“Specific” by the B.T. Specific


B.T. Specific (initially named Brooklyn Transit Specific) was an American funk/disco group, that had various profitable songs in the course of the Seventies. The group was a part of the “Brooklyn sound” of the early Seventies, fashioned from three gamers of the group King Davis Home Rockers.

The Home Rockers had been an area dance band who had launched a few obscure singles (1967’s “We All Make Errors Generally” on Verve Information, 1972’s “Rum Punch”) The three gamers (guitarist Richard Thompson, tenor sax participant Invoice Risbrook, and alto sax participant Carlos Ward) fashioned Madison Road Specific together with bassist Louis Risbrook (later Muslim-monickered Jamal Rasool), percussionist Dennis Rowe, drummer Terrell Wooden, and vocalist Barbara Wooden.

They together with producer Jeff Lane signed with manufacturing firm Roadshow Information to file author Billy Nichols “Do It (‘Til You’re Happy).” The file was shopped round to main labels till it was accepted at Scepter Information. Scepter steered the group change its identify from Madison Road Specific, therefore the Brooklyn Transit Specific.

The one was launched in August 1974, and reached the highest 10. Lane took the group again into the studios at that time to file a second single and pitch a full album to the label. Scepter agreed to the LP and to Roadshow Information having its personal label inside Scepter Information. Supply
