Hoops Tunes from the Early 80s

Many moons ago a bunch of Trouble Funk tracks were seared into my brain thanks to someone making a tape and playing it, along with Rick James, on a ginormous boombox while we were playing hoops. Other guys would bring AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Led Zeppelin, etc. so the music was eclectic to say the least.
