Try To Relax

  

 
There seemed to be an epidemic of white cats who wanted to funkify their sound in the early 70s, and Ballin' Jack is a classic example of one such group.  Perhaps they put a little too much groove in their music, as pop radio ignored their albums.  They would have their revenge when Young MC's "Bust A Move" made their "Find A Child" a cult collectable, which led to the discovery of "Never Let Em Say" and "Time To Relax."
