Consumer Rapport
7″ Single, 1975
Wing and a Prayer Record Co.

Kid tested. Big Daddy Kane approved. We want that old pimp sh#% too!

The first time I heard this 45 was an extremely gratifying experience. It was one of those sounds that had taken up permanent residence in my brain ever since I heard it on “Big Daddy’s Theme” in 1989. But like so many sounds from my junior high years – a time when I didn’t care about the details of music, it took me a while to remember exactly where it was from.

So, my question is: who is Tone (of “Yo Tone, play me some old pimp sh#%”)? The credits say the track was produced by Kane and the other major players were Mister Cee, Scoob and Scrap (obviously), Marley Marl and Easy Mo Bee.

There doesn’t seem to be that much out there on Consumer Rapport. has a bunch of variations of singles that all have the A-Side of this 45, “Ease on Down the Road.” No albums. Anyone know anything about them?

Songs are available for two weeks.

Ask Me
Ecstasy, Passion & Pain
7″ Single, 1974
Roulette Records

This is another gem from the new borrowed 45 stash. I posted Danny Krivit’s edit of this song early last year but was unfamiliar with the original until just now.

I don’t know that much about what is “disco’s first super group” according to their bio on but there are some interesting facts mentioned like that the group was a self-contained band. Barbara Gaskins, the leader singer and writer of this and most of their songs, played guitar. Also fairly uncommon at the time (and still), the group’s drummer (Althea “Cookie” Smith) was female. Blue Note recording artist Ronnie Foster (best known to the hip hop generation as the artist behind “Mystic Brew” which was sampled for “Electric Relaxation”) was also part of the group for a time.

The rinky-dinky intro (not included in Danny Krivit’s edit) is somewhat surprising considering how driven the rest of the song is.

Songs are available for two weeks.
