This a different Kevin Goins. Don't feel bad. I made the same mistake.

Funk 'n' Roll Bobba, Quazar ... one of my favorites. From Plainfield NJ. Even though there's no relation, I gotta give 'em big ups, they may never get another mention here again.
P-Funk vocalist Glen Goins was the leader, his lil' brother Kevin became the lead vocalist when Glen suddenly passed. Their one and only album (1978) was the second most successful spin-off from the Parliament-Funkadelic-Bootsy's Rubber Band Triune. The most successful was The Brides of Funkenstein's 1st album, which featured the hit "Disco to Go".

I thought the same thing about Kevgo until I deducted from a few of his posts that he was too young to be the same guy.
Actually, a funky Detroit favorite P-Funk spin-off act thread could be a fun diversion. If Bootsy's Rubber Band doesn't count, my favorite would be a toss-up between the Brides of Funkenstein and Fred Wesley and the Horny Horns.
I've never even heard the Eddie Hazel album "Games, Dames & Guitar Thangs" to comment on it, although I've been looking for years.

Quazar was the brainchild of the late Glen Goins. Glen has been working on this album since 1977 for Armen Boladian's Westbound label. A better deal came from Arista Records. Glen decided to shop the record to Arista which he couldn't do because of the deal he had sigbed with Westbound. Glen stole the original mastertapes from the Westbound studio but was arrested on his way to Arista. He was in a bad situation, Westbound was furious and pulled back the release while Arista was waiting for the album tapes. Glen decided to go back into the studio and re-recorded most tracks of the album. Jerome Brailey stepped in during the recording sessions and took over the last part of the production. Tragedy was that Glen died during the recording. The result was a total new Quazar album for Arista. Westbound is still the owner of the un-released album. I have the tapes and I must say that the original album is much much better than the Arista release. Kevin Goins, brother of Glen is blessed with the same soulful voice of his late brother.
