Davy DMX – The DMX Will Rock

Tuff City (US) [TUF 120003] 1985

This was the highly successful follow-up to ‘One For The Treble’ and included an electro instrumental plus alternative rap version which featured Queens natives, Leonie J and Sweet Tee. Leonie was the female counterpart to Jerome Prister in Output before appearing on this track rapping in a British accent and Sweet Tee went on to sign with Profile Records and release a number of singles and an album.

There are two label variations for this release which have different track times, both of which are incorrect. The first pressing has the scratch mix printed on the label but both pressings are exactly the same. I’ve included the actual track times below.
