Notes

This is the first release of the Ricardo Marrero and The Group single "Babalonia" / "My Friend", containing the original, first recorded versions of both tracks (the latter sung by Angela Bofill). After recording these first versions of both songs at Columbia University for the movie "Tecato (Jesus Saves)", Marrero re-recorded both Babalonia and My Friend at Electric Lady Studios, with better sound and both versions slightly different in arrangement and speed than the first recordings. Both versions of each song were released as a 7" single on Yu Qui Yu Records Inc., which Marrero had founded with some associates, and both releases had the same catalog# YQ-101. The re-recorded versions were also released in their unedited version on a Yu Qui Yu Records 7" single (YQ-102). Later, a fourth release of "Babalonia" / "My Friend" happened on the Don King Productions label (DK-101), containing the same re-recorded edited versions as on the second Yu Qui Yu release.
