Bootsy’s Rubber Band (1982) Body Slam! 12″

Very Brief:
Back in July, the 7″ promo of this single was posted as part of 7s in 7.  I promised then that this 12″ would show up later.  Well, it’s later and, as promised, here’s the full-length 12″ of “Body Slam!” by Bootsy Collins and his Rubber Band.  “Body Slam!” was a stand alone single released in 1982 and was never included on an album until 1994 as part of a compilation called ‘Back in the Day: The Best of Bootsy’.  The single did well on the charts, just barely missing the Top 10 on both the R&B and Dance charts.

    Thanks for posting this record. I have the double CD with this track on it, but the song cuts out before the end.

    • djrichiep says:

      The CD from 1994? The ending is edited off? So, this version on the 12″ is still technically vinyl only?

      • bobbih2 says:

        I think my CD is defective and literally cuts out at about 2 minutes into the song. I don’t know if that’s the fact on every one of the CD’s, but the song on mine is incomplete.
