ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The music on this Album represents more than the sounds you hear, it represents the relationship between tow men---Myself and Melvin Lastie.
In the late Spring and early Summer of 1970, Melvin and I along with Lowell Jordan embarked spontaneously upon making some music in the Studio. There was no Pre-conceived notion of what the 'CONCEPT' of the album would be, in fact we didn't think we were making and "Album", instead we were just RELAXING.... running from the pressure of the Record Biz to a place where we felt secure and happy.
The relationship between us started in the late 1950s which solidified in 1961 when we formed A.F.O. (All for One) Records. It became evident to me that our thinking and ideas were compatible, our strengths and weaknesses complemented each other. We had similar sociological missions to fulfill and our philosophical differences created the necessary balance to aid both of us in our mission. Through the years our physical bodies have been separated often by miles, time, people, circumstances, and finally by Melvin's death but we have always been and continue to be -- TOGETHER.
Harold R. Battiste
