Forgotten Treasure NYC Peech Boys “Come On, Come On” (1984)

I was introduced to this song a few months ago on a trip to my favorite records store. When the co-owner saw me grabbing that 12″, he looked at me dead in the eye and said “This is the best Larry Levan production ever made”. I wasn’t familiar with it …
