Tommy McGee

Best known for his Rare killer 45 double header 'Now That I Have You/Stay With Me'.

Like many of his ilk frought with challenges and bad luck Tommy McGee was not detered from his ambition 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’s second single, "Give & Take" / "To Make You Happy" on Golden Voice Records, was lost with the down fall of the parent label.

McGee finally got the funds to release "Positive-Negative" on his own label MTMG Records in 1976, pressing only 500 copies, and whilst not a commercial success, this highly collectable album brought him recognition on the underground soul scene. It was reissued on Chicago imprint Numero Group in 2016.

For their third release, Jai Alai have taken the two cream cuts "We Ought To Be Together" and "Make Sure" released on 45 for the first time,
