Notes

In 1980, the 9th Creation began working on new music at a Modesto studio, South East of Stockton. The studio was suspiciously cheaper than all of its competitors. After recording weeks of material, the band discovered the reason. “We didn’t know that the guys that were running the studio were drug dealers,” A.D. Burrise recalls. “There was a big raid.” All the studio’s master tapes were confiscated by the DEA. J.D Burrise unsuccessfully sued the DEA to recover the tapes. Luckily Mike Micenheimer saved cassette mix-downs of some of the group’s songs from those sessions. “A Step Ahead” is the the 9th Creation’s lost album.

    I am quite surprised that no one noticed the BIG difference between the version of "A step ahead" on this LP and the version available on 45 https://www.discogs.com/fr/release/1659504-9th-Creation-Mellow-Music... It is not just an alternative mix but a totally resung, reorchestrated and rearranged version. The 45 track has a rawer feel, with prominent slapping bass ; LP track is more polished and features undeniably more melodious vocals, but remains very very funky thanks to its fabulous synth work. Both versions are great to my taste !
