It's weird once you start noticing records by a particular artist or producer, then it feels like their stuff pops up everywhere. That is the case with this Andre Williams produced 7” on Toddlin' Town Records by Thomas East & the Playboys. I copped this 45 a month or so ago, without any familiarity of Thomas East, but with a pretty good idea I was bringing home some heat thanks to Andre Williams' involvement. The first side is “I Get A Groove”, a banging JB inspired funk cut that has Mr. East proclaiming a special baby moves him to to get a groove. Really diggin' those horns! The flip is a sauntering blues cut, “You're What's Happening” that provides a grooving backdrop for the vocalist to express his excitement towards an especially pretty baby that exudes 'soul and poise'. Dude sounds like a real lady killer.
Side One: "I Get A Groove"
Side Two: "You're What's Happening"
