New Yorker Vaughn Mason's claim to fame is the spectacular disco/funk
single "Bounce, Rock, Skate, Roll," credited to Vaughan
Mason & Crew. That song, released on Brunswick, hit the top
five of the U.S. R&B chart in 1980 and became the title track
of the group's first and only album.
The single also became sample
fodder for several rap songs, including Digital Underground's "Doowutchyalike," Heavy
D's "Black Coffee," De La Soul's "Cool Breeze
on the Rocks," and Redman's "Slide and Rock On." Two
other singles from Vaughan Mason & Crew ("Roller Skate" and "Jammin'
Big Guitar") followed for Brunswick, though neither fared
hardly as well as the first.
