Heavy 70's modern soul funk / boogie disco funk rarity from Metairie, Louisiana. Batiste Band is also known as Batiste Brothers.

Vinyl rip from my 45's records collection. I've get this record from one of the dealers in New Orleans area, and I guess it survived the Catrina disaster. All the grooves was in the rusty dust and it sounded awfull with a hell of a hiss noise, but after a good cleaning, the record begin to sound pretty well and find it's way to my modern soul funk playbox! Great choone!
Song lyrics excerpt:
Saw you dancing on the floor
You looks so good - stole the show
Shining in the night starlight!
Lazer sharper bright starlite!
The universal light star light!
Makes everything all right starlite!
