Expanded edition of disco funk band B.T. Express’s 1975 sophomore album, Non-Stop, plus five bonus tracks. The band’s second #1 R&B album following its monumental debut, Do It (’Til You’re Satisfied), Non-Stop spun off the double-sided Top 5 R&B hit single “Peace Pipe” and “Give It What You Got.” Featuring five tracks mixed by the legendary Tom Moulton, Non-Stop leans more towards disco than B.T.’s first album yet remains funky to the core. Elsewhere, B.T. Express transforms Bacharach and David’s “Close To You” into an epic quiet storm male-female duet.

The band’s final album with its original lineup, Non-Stop for the first time features the full-length LP versions of all tracks on CD. This definitive reissue also includes four 7” mixes/edits plus the CD debut of Mike Maurro’s 10-minute disco remix of “Peace Pipe,” all remastered by Donald Cleveland.
