Notes: 1) Original record album was re-released as an extended CD in 2013 with 7 added tracks. 2) According to web sources French pressings of original vinyl LP carried track 11 as an additional track at the closing of side 2. 3) Tracks 11, 15 are two solo singles by Billy Preston & Syreeta. According to web sources these were originally included in the Billy Preston album “Late At Night” on Motown M7-925R1 (US, 1979) although album duration for track 15 was longer, clocking in at 4:57. Reissue notes indicate these as being Billy Preston solo singles. 4) Tracks 11, 12, 13, 14 were originally included in the soundtrack album of the 1979 Jack Smight motion picture “Fast Break”. 5) Tracks 16, 17 are two solo singles by Syreeta. According to web sources these were originally included in the Syreeta album “Syreeta” on Tamla T7-372R1 (US, 1980). 6) According to web sources, bass players on bonus tracks are as follows: Eddie N. Watkins, Jr. (11, 13), Ray Brown (12), Abe Laboriel (14). 7) In the original album notes, mixing credits for Michael Schuman and Ollie E. Brown are not track-by-track specified. 8) On CD reissue some of the producing and tech credits for bonus tracks are bundled together in a somewhat confusing layout. These have been verified and attributed according to web sources.
