Timmy Thomas - Why Can't We Live Together

Timmy Thomas - Why Can't We Live Together on WLCY Radio
"Why Can't We Live Together" is a song by Timmy Thomas from the album Why Can't We Live Together. The song is notable for its sparse, stripped-down production, which featured only a Hammond organ, percussion from an early rhythm machine and Thomas's passionate, soulful vocal. Thomas first sang it as an improvised number on his own nightclub, the "Denisse Lounge". Afterwards, as the audience loved it, with the help of his employees, he did write it. So, Timmy recorded a demo at Dukoff Recording Studios in North Miami, Florida, with Bill Borkan acting as sound engineer. The single short version got more airplay, because the longer instrumental Coda, was considered by many radio stations, to be more closer to Jazz.
