Originally released in 1983 on Becket Records, "Time To Throw Down" is a slick and futuristic bulldozer of boogie-electro. Somewhere between P-funk & boogie, its high voltage electric bass, face slapping drums and creeping tectonic force is one of Paul Thomas' most masterful creations. The bandleader had produced three 12" single's released under the title Circle City Band in 1983-84, one of those records titled "Magic" became extremely popular in the mid1980's, but this record was supposed to be the 4th 12" single on Becket Records.
At the same time in 1983, when Reggie Griffin and Paul Thomas was mixing this instrumental track in L.A, the reverend Rickie Clark originally from Circle City in Indianapolis, came to see them and fell in love with the track, asking if he could used it for himself.
Licensed reissue on dinked 7" vinyl with an alternative edit of the track on the flip. Tasty!

Boogie Butt continue to provide rare-ass boogie and electro-funk reissues on 7". A true holy grail, you'd be looking at dropping at least a ton on this beaut if you were to even lay your eyes on a copy!
