The recordings of these two albums made in the summer of 1977 were nothing but dust collectors for more then 35 years in the shelves of the legendary Bell Studios, until the initiative of sound-engineer Malcolm Addey finally lead to a release adequate to their quality. Also responsible for the release is the Label Guinness, one of many labels of this decade, who produced records in pretense, only to make profit through tax fraud. Even if a label like A&M Records had taken the case, like with the R&B-high-flyers Atlantic Starr, arising from a similar formation, the success would have been a similar one. With the spiritual freedom of a Sly Stone and the stylistic variety-range of bands like Gonzalez or The Meters, each track reflects an incredible potential. Now – even though more than overdue – this potential is being paid tribute to and proves how quality can brave the ravages of time, in order to sooner or later find its way to the light of day. Despite all potential definitions and agreements on what is good or bad quality, this record shows once and for all that only one thing is important. And it’s not the question of »what?«, but rather a question of »how?«. Every music being played well is good. Newban’s music was desinged to become much more than just a posthumous appreciation in the form of a re-release.
