Arielle Castillo writes a very nice article on the WLRN website today, May 31, 2013. She picks out seven great tracks from Henry Stone’s TK Disco in the 1970s.
“Not only did Miami have a disco sound — one influenced heavily, unsurprisingly, by Latin percussion and funk — the city had a full-on disco music industry going. That came courtesy of Henry Stone and the labels under his TK Records umbrella, all becoming so influential that HistoryMiami is now creating a special collection devoted to it.
Miami New Times reported fully on the new project last week, when they announced the creation of the Henry Stone Collection. HistoryMiami, after all, is taking over the larger Miami Art Museum space when the art museum moves to the forthcoming Museum Park. That means more room for exhibits and archival collections about relatively recent history.”
From 1946 to 2014, Henry Stone ruled the Florida music industry with an iron fist, a brick of cash, and a warehouse full of vinyl. HSM is the last of over one hundred record labels he personally founded. This record label includes works from every decade in his sixty-five year career right up until today. Licensing available for film, samples, advertising, movies, video games, and more. Family owned and operated.
