Liner Notes
FROM THE STREETS, SLUMS, SUBWAYS ------- ON THE CORNERS OF ANY TOWN, LITTLE TOWNS AND BIG CITIES. U.S.A. ---- YOU SEE THEM-------- LOCAL, VOCAL GROUPS. GATHERED, CLUSTERED, HUDDLED ------- SINGING TOGETHER --- HARMONIZING, VOCALIZING ---- THEIR DREAMS AND HOPES OF MUSICAL SUCCESS FILLING. SUSTAINING, AND MOTIVATING THEM. WILL THEY BE THE ONES TO BREAK OUT OF THE MOLD??? WILL LADY LUCK FAVOR "THEM" WITH HER FICKLE AND SELDOM SMILE??? ------ OH GOD, HOW THEY HOPE SO! THERE ARE LITERALLY MILLIONS OF THESE GROUPS SCATTERED THROUGH-OUT THE UNITED STATES. BLACK IVORY WAS ONE OF THE LUCKY ONES; NOT ONLY DID THEY BREAK OUT OF THE MOLD; BUT LADY LUCK, INSTEAD OF A SMILE, GAVE THEM A GREAT BIG GRIN. SHE TOOK THEM FROM NEW YORK'S GHETTO WHERE THEY HAD BEEN STRUGGLING, WORKING, AND LEARNING FOR 2 YEARS...AND UNBELIEVABLY, GRANTED THEM A HIT WITH THEIR FIRST SINGLE "DON'T TURN AROUND". THESE 3 YOUNG MEN (AVERAGE AGE 17) ARE ALL GOOD-LOOKING AND ARE STILL IN SCHOOL. THEIR FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT AND MANY OF THEIR DREAMS HARE ALREADY BEEN REALIZED. THEIR COLLECTIVE MESSAGE TO THE MILLIONS OF GROUPS WHO ARE OUT THERE STILL STRUGGLING: KEEP WORKING. BELIEVE IN YOURSELVES...AND, "DON'T TURN AROUND"
