This was just bait, right? Oh well, Us3 arguably was the first group to
get widespread commercial recognition for the "aj-type" sound in the US
with their 93 release "hand on the torch" with the track "cantaloop" that
appeared on at least a couple of comps. Or maybe it is just because this
was one of the first recordings I picked up, along with the Red Hot +
Cool "stolen moments" comp, that got me interested in this music...and
joining this list...and contributing lots of money to the recording industry.
