                                 Release Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Another great old Reuben Wilson release for you.  These are all soul-jazz 
instrumentals.  Wilson often found himself catalogued as a soul-jazz artist, 
but his releases out of this period definitely capture the funk and soul mood 
of the late 60s and early 70s.  They'll be right at home in this group.  Great 
stuff for your lawn and yacht parties next summer.  You'll dig this if you 
always liked old instrumentals.

This originated from a lossless audio stream rip from a Tidal music service 
subscription of mine.  The stream was CD quality, according to Tidal service.  
Rip was done using an Asus Xonar DG sound card.  Wave editor was Cool Edit Pro 
using 48k/16 bit settings.  No other alterations were performed, other than 
what follows. 

I totally silenced any system noise between tracks with the editor.  The track 
timings will be fairly close to match that of the original release, but they 
are by no means perfect.  Tracks are tagged and I have info in the comments 
section about the source and .wav gathering, just to keep the digital gene pool 
organized.  If possible I'll try to include some artwork with it.

Here's my way of paying it forward after leeching more stuff than I can count 
from the binaries over the years.  This is a fun old release that deserves to 
be dug up again, just for shits and grins.  Enjoy it if you grab it - mm

The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 3 stars and 
stated "With songs like this, there's no question that Wilson is going for a 
wide audience, and while these smooth, funky grooves will do nothing for jazz 
purists, it's an entertaining record, and some of the grooves are quite hot 
indeed".
