Friday Night Dancin'

On this Friday, I think I will post my favorite Taka Boom track in "Night Dancin'". This song was included as the leading single off of her 1979 self-titled debut album. I was happy to find this record when I visited my hometown of Sacramento, Ca. this past summer. For those that don't know, Taka Boom, who's name is really Yvonne Stevens, is the sister of Chaka Khan. Even though I think "Night Dancin'" is by far the best track off of her self-titled record, I also find myself enjoying other album cuts like "Red Hot" and "Cloud Dancer". Now go enjoy your Friday night!

Great choice! I have Taka's 3 LPs and she's terrific. What a shame that she hasn't had the attention her sister (who is awesome, of course) has had.

my fave is "red hot" a little bit lower tempo comparated to "night dancing" but works perfectly as it s very dramatic / electronic. i love that tune.
