Liner Notes
THE FIRST TIME I SAW THE NEW BIRTH WAS ON A TV SHOW AND I REMEMBER THINKING "WOW, THEY ARE REALLY A SUPER TALENTED GROUP." SO WHEN ASKED TO DO THE LINER NOTES FOR THIS ALBUM, I REALLY FELT HONORED BECAUSE THE NEW BIRTH IS A GROUP THAT HAS ALWAYS STOOD OUT IN MY MIND AS ONE OF THE FINEST TALENTS AROUND. BUT WHAT DO YOU SAY ABOUT A GROUP THAT DAZZLES THEIR AUDIENCES WITH THEIR SUPERB SINGING TALENTS? WHAT DO YOU SAY ABOUT A GROUP WHOSE ON STAGE SHOWMANSHIP IS UNPARALLELED? WHAT DO YOU SAY ABOUT A GROUP WHOSE RECORD HITS HAVE PROVEN THEM TO RANK AMONG THE BEST IN THE SHOW BUSINESS WORLD? THE THING YOU CAN SAY (AND PASS THE WORD AROUND) IS TO GO OUT AND GET THE NEW BIRTH, LISTEN TO THE NEW BIRTH, GROOVE WITH THE NEW BIRTH AND YOU'LL FIND YOURSELF PRESENT AT THE BIRTH OF MUSIC THAT WILL REALLY GROW ON YOU. GET WITH A GROUP WHOSE GET-DOWN STYLE REALLY GETS IT ON! SONNY TAYLOR PROGRAM DIRECTOR WGRT RADIO
