Bon Rock & The Rythem Rebellion

This is the debut release for Bon Rock (Keith Rodgers) and was the first for Reelin & Rockin Records based in Staten Island. He was a DJ at the time and had his own show called Bon Rock Live on W.H.B.I. 105.9FM. The track used the classic disco track “Searching To Find The One” by Unlimited Touch.

There are a few label variations for this release including a limited press on red vinyl. The European releases are credited as just Bon Rock and includ the track ‘Brixton Bop’.
