Video: Throwback Jam: Odyssey "Inside Out" 1982



This song was re-introduced to me by @elegantslummer on Twitter. The Slave produced "Inside Out", written by Jesse Rae, peaked at #12 in 1982....as you can tell there are similarities to slave's Hit at the time "Watching you". I think this throwback record is mesmerizing and Funky...Plus the lead singers voice has a haunting feel to it...I love it!
