SlyFoxLetsGoThis week sees a near One Hit Wonder enter the Hot 100. Sly Fox was a duo formed in early 1985: funk musician Gary “Mudbone” Cooper — who had worked with George Clinton and Bootsy Collins — and singer Michael Camacho. The pair recorded a funky album of dance tunes for Capitol.

The title track of Let’s Go All the Way entered the Hot 100 at #85 this week. It eased up the chart, peaking at #7 in an impressive six-month run. Two follow-up singles stiffed, and the duo dissolved. Both men continue to work in the music industry.
