Notes

A-side was featured on People LP: Damn Right I Am Somebody but this is a different recording. More tighter.
B-side is also previously unreleased version.
Both tracks were recorded in 1973.

This is a recent release and was not released during the labels active days.
This release shares the same Cat# as the official 1972 issue, People release: Fred Wesley & The JB's - Everybody Plays The Fool / Use Me (PE 616)

Colleting since 30 years, I don't know anybody who has ever seen the official release PE616 including "use me". It looks like it was intended to be releaed but never did. It was released on Polydor with 2-3 different label-numbers in France and other European countries.

In addition to Mr Bounce's review - the version of 'Mind Power' here is the 'alternate take' issued on the 'Make It Funky: 1971-1975' collection rather than the original 10 minute+ version on the 'The Payback' LP.

'Blow Your Head' is also a different mix from the original released on the 'Damn Right I Am Somebody' LP. This single is the same version issued on 'Funky People Volume 3'; from the liner notes of that CD it states that this more stripped down version is closer to Fred Wesley's original arrangement (before the synth was added).
