Consumer Guide Reviews:

"Body Music" [Prelude 12-inch, 1981]
If your idea of a good time is heavy-breathing jungle sounds and chants of "Do the punk rock" and "Ashkenazi" (well, that's what it sounds like) over spare disco-funk, rush out and buy this left-field street record. The hard-to-find Cesaree-label original goes lighter on the clavinet and has a real B-side. Hunh! B+
