Featured in TIR Episode 292 (2 parts): Keyboardist, composer and producer Danny Thomas, best known as an original and longtime member of Con Funk Shun – one of the most successful, distinctive and flat-out fantastic funk-R&B bands of all time. From 1977’s No. 1 R&B smash “Ffun” to 1986’s No. 8 hit “Burnin’ Love,” the seven-member Northern California group notched 10 Top 25 albums and 17 top 40 singles.
Equally adept at funk, catchy soul and love ballads, other killer tracks included “Chase Me,” “Too Tight,” “Got to Be Enough,” “Shake and Dance With Me,” “(Let Me) Put Love on Your Mind,” “Make It Last,” “Baby, I’m Hooked” and “Love’s Train,” which was recently remade into a hit for Bruno Mars’ act, Silk Sonic. In 2021, Thomas released an autobiography on his career with the band, titled “My Life And Fun Times With Con Funk Shun.”
