If the Trammps were assembled to perform only disco songs, then Where the Happy People Go supports that notion -- in a good way. Every selection here rings with disco. Even though there are no ballads or moderate grooves, the Trammps still come across with some smooth vocals and invigorating rhythms. The first release from this dance album was the melodic "That's Where the Happy People Go." It broke into the Billboard R&B Top 20 at number 12, staying on the charts for 16 weeks. The second single was the busier "Soul Searchin' Time." A bit more rapid than its predecessor, and also more instrumentally involved, it came with a social message. With the exception of one non-vocal track, "Love Is a Funky Thing," everything here is up-tempo disco.
