“The Boys are Back in Town” – Bus Boys

Continuing the Walter Hill thread from the last post is this seminal R&B song prominently used in Hill’s 1982 film “48 Hours” The film featured Eddie Murphy’s debut as a film actor and 30 years later, is still one of the most electrifying debut performances in movie history. The song is amazing and the Bus Boys, a tremendously underrated R&B / rock band from the early 1980s, were like the Blasters, albeit with more of a Stax-Volt feel.  Another great band that didn’t fit into any prescribed niche and therefore, slipped through the cracks commercially.
