We're On Our Way Home

 
The underrecognized Detroit band Brainstorm chalked up a couple of shining moments in the late 1970s.  They were formed in 1976 and featured the vocal prowess of Belita Woods, who later joined P-Funk as a backing singer, and writing and production input from the likes of Jerry Peters and Rick Gianatos.  "Lovin' Is Really My Game" broke them in 1977 and the song has been covered several times, most recently by Ann Nesby. "We're On Our Way Home" is probably preferred by hardcore disco fans, and is now a certified classic and source of samples by house producers.  It was spotlighted on the Disco Forever compilation put out by Barely Breaking Even.   Little known fact: Deon Estus, who had a minor hit in the late 1980s with "Heaven Help Me" did guest vocals and played bass on Brainstorm's albums.
