    Disco/Funk band. Formed in 1970, New York City. Active in the ’70s and ’80s – they released an impressive 22 albums in two decades time. They were the band concept of innovative drummer Bill Curtis that wished to merge the “fatback” jazz beat of New Orleans into a funk band. Their 1979 single “King Tim III” is sometimes considered the first hip hop single. – Discogs

    The band name and album title are set in filled-in Impacta, a fat and solid design by Dave Davison, available at Photo-Lettering. The Perception Records logo is set in Albertus.
