Ruby Andrews "Gotta Breakaway" 45
A nice 45 from the prolific Ruby Andrews. "Gotta Breakaway" is a standard love song, but with an interesting arrangement. The flipside is the killer.
"You Ole Boo Boo You" is a slow burning funk monster. Slow down the "Freddie's Dead" groove and add in a harmonica and drum molasses breakdown and you've got the making of an unstoppable track. When the organ and strings kick in, it just pushes it over the top. Imagine "It's your thing" on 33.
