AnthonyCampWhatILikeThis week sees a dance band notch their biggest hit. Producer and composer Anthony Malloy had charted once with electro-boogie outfit Temper, hitting #1 on the Dance chart and scraping onto the R&B. When Temper dissolved, he gathered another set of musicians, forming Anthony and the Camp.

Their debut single, What I Like, entered the Dance chart on April 12, 1986. This week, its seventh on the chart, it began a three-week run as the #1 Dance track. That made it the biggest Dance #1 of the year, but the Camp quickly faded. They managed one more Dance Top 10 and dented the lower end of the R&B charts with What I Like, then disappeared.
