from a collection I've had since 2000 , containing one of my most sought out early soul/funk acts
Vanguards as well as many many other fantastic grooves
I have never been able to find any info on this not to mention I had to create some coverart for it.
sadly there are several tracks missing , not sure if I ddin't grab em all, lost some , or just got short changed what ever the case..
Soulbrotha, Arkane & myself have been in conversation about it and it seems as if the crew is in on the hunt,,,shit we got our own Indiana Jones search goin on here!
without further ado....
I share with you what I have
, I've spent a few hrs on this already so I'm not gonna even take anymore time writing up a tracklist
get it ,,,and enjoy!

you can thank me later...
