Today’s Sparkle Video featuring A Taste of Honey appearing on Soul Train was chosen because I think this that this track is their best.  It doesn’t seem to get as much play as their bigger, Grammy winning hit “Boogie Oogie Oogie” however, “Rescue Me” has such an unforgettable “bounce”  and gleaming happiness that it really needs to be in heavy rotation everywhere.  Radio stations and dance floors alike should be spinning this sparkling gem more often and I want to get that movement started.  Because while a band fronted by two gorgeous ladies may not have been unusual in 1980, a band fronted by two gorgeous ladies like Hazel and Janice-Marie, dazzlingly dressed in sequins who also play guitar and bass, was certainly not the norm.  So- let’s be sure to recognize Superstars when we see them Soldiers!  Also, let’s not forget that this music is the sparkling “backbone” of the Funky Four Plus One‘s rap classic “That’s The Joint”– which it was and still is .
