"In 1981, Leroy Franklin went into the San Antonio studio of Manny Guerra with a group of session musicians to record his 2-sided masterpiece, 'Star Bird.' The A-side, a spiritual, funky slice of modern soul, is reason enough for DJs and collectors to put this 45 in their box. The flip, a spontaneous anti-drug rap over Star Bird's instrumental track is a dancefloor filler. Recorded just over a year after 'Rapper's Delight,' 'Star Bird II' is quite possibly, the first rap record ever recorded in Texas."
