Anthony and the Camp

Anthony and the Camp were a dance group consisting of producer Anthony Malloy, Crawford Peterson, Henley Goddard and Linden Aaron.

Anthony already had a #1 dance hit with his former music group, Temper.
In 1986, the group released their first single, "What I Like" which topped Billboard's dance charts, making it one of their biggest hits to date.

The song also peaked at #3 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Maxi-Singles Sales chart and #80 on Billboard's Hot Black Singles chart, staying on the chart for 5 weeks.
In 1988, Anthony and the Camp released their debut album, "Suspense" which didn't chart at all on the Billboard 200.
The follow-up single, "Suspense" peaked at #30 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Club Play chart and #39 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Maxi-Singles Sales chart.

After that, nothing much has been heard from them and they have seemed to faded into obscurity.
