‘Pleasure from the Buddha Group’

When that’s the name of the recording company, you know you’re in for something good. This song, “Rubber Band,” by the Trammps from the Zing Album (1975), is exactly what I like to wake up to on weekends. You might recognize it from samples by The Game in ‘Hate it or Love it’ or J [...]
