Tamiko Jones more then just Can't Live Without Your Love
Barbara Tamiko Ferguson was born in Kyle, West Virginia in 1945. She started recording in the mid sixties. By the late 70's she had a few floor stompers of disco dance.
1976's Let if Flow was a major release for T.K. but in 1979 Polydor's Can't Live Without Your Love was the one that made her disco legendary. It's a real Loft classic. It always sounds great to me. CAN'T LIVE Her release from 1975 I'm Spell Bound is much less known but well worth checking out I'm Spell Bound
Her 1986 remake of Marvin Gaye's classic I Want You was also known as Tamiko's Groove. It was mixed by Timmy Regisford & Merlin Bobb and it's just about the last I've heard from her. Tamiko's Groove
