Brick's second album release on the Bang imprint had the Atlanta-based funk ensemble standing on solid ground. "Dusic" came charging onto the charts and dancefloors nationwide, and for good reason. With falsetto-layered vocals and a gritty, soulful backing track, "Dusic" worked its way to number two on the R&B charts. With lead vocals sung in unison, "Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody" came right behind it with plenty of locomotion and stamina. The single popped the Top Ten at number seven inside of 15 weeks. The self-contained band had to its credit the reed and brass virtuoso Jimmy Brown. On "Happy," Brown improvises his way through each verse, switching from one reed instrument to brass and back again -- an outstanding horn exhibition on this appropriately titled number. The entire album is superb.
