We sang the vocal twice, keeping the second one. Then would come the brilliance of PLANET PATROL'S "PLAY AT YOUR OWN RISK" Album. The finest version of recorded NEO-SOUL, which is what we were doing, that was ever produced. I think it ended the whole idea of vocal groups trying to record in this style.

While Planet Patrol was one of numerous outlets for electro architects Arthur Baker and John Robie, the group itself was a quintet of singers with deep soul roots - most notably the Energetics, an act that worked with Brian and Eddie Holland and released an album on Atlantic in 1978. The vocalists, led by Herb Jackson, stick close to their background with a faithful cover of Todd Rundgren's blue-eyed Philly soul classic It Wouldn’t Have Made Any Difference. Otherwise, the group’s lone album is pure electro, albeit a form that allowed enough space for the voices to shine through.
