Grab that Miami Sound -- most of that stuff is TK, I think.

When I was in Virginia at Christmas, I heard a guy blasting "Dance With Me" so loud in his truck I could hear it through his closed window and my brother's.

They were, but they never recorded for TK.

search: blowfly 'rapp dirty'/'blowfly's rapp'

one time, Friday, 25 January 2008 02:30 (twelve years ago) link

('rapp dirty' is the clean version, confusingly enough)

SEARCH:
- McKinley Mitchell (one real good late '70s soul-blues LP on Chimneyville, dist. by TK)
- Akim (great Xmas 45: "Santa Claus Is A Black Man")
- Timmy Thomas
- Latimore
- Jimmy Bo Horne (particularly parts one and two of "Gimme Some")
- Little Beaver
- Swamp Dogg (two great albums, Gag A Maggot and Swamp Dogg's Greatest Hits on Stone Dogg - dist. by TK)

DESTROY:
- Michael Bloomfield (one of his worst-ever albums came out on a TK subsidiary, Count Talent & The Originals...turned a great Chicago blues guitarist into the prototype for Huey Lewis & the News)

Not just the song, but the album too!

Also search: Timmy's "Sweet Brown Sugar," where he's recording with a full band but STILL insists on using that archaic drum machine!!

timmy invented microhouse so everyone on ilm should own his stuff:

deej, Friday, 25 January 2008 03:00 (twelve years ago) link

scott seward, Friday, 25 January 2008 03:01 (twelve years ago) link

deej, Friday, 25 January 2008 03:04 (twelve years ago) link

i don't think the ilx search works with two letter queries like "TK"

elan, Friday, 25 January 2008 03:46 (twelve years ago) link

google apparently has trouble too

deej, Friday, 25 January 2008 03:48 (twelve years ago) link

I thought this was about defunct Northwest label T/K...

we've done this before! though of course it's always nice to do it again.

Useless trivia: TK also had a subsidiary called Bold Records, which released co-ed Florida pop-punkers The Cichlids' only LP, "Be True To Your School," which I rather like. I don't think I've ever seen another artist on Bold.

Duane & Gregg Allman.

When the Allman Brothers Band were starting to catch on in the early seventies, there were all these "early Allmans" reissues popping up left and right, and one of them was on a TK label - Duane & Gregg Allman, on Bold.

We've mentioned the fact that there were two previous TK threads before!

But, what the hell, the show is on the road, don't turn back now!

Rev. Hoodoo, Friday, 25 January 2008 20:54 (twelve years ago) link

Archie Bell & the Drells did some of their best things for TK subsidiary Glades. No albums, though, but 45's like "Dancing To Your Music" and "Ain't Nothing For A Man In Love" are worth seeking out.

"Oh well, forget this thread then" my ass! :-)

Rev. Hoodoo, Friday, 25 January 2008 20:56 (twelve years ago) link

S: Clarence Reid's Atlantic LP. and the new Numero Deep City 2 comp, with even more great obscure-o Miami shit.
