SLY FOX "LET'S GO ALL THE WAY"
by Mark Nobes, chief editor
Fox consisted of Gary "Mudbone" Cooper, an African American funk
session musician, and Michael Camacho, a Puerto-Rican accented vocalist.
The single was taken from the album of the same name, but this was their only chart hit, reaching #3 in the UK and #7 in the U.S. The video had a lot of airplay and appears to be anti-war at times, and although the title of the song would suggest something sexual, the lyrics are actually quite political and suggest a yearning for peace.
The duo released three more singles during 1986 - Como Tu Te Llama, Stay True and Don't Play With Fire - before splitting-up in 1988 due to "artistic differences".
The duo briefly reformed in 1989 to record four new songs. Cooper released an album in 2006 entitled "Fresh Mud" under the name Mudbone. Camacho currently runs a jazz lounge bar in New York City.
I bought this single in 1985 on 7" vinyl from Woolworths. However, I just wonder now why didn't I buy the 12"? Damn fool!
