"Snap Shot" by Slave

Song#:  0788
Date:  10/24/1981
Debut:  99
Peak:  91
Weeks:  7
Genre:  R&B, Funk

Pop Bits:  Slave followed up their gold-selling "Stone Jam" album that featured the single "Watching You" (#78 pop, #6 R&B) with "Show Time." The album was not quite as popular and this first single couldn't shovel itself out of the pop basement. However, it was another R&B Top 10 hitting #6. It would be the group's final pop chart entry.

ReduxReview: "Snap......EeeYooooooooooooo!" Well, that little chorus bit certain sticks in your head. And not really in a good way. It is just emphasized to the max. Again with Slave, it is good reliable funk but nothing outstanding for EeeYoooooooooooo! to hear.

ReduxRating:  5/10

Trivia:  Singer/drummer Steve Arrington had joined the group on their third album. "Show Time" would be his fourth and final with the group. He left to form his own band Steve Arrington's Hall of Fame and then go solo later in 1985. His biggest hit was as a solo artist with "Dancin' in the Key of Life" which reached #8 at R&B and was his only pop chart entry at #68.
