Notes

Cover is a gatefold with credits and this note:

My purpose for making BACK UP THIS TRAIN was to recapture the happy dance groove I experienced in the 70's. It was then that the catchy rhythmic patterns enhanced the horn licks in complimentary form.

Careful planning was necessary to emulate this sound. I needed specific ingredients to accomplish this feat. Louis "Red" Morgan, leader of the Funk Generals, has a most unique approach to his saxophone playing. Fred Kemp, horn arranger extraordinaire and band leader for Fats Domino, was essential for this accomplishment. Mark Braud, on trumpet, provided the exact horn licks I was looking for.

With the combined talents, we were able to create a pocket fusion of impeccable strength - a rhythmic gumbo. Simply put, this rhythm section is top of the line. I know the Funk Generals will be in greater demand after your EARGASMIC experience of BACK UP THIS TRAIN.
