“Feels like a lost 1966 Atlantic recording.”– Downbeat

“It’s been 50 years since Ural Thomas was opening for Otis Redding and the Rolling Stones, he hasn’t lost an ounce of that fire.” – Afropunk

“Sounds like the force of a pent-up soul career letting loose. Instead of a throwback, we get simply Thomas in the present, something that's easy to dig.” - Pop Matters

If life was at all fair Ural Thomas would be a household name, his music slotted into countless sweet, seductive mixtapes between James Brown, Otis Redding, and Stevie Wonder (all of whom Thomas has performed with.) Straddling the line between hot soul shouter and velvety-smooth crooner, Thomas released a few singles in the late 60’s and early 70’s; most notably “Can You Dig It”, which featured backing vocals from soul luminaries Merry Clayton, Mary Wells and Brenda Holloway. Thomas played over forty shows at the legendary Apollo Theater before turning his back on an unkind business and heading home to Portland, OR in the 70's but this is "The Right Time" and Ural Thomas is here to deliver.
