Default Raydio-Ray Parker Junior

Ray Parker Junior:
Pretty Much Unheard Of, Except For A Sad Little Ditty Called Ghostbusters! He Actually Produced Some Of The Best Disco Funk Of The Late '70's And Supported Bootsy Collins Rubber Band ( Funkadelic And Parliament), When He Toured Over Here In about '78. He Has Made A Recent Re-Appearance Disguised (?) As A Bus Conductor On The Latest 118 Advert!


Below Zero.

A couple of Ray Parker Junior songs have special resonance for me because they remind me of specific events.

This is one of them.

I live the life of a happy man. I just hope he doesn't wan't it back.

Yeah, it's really something that he's really only known for his Ghostbusters song.

I bought the "two places at once record" because it had a funny cover...the music itself is pretty pedestrian and there's about 1000 better bands in his niche. I don't think he's underated at all.

.....ghostbusters was a work of genius though.

I remember Ray Parker. He had some hits in the 70's and also wrote New Edition's 1984 hit "Mr. Telephone Man".

pretty decent band i'd say.

I'd rate Raydio on a scale from 1 to 10 as a 7

Ray Parker on his own I'd give him a 6
