thank you baby!

Amos Leon Thomas Jr is well known in Jazz circles for, amongst other things, singing on 'The Creator Has a Master Plan' for Pharoah Sanders, as well as with any number of high profile artists like Louis Armstrong, Archie Shepp and even Carlos Santana. He's much less known for his self written and co-produced 1975 Jazz Disco track 'Thank You Baby' on Don Records, released under the name Leone not Leon. Thing is I hadn't heard this bomb until a few days ago and then only on a shitty mp3 (which I'm happy to share with you), it seems the 12" is the one to go for, it's longer and deeper than the more readily available 7', though it could cost you up to 100 quid. What a beast!!! I'm curious, has anyone heard this played out before? Maybe Giles? Check it, add it to the want list...
