Even though T.K. Disco label is known for their disco megahits by artists like Anita Ward and George McCrae, just to name a few, there's still some excellent and interesting obscurities existing on their excessive vinyl catalog.

Joe Thomas is better known as a jazz musician playing flute as his main instrument. "Funky Fever" is 11 minutes long jazzy disco funk boogie, with only vocal chorus repeating "I've Got This Funky Funky Fever".

On the flipside to be found is an excellent sleazy jazz funk instrumental boogie "Polarizer". Parts of the track has been sampled by well known rap artist Mos Def.
