Barry Records (1967-1968)



Thelma Jones (1978)


Thelma Jones’ first brilliant album, released on Columbia in 1978, produced by Bert DeCoteaux with the addition of the Brad Shapiro-produced classic “Salty Tears.” Thelma’s soulful vocals are incredible — very much in a traditional R&B mode; includes the first-ever U.S. liner notes by David Nathan. Two bonus cuts on this CD debut of this amazing album.

Close To The Ground (1999)


Close To The Ground is a Soul flavored album produced by Miss Thelma herself that features a powerful version of Midnight Train To Georgia and a hauntingly beautiful rendition of The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.

Law Of Old (2002)


A blues-flavored album that features top class L.A. musicians and showcases Thelma’s distinctive vocal style and includes one of her own compositions, the superb title cut.


Second Chance: The Complete Barry! & Columbia Recordings (2007)

The complete 1960s and 1970s recordings of this recently rediscovered and reappraised Soul diva. Includes the UK turntable hit “Salty Tears”, the original version of Aretha Franklin’s “The House That Jack Built” and much more.
