Remote Control by The Reddings on Grooveshark

Pop Bits:  This group's debut album "The Awakening" yielded this minor pop chart entry. However, the song reached #6 on the R&B chart. The group would record a total of six albums and get 11 singles on the R&B chart before calling it a day after their last LP in 1988.

ReduxReview:  Nothing really thrilling here. Just a good funky jam that is an easy listen. The chorus has hints of a future Bobby Brown hit - "My Prerogative."

ReduxRating:  5/10

Trivia:  If the name of the group brings to mind Otis Redding, it should. The group consisted of Redding's two sons, Otis III and Dexter, and their cousin Mark Lockett.
