Tom Glide featuring Timmy Thomas | “Sweet Heaven”

With some four decades in the music business Timmy Thomas has given us golden gems like ‘Why Can’t We Live Together’ (1972), with its memorable stripped-down production of Hammond organ and percussion to his soulful vocal, along with classics under the T.K.Disco label such as ‘Stone To The Bone’ and much more besides, seeing him consistently topping the R&B charts. Here now then, under the umbrella of Tom Glide’s ‘All Stars’, another hit is assured.
With remixes from the likes of the equally prolific talents of UK producers Matt Early and 12 Shades, along with some stunning keyboards by JD 73, this release of ‘Sweet Heaven’, is another vibrant step in the on-going march of Tom Glide and company, here with Markus Kater and Stephen Tucker in Miami (the two guys who made the connection with Timmy Thomas happen)…”
Out on Sonic Wax May 2nd 2013

The lead track set the tones for what was to be expected on his long player  S.O.U.L.
