Notes

Issued in a gatefold sleeve with a printed inner sleeve with pictures and liner notes.

Liner notes were written in May 2009 and below is some useful information printed:
This release was made possible after the people at Numero Group found some original tapes decaying in Bruce Thompson's basement below the South side of Chicago, while hunting for a 45 produced by Thompson. Out of the 20 tracks found, only those 6 hadn't flaked off their reels. Some of them all were written by Warren as far back as 1965. A3 was issued in 1968 and produced under the name Bobbie Dee, which was one of Robert Dunson's pseudonym.

Timing per track is not showing on release, retrieved using a stopwatch.

Recorded from late 1974 to 1975 at Universal Studios, Chicago.

Mastered at Peerless Mastering.

All selections copyright control, except A3 published by Bridgeport Music / Tincal Music (BMI), A4 published by Stone Agate Music (BMI) & A5 published by Irving Music (BMI).

Thanks to Bob Abrahamian, Rob Bowman, Dante Carfagna, Bill Dahl, Ray Foreman and Craig & Stasa Warren.

    Picked this up for 20 bucks via local shop, used. Sounds fantastic. I've heard this album digitally but on vinyl this is even better. Just clear sounding soul. Buy it if you see it. Numero has been putting out good finds for years.

      Astonishing release, 10 out of 10 from Numero, quality all the way.

        Fine pressing (better than Povert. Paradise - Stax pressing), best inner sleeve I have ever received (besides a Japanese pressing)...Too bad this is not a gatefold with linear notes on the inside cover, instead of the sheet included. Definitely one of the most underrated bands ever! Sad this is all we know of...
