2013 collection from the Disco/Dance troupe. The brainchild of San Franciscan DJ/producer Bill Motley, the Boys Town Gang were a hastily assembled fictitious group in the classic industry mould of Shalamar. The group's first release contained two tracks that instantly became underground club classics. A disco-fied medley of the two early solo Diana Ross hits 'Ain't No Mountain High Enough' and 'Remember Me' immediately opened doors for the group when it appeared on DJ set lists all over the USA in 1981. But the powerhouse track turned out to be on the flipside. 'Cruisin' the Streets' had a new sound that set it apart from any disco record before it. With lead vocals by Cynthia Manley the song was overtly sexual and homoerotic. When 'Cruisin' the Streets' became a massive international club hit a permanent group was formed featuring vocalist Jackson Moore replacing Manley. The newly formed trio's biggest hit was their disco-fied cover of the Andy Williams hit 'Can't Take My Eyes Off You' which landed them a top ten UK hit in 1982. Hot Shot Records.
