All Music Guide:

One of the classic Washington, D.C., go-go bands, Rare Essence carried the torch from the music's early-'80s heyday well into the 1990s. Founded by drummer Quentin "Footz" Davidson, the group debuted in 1981 with "Body Moves," quickly emerging alongside Trouble Funk, E.U., and others among the top go-go bands in the D.C. area; despite countless lineup changes, Rare Essence continued recording and touring regularly throughout the years which followed, seeing many of their albums reissued during the mid-'90s.
