On The Beat

Here is classic tune by studio concept band The Brooklyn Bronx and Queens Band also known as The BB and Q Band "On The Beat". This was the brainchild of Jacques Fred Petrus and Mauro Malavasi who decided to name this band after the three boroughs in New York City that the band members came from.  Petrus is also known for producing Macho, Change and the Peter Jacques Band.  Sadly, I was told by Wiki that Petrus was murdered in 1987.  On The Beat was initially released in 1981 from their self tittled debut LP and  became their biggest hit.  They released to more LP's but never matched the success of this killer dance floor beauty.  This is the '87 Bronx Mix which I think is their best.  Enjoy!
