Released 1980, Columbia JC 36333. Matrix, Runout: BL 36333. If you’ve never listened to a record by . Express, this probably isn’t the place to start. Not that it is a bad album, it’s just not a really good album – but the good cuts on it are pretty damn good. The quintessential 1970s funk sound of the band’s classic years is being updated for a new era here, complete with futuristic themes in the cover art and a little bit of the music. Take the opening cut, Taking Off!, which appears to be about getting an aerobic workout in outer space.

Express (originally named Brooklyn Transit Express) was an American funk/disco group, that had a number of successful songs during the 1970s. The group was part of the "Brooklyn sound" of the early 1970s, formed from three players of the group King Davis House Rockers.
