Plattenschau #30 - Terry Gengis

7" (Gengis Kahn Records)

Chicago's own Terry Gengis brought us two really fresh singles during the early eighties which are both tuff to get nowadays. And thats for a good reason. Listen to 'Shape That Body' and you'll hear a dope boogie-roller with a slappy bassline, instrumental parts etc...lowrider stuff. But what makes this record a real jewl is the flipside with the incredible 'Gonna Be There', (co-)written by Jesus Wayne, who also produced Terry's other single 'Ooh Sha Sha' and more great songs like the 'Chicago Party Theme'. Perfect-Boogie right here imo, but convince yourself:

Gonna Be There
