8.”Groovy Little Thing” (1985)

beres groovy little thing

This record is a Jamaican favorite, sort of a yard version of The Commodores’ “Easy (Like Sunday Morning)”. It is cool and understated, in the way most Al Green tracks areโ€”the musicians are tearing it up, but are tempered in the mixโ€”while Beres diligently phrases 100% raw soul between the easy groove. Sly Dunbar actually invented a new riddim pattern here which has withstood the test of time. Just try playing it without tapping your feet or rockin’ some part of your body. Thought so!
