The TK Disco reissue series continues with a fine EP of classic cuts from label stalwart Timmy Thomas. This time round, the singer and keyboardist's most famous outing, the fuzzy and impassioned organ jam "Why Can't We Live Together", is relegated to the B-side, with 1977 cut "Africano" taking pride of place on the A. It's something of an overlooked gem, all told; a killer chunk of Clav-happy Afro-funk/Afro-disco fusion full of chanted vocals and Thomas's own killer electric piano flourishes. Also featured on side B is "Funky Me", which was originally featured on the B-side of "Why Can't We Live Together". Equally fuzzy and underpinned by the same sort of clicking drum machine percussion, it naturally features Thomas showing off his impeccable organ skills.
