T.K. Disco is one of the disco power house labels, if you have spent any time at all collecting old dance 12"s then you would have come across one of their releases on almost every excursion. They put out records by just about everyone in genres from funk to pop rock, and on occasion tasted billboard top 10 success. They were out of Miami and above is a picture taken in the distribution warehouse beneath the then main recording studio. A storied and well documented label.
T.K. put out a lot of shit in it's time, but when you had the volume of output that they did that could be expected, but the main thing is that they also put out a lot of heat, including amongst them some moderate rarities.
Here are some of my T.K. favorites, including some popular four to the floor, some psych funk and some r'n'b, all from master tape:
Quartz - Beyond the Clouds
Johnny Harris - Odyssey
Herman Kelly & Life - Dance to the Drummer's Beat
Uncle Louie - Full Tilt Boogie
Paul Lewis - Girl, You Need a Change of Mind
Tempest Trio - Love Machine
