He worked with the owner of the Sound of Soul label, Mr. Alexander Randolph, for the songs "I'm Still Hurt"; "Baby Can not You See"; "I'm Hurt"; "Lov'H" and more ... Forty eight years have passed since their initial release, during which time record collectors the world over have chased down virtually every known copy for love of the “Baby Can't You See.” One of the most sought after records in Northern Soul circles, used copies consistently change hands for well over a thousand dollars. With all that being said, the record is noteworthy for more than just its steadfast demand.
Following his time with Sound of Soul, Little Tommy AKA Tyrone Thomas worked with legendary producer Swamp Dogg to record the album Wolfmoon, and then recorded with The Whole Darn Family, whose “Seven Minutes of Funk” was sampled by Grandmaster Flash, Kurtis Blow, EPMD, Jay-Z, and more. Providing the tremendous backing tracks for its songs are The Upsetters. They started out as Little Richard's backing band before branching out to become one of the most well known backing bands on the Chittlin' Circuit. In addition, they were one of the early groups with which Jimi Hendrix honed his craft.
