    Includes the original versions remastered, all the collectible 7"s, and several unreleased tunes. This is the only complete album of recordings from one of the funkiest bands of all time! This 9-member group from Detroit is widely known for their gritty funk sound. Here you will find unreleased versions of their known and unreleased tunes, including warm-up sessions and alternate takes found in the band leaders basement.To say these young musicians were proficient beyond their years would be an understatement. At the time this album was recorded, the oldest member was 17 year-old bandleader Clarence Bennett; guitarist Mark Justice was just 15. Nonetheless, their talent and musical maturity earned them the praise and respect of more widely recognized artists and groups (including the Temptations, O'Jays, Chi-Lites, and Stevie Wonder).
