2009 Marbled Green Vinyl Reissue Of This Kickin' 1974 Original. “Though Little Known In Their Native U.S., The Parisian-Based Lafayette Afro Rock Band Was Among The Premier Funk Outfits Of The 1970s, Later Becoming A Seemingly Endless Source Of Samples And Breaks For Artists From Public Enemy To Janet Jackson. The Group Was Formed On Long Island, NY As The Bobby Boy Congress; Deciding America Was Already Overloaded With Funk Acts, In 1971 They Relocated To France, But When Frontman Bobby Boy Returned Stateside In 1972 The Remaining Members — Guitarist Larry Jones, Bassist Lafayette Hudson, Keyboardist Frank Abel, Horn Players Ronnie James Buttacavoli And Arthur Young, Drummer Ernest "Donny" Donable And Percussionists Keno Speller And Arthur Young — Renamed Themselves Ice And Became The House Session Band At Producer Pierre Jaubert's Parisound Studio. Regularly Performing Live In Paris' Barbesse District — An Area Made Up Primarily Of African Immigrants — Ice's Driving Funk Became Increasingly Influenced By African Rhythms And Textures, And In The Wake Of Their 1973 Debut LP Each Man Makes His Own Destiny, Jaubert Changed The Group's Name To The Lafayette Afro Rock Band.” – Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide
