In the song "Sir Duke" by Stevie Wonder,
one of the line goes "you can tell right away at the letter A, when people start to move",
what does "at the letter A" mean? In the context of the lyrics,
Does it mean "from the get-go? from the jump?"

You also need to take the previous line in to get the full context:
Just because a record has a groove
Don't make it it the groove
So Sir Duke is talking about from the top of the piece (the A section) you can tell if the piece is the groove.
