Dayton, 1975-early 80s 

Even when living in Funk City, you need a break to get your career moving. For Dayton's Faze-O, their break was being discovered and mentored by the Ohio Players' Clarence "Satch" Satchell. Satch, and the other OP members, helped the band by using them for an opening act and playing on their records.

Faze-O released three LPs on the Atlantic subisdiary She Records. The group's first 45 was their biggest, "Riding High", which was also the name of their debut LP. The group members were Keith Harrision (keyboards, vocals), Ralph "Love" Aikens (guitar), Tyrone "Flye" Crum (bass), Roger Parker (drums), and Roben Neal Jr (Percussion, vocals). Satchell produced the LP and co-wrote several songs.

The group came back with another 45, "Good Thang", and an LP of the same name, but the 45 was a lower chart hit. The third 45, "Breakin' The Funk" didn't chart, and the LP that came with it was not successful either.

Other than that, we don't have much for details.
