Liner Notes
PRODUCED BY JAMES SHAW / CARLOS MALCOLM LINER NOTES: EDDIE O'JAY; COVER PHOTO: BILAL FARID; LINER PHOTO: RICHARD WHALEY ART DIRECTION: LEW SYKEN; COORDINATOR: CECIL BRISSETTE; RECORDED : VIRGIN ISLES WHEN AHMAD JAMAL, A LONGTIME FRIEND OF MINE, CALLED AND ASKED ME IF I'D LISTEN TO CARLOS MALCOLM'S NEW RELEASE, AND WRITE THE LINER NOTES FOR THE ALBUM, IT WAS LIKE SOMEONE TELLING ME TO PREPARE FOR A TRIP TO OUTERSPACE ; THAT'S HOW EXCITED I BECAME. MIXED EMOTIONS CREPT IN BECAUSE I KNEW MALCOLM HAD RECORDED ON ANOTHER LABEL. I TOOK THE PRESSING HOME AND PLAYED IT AT INTERVALS FOR TWO DAYS. AFTER AWHILE I BECAME HUNG UP ON SIDE B TRACK 1, "PLAY IT FOR THE WORLD." THEN IT HIT ME LIKE A TORNADO - SIDE A TRACK 1 "BUSTIN' OUTTA THE GHETTO" HAD IN IT WHAT IS NOW - FUNK, UNDERGROUND AND A SLIGHT TASTE OF CALYPSO, MIXED WITH SOME SOFT BUT DEMANDING TO BE HEARD BRASS. AS YOU MOVE YOUR FEET, BODY, OR JUST SNAP YOUR FINGERS TO THE NOW BEAT, YOU NOTICE THE FLAIR OF THE HARMONICA THAT LINGERS. I LATER LEARNED THAT CARLOS A. MALCOLM WAS EDUCATED AT RAINBOW CITY OCCUPATIONAL SCHOOL, CRISTOBAL CANAL ZONE AND CALABAR COLLEGE IN KINGSTON, JAMAICA, WHICH IS WHY THE WEST INDIAN FLAVOR EXISTS THRUOUT THIS MONSTER OF A RECORDING. TRY THIS ALBUM AS AN OPENER FOR THE NEXT PARTY THAT YOU HAVE, AND WATCH THE REACTION OF YOUR GUESTS - THEY'LL DIG IT. EDDIE O'JAY W.L.I.B.
