Artist manager, music promoter, label executive, owner/partner of record companies, all speak to the legacy created by the legendary Chicago record man Eddie Thomas. As manager of Curtis Mayfield & the Impressions and co-founder of Curtom Records (with Mayfield), Eddie promoted their careers & hit records, as well as the music of many other artists from Ray Charles to the Bee Gees. In addition, as owner of Thomas Associates, he was responsible for guiding the career of the Independents (“Leaving Me”), and represented many labels as clients and promoted many records that became hits.  Eddie handled all of the Stylistics’ releases, Barry White’s singles and albums as well as the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. The list goes on and on for Eddie as his legacy has now stretched across eight decades.  The knowledge and experiences he has will be a boost to any budding record person, artist or just a plain old listener of great music.
