Roger and the Human Body


In 1977, Roger and the Human Body issued their first single “Freedom”. Within two years, Roger and his brothers were discovered by George Clinton, who signed the newly-christened Zapp to his Uncle Jam Records label in 1979. Zapp made their professional television debut on the first and only Funk Music Awards show. A year later, as Uncle Jam Records was forced to close, Zapp signed to Warner Bros. Records and released their self-titled debut, which yielded the Bootsy Collins produced & Troutman-composed hit, “More Bounce to the Ounce.” The song peaked at number two on the Billboard Soul Singles chart in the fall of 1980. The debut album reached the top twenty of the Billboard 200 and firmly launched Zapp and Roger into the national spotlight.
Vale lembrar que tudo começou depois deste disco, e conta a lenda que este disco teve 3 capas antes desta, e foi limitadissimo na sua prensagem oficial com apenas 500 copias, sendo relançado em CD mais tarde.
