Tony Camillo's Bazuka ‎– Side Dish 1975

Tony Camillo's Bazuka - Earthquake


Bazuka was a 1970s New York disco studio group organized by Tony Camillo that had a 1975 Top Ten hit with "Dynomite." Likely cashing in on the fame of the hit TV series Good Times, whose character J.J. Evans (played by comedian Jimmie Walker") used to cap off his on-screen rhymes with "Dynomite!!".

This was a big favorite song as I was in second grade when this got a lot of airplay that Dynomite catchphrase was permanently ingrained in my being thanks to this song I still enjoy hearing this believe it or not
 
These videos are the first time I'd heard anything from the record!
 
Is the reel to reel master tape of Bazuka destroyed by the Universal Studios fire back on June 8, 2008?? Can't find the album on Apple iTunes.
 
This is a terrific album. I used to pair it up with RandyAndy and the none EW&F album I owned. TO me it sounds like a cross between RandyAndy and EW&F...

I have the song "Dynomite" on the very limited A&M HISTORY 100 CD set. It's the full album version.

Rudy,
The 3405 of Love Will Keep Us Together appeared about the same time as 4552. I remember Record Club of America switched to actual catalog numbers for the albums it sold from the 6 digit system it used and 3405 was listed. The copy I got from Columbia House at the same time was 4552. Later on, they
issued the album as 3405. I wonder if the 3405 was intended for the record clubs at first?
