"WOW!!! I used to love these guys when I was in high school and had forgotten about them until recently when I saw this disc in a used bin at a record store. When I put the disc on I could hardly believe my ears! The level of musicianship, quality of arrangements, and man oh man, Emanuel Rahiem Leblanc's voice is astounding!!! I didn't remember what a truly spectacular singer this guy was - an absolute equal of any of the great R&B stars of the 70's or 80's. To label them a "disco" band only, would be doing a misservice to the group. Their music skillfully and beautifully fuses soul, funk, doo-wop, and R&B. I believe it's much more musically substantial than a "disco band" label implies, that's all.
Judging by alot of the feedback here they can apparently still throw down in concert as well. That's not a surprise. Listen to the skill all the players in this band possess and you'll see why this band's music is timeless - sounds as good today as 20-30 years ago, and will sound as good 50 years from now. I sure hope they play Minneapolis soon!!!"

"I remember when the song "I Do Love You" played on the radio in the late 70's. This was my first introduction to GQ, and I've loved their music ever since. Their greatest hits were the Billy Stewart remakes like the one mentioned above and "Sitting in the Park". The other songs were nice but didn't quite have the appeal of the Billy Stewart remakes. The 1st track "Disco Nights (Rock Freak)" is their quintessential contribution to the disco era. It was a top hit and definitely an essential to any disco dance collection. If you like GQ, this will be the only CD you will ever need to own by them!"
