*JUST IN!* Tommy McGee – We Ought To Be Together b/w Make Sure – Jai Alai 7″

15.75

The world of soul music has always been full of stories of bad luck, if-onlys and might-have-beens, and Tommy McGee has certainly had more than his fair share of all three.

Amazingly, McGee had the drive to keep going as he was determined to release an album with his band The TMGs. Writer/producer Palmer James, also from his home town Grand Rapids MI, convinced him to sign as a solo artist instead, although he continued to work on the (then unnamed) “Positive-Negative” album from 1970-72.

McGee finally got the funds to release “Positive-Negative” on his own label MTMG Records in 1976, pressing 500 copies, and whilst not a commercial success, this highly collectable album brought him recognition on the underground Soul scene.

For their third release, Jai Alai have taken the two cream cuts “We Ought To Be Together” and “Make Sure” of this album, showcasing McGee’s production skills and his wonderful Curtis Mayfield styled falsetto vocals.

This limited edition 7” single will quickly disappear, so make sure you don’t miss out.
