New Birth were one of those 70s soul groups that could do it all – sweet ballads, pop soul, and funkier numbers that went over the top with the full force of the larger group behind them! This tight little 18 track compilation focuses on those funkier numbers – most of which were recorded with assistance from the Nite Liters
, who were part of the larger New Birth collective headed up by Harvey Fuqua – and in fact, a number of tunes on the CD were actually first issued under the Nite Liters
' name, and not that of New Birth. Tracks are a mix of vocals and instrumentals – with titles that include "Lonely Room", "Serenade For A Jive Turkey", "I'm Back", "I Can Understand It", "Down
& Dirty", "One Way Bus", "Con Funk Shun", "Never Can Say Goodbye", "Do The Granny", "Damn", "I've Got Dreams To Remember", and "Theme From Buck & The Preacher".
