Legendary Record Promoter Eddie ET Thomas discusses his role in the mercurial rise of some of the recording industry’s greatest R&B and Pop Artists. What an OUTSTANDING video as Eddie takes you on a journey of how the music industry once worked. I LOVED this video and I have always wondered what it would have been like to work on the record side. Radio from the 80s on up has been boring as hell as we all know. The Hitmaker: Eddie ET Thomas from Clarence McMillan on Vimeo.
