Liner Notes
THIS ALBUM MARKS THE START OF A PROMISING CAREER FOR AN EXTREMELY GIFTED MUSICIAN. HERMAN KELLY AND LIFE'S UNIQUE CREATIVE SOUND IS EXPLOSIVE!--JUDY ROSENTHAL (JAN. 4, 1978), MIAMI HURRICANE NEWS EDITOR WE'RE VERY EXCITED ABOUT HERMAN KELLY & LIFE AND HIS LATEST DISCO CUT, "WHO'S THE FUNKY D.J." AND WHY SHOULDN'T WE BE? AFTER PLAYING A TEST PRESSING ONE AFTERNOON FOR THE DISCO SPINNERS ASSEMBLED AT FLORIDA RECORD POOL HEADQUARTERS THE EXCITEMENT IT GENERATED SHOOK THE BUILDING. SOME D.J.'S EVEN TRIED TO STEAL OUR ONLY COPY IN ORDER TO BE THE FIRST TO PLAY IT IN A DISCOTHEQUE. AND WHY NOT FOR HERMAN KELLY HAS TUNED IN AND TURNED ON DISCO MUSIC'S MOST CRITICAL AND HARD TO PLEASE AUDIENCE. THE DISCO D.J., THE BEAT, THE MIX, AND THE BREAKS ON "WHO'S THE FUNKY D.J." ARE ALL GEARED TO GRAB THE FANS BY THE SEAT OF THEIR BLANK-BLANK AND BRING THEM TO A ROLLING BOIL ON THE DANCE FLOOR. WHICH RETURNS US TO THE ORIGINAL QUESTION "WHO'S THE FUNKY D.J."...YOU ARE HERMAN...!--BO CRANE AND BRUCE HARD, FLORIDA RECORD POOL, MIAMI, FLA. AFTER MANY YEARS OF LISTENING AND BEING INVOLVED WITH MUSIC, I MUST AGREE WITH WHAT I HEARD THE KIDS SAY WHEN THEY REALLY LIKED A SONG ON THAT T.V. DANCE SHOW..."I LIKE THE BEAT". WELL, THAT PHRASE CAN JUSTIFIABLY BE APPLIED TO HERMAN KELLY & LIFE'S HIT 45, "DANCE TO THE DRUMMER'S BEAT", AND THAT IS WHY IT MADE NO. 1 IN RECORD TIME HERE AT WEDR FM, MIAMI. I ALSO FEEL I SHOULD WARN YOU TO BRACE YOURSELF AND YOUR SOUL FOR THIS LP BY HERMAN KELLY & LIFE, "PERCUSSION EXPLOSION", FOR IT WILL DEFINITELY SHAKE YOUR SOUL TO THE MAX.--JERRY J. RUSHIN, PROGRAM DIRECTOR WEDR FM, MIAMI. "PERCUSSION EXPLOSION" A BEAUTIFUL, TWITCHING, TICKING MUSICAL TIME BOMB THAT'S GONNA' GET YA' SOONER OR LATER.--JON MARLOWE / MIAMI NEWS
