B. T. Express signed with production company Roadshow Records then a deal was struck with Scepter, initially they recorded as the Madison Street Express - they rehearsed on Brooklyn’s Madison street - but the label insisted they change their name and B.T. Express was born - BT short for Brothers Trucking but the group didn’t like it so changed it to Brooklyn Transit.

Their 1974 debut album ‘Do It (’Til You’re Satisfied)’ was recorded in Ultra-Sonic Recording Studios in Hempstead, Long Island with producers Jeff Lane and Trade Martin and arranger Randy Muller who also performed with Brass Construction. The album was also given Gold certification.
