A treasure trove of rare soul work from Tommy McGee
– a fantastic sweet soul singer from the Michigan scene of the 70s, and one who should have been huge – judging by the quality of the work on this set! The core of the package is Tommy
's rare 1976 album Positive Negative – a record that feels like some of the best All-Platinum/
Stang New Jersey soul of the period – laidback, but with an edge – mellow, but slowly funky too – with Tommy
's sweet vocals at the core of the whole thing, cascading gently around some really well-penned tunes! The set also includes a range of rare singles, too – some with Tommy
in the lead, some by his TMGs band – a wonderful mix of rare Michigan funk and soul, all handled with the usual rock-solid Numero Group presentation. Titles include "What Can I Do", "Aggravation", "Give & Take", "The Hatch", "Now That I Have You", "Stay With Me", "Come On", "To Make You Happy", "Make Sure", "Take Me Home", "Guilty", and "We Ought To Be Together".
