1978-Number 35 single.
Best Bit-At 2.39.It’s amazing how the years don’t change the way you feel about certain songs. Even after all this time, I still get the same vibe off this song, as I did as a teenager.
Back in the mid to late 1970’s not quite everybody, but certainly many artists of the day, had a go at the Disco market.
Cleveland Eaton was born on August 31, 1939, in Fairfield, Alabama, U.S., he has performed on over 100 Albums for artists as diverse as Frank Sinatra, Herbie Hancock, and The Temptations. Two of his long standing associations were with the Count Basie Orchestra, where he was nicknamed,’The Count’s Bassist,’ and also as a musician playing bass alongside Ramsey Lewis (see also best songs 525.)
‘Bama Boogie Woogie’ was taken from Eaton’s 1976 Album ‘Instant Hip,’ it was predominantly a Funk, and Soul collection, from a man who can turn his hand to any musical genre, from Jazz, to Swing, to R&B, and of course Disco dancing.
‘Bama boogie, got my boogie woogie bama boogie, got my boogie woogie.’
