Cheaper to keeper  –  MFSB (Originally called ‘The Family’ when a few singles were released on the ‘test-bed’ label North Bay Records … for years i was completely oblivious to the fact that this trak was a hit for Johnnie Taylor)

Rock the house  –  Nicole (This trak came from the same lp/cd that was released on different labels under different titles in different years – most confusing …. and that’s probably why this trak was not as successful as it should have been)
