    Stunning alternative versions of this classic funky soulful Miami monster reissued by Athens Of The North! This is the first time these versions have been available of vinyl and CD ever!! Features the rare groove classic "Keep It Up"! Milton Wright joined by his sister (Betty) and the Alston in-house crew of Willie Clarke, Latimore, etc. 

    Shelved at the last minute then re-recorded and overdubbed, only a few promo copies of this early version escaped from the studio and are deep in the collections of the very few previously in the know.


    The master tapes burnt in a fire at T.K Disco in Miami in the early 80s so even the label has not heard this in 30 Years. Many reissues of the second version of Friends & Buddies LP have come and gone, but Milton's original vision has remained hidden until now. A soulful masterpiece!
