TIMMY THOMAS - HAVE SOME BOOGALOO


This is the killer debut single from Indiana born-relocated to Memphis (at the time of this record)- then eventually ending up in Florida (where he had a massive hit with the incredible "Why Can't we Live Together") Timmy.

I love how the rhythm box and the drummer go out of sync in a few spots. Think that would be allowed in a modern record?????

from 1967...
