Boogie Classic Dreamin' by Greg Henderson

This song to me is beyond description.  I just love it so much up and down and sideways.  10 out of 10 doesn't give it justice.  It's so cheery.  If you happen to have the original pressing on Rain records then you own a very valuable record.  I only had the pressing that got picked up by Sam records.  A favorite label of mine with many releases that I enjoyed so much in the late 70's and early 80's.  Dreamin' by Greg Henderson was one of very few releases by this artist.  I'd love to know what happened to him.

Here's a more recent edit called the ColeCo edit.  I won't comment since what can you really do with perfection?  a recent edit and another recent edit.
This gem from 1982 has not gone unrecognized.  It was featured on this fun compilation on Harmless records released in 2009.  Soul Steppin' Listing on Discogs.com
While you're over there on Discogs.com you can check out my wares under seller names ExpatMichael and 12inchVinyl4eva.  What's Michael selling on Discogs.com?
The follow-up also on Rain records was released in 1984.  It remains hard to find because it never got picked up by a major.  It's a bit more on the funky tip and features vocals by Rome Jeffries, Never Too Late.  Jeffries also had another hot rare release on Rain in 1983 called Good Love. NEVER TOO LATE
