One of a handful of releases on NYC imprint Park Place and the only collaboration between Greg Henderson (check the excellent "Dreamin' 12" on Sam Records) and L. Whitfield, "Dancin' To The Beat" is at the moment one of my top ten post-disco boogie joints. Of course these mental lists tend to change often but the stone cold guitar hook alone brings it back for me every time.
The vocal version was all set to be posted several weeks back when we received a random email looking for a rip of the instrumental. Unfortunately at the moment I was running out the door to catch a plane to Southeast Asia and did not have the time to record it. It was my bad, this particular instrumental should never have been left out in the first place. So here we have the vocal and instrumental mixes, both equally brilliant and fully capable of rocking even the squarest honky dance party. Problem is I can never decide which side to play.
