Can't Live Without Your Love

Last night I found myself dusting off and enjoying, for the first time in awhile, one of my all-time favorite twelve-inches in Tamiko Jones' disco classic "Can't Live Without Your Love". This funky gem from 1979 was supposedly a regular favorite at The Loft and the Paradise Garage, among probably many others during the late 1970 and early 80's. The track was produced by one of disco's many seasoned veterans in Randy Muller, who was an active player in Brass Construction and Skyy as well as many Salsoul releases. Overall, the two, Tamiko Jones with the helping of Muller, successfully produced one of the genres best later day classics.

Thanks Trag, it's always great to hear from someone who has first hand knowledge of the Garage!

I'm unfortunitely too young to have actually experienced the legendary club.

...I'm still putting my hopes on a time machine.

No, I'm not gay. I'm actually married to my beautiful wife, Stacy, which you can find over at http://laboudoirblog.blogspot.com/. A great fashion blog!

That being said, she thinks I look gay too...
