    Past, Present, and the Futures LP (1978)

    Philadelphia International Records

Up there with Ernie Hines for one track wonders. I have a feeling that this wasn't pressed in Teddy Pendergrass-type numbers for Philly International because I never see it. I had to break down and buy it from the Subway man. "Ain't No Time Fa Nothing," makes me feel 12 feet tall in a pyramid-like fantasy, third eye gazing in Earth, Wind, and Fire b-boy stance, arms folded. I'm about to loop the outro instrumental for 30 minutes just as a soundtrack to my daily life. The vocal harmonies are a la Dramatics while some dude named "Sugarbear" plods along on the bass. Hot to death disco banger all around and the Africa pennant and pins adorned by members of the group on the front cover are fresh as hayle too.
