Product Notes

The Harptones AND A VARIETY OF FRIENDS THIS ALBUM WAS PRODUCED BY BCJ PRODUCTIONS IN ASSOCIATION WITH The Harptones, TO SHOWCASE THE TALENTS OF MANY ARTISTS WHO HAVE (TO COIN A PHRASE) 'PAID THEIR DUES'. SONG # 1--SKY HIGH 4:23 WAS WRITTEN BY BILLY DAWN SMITH. THE SONG WAS RECORDED OVER 25 YEARS AGO BY The Harptones BUT NEVER RELEASED. THE SESSION WAS PRODUCED BY The Harptones AND RAOUL J. CITA WHO DID THE ARRANGEMENTS AND KEYBOARD. Publisher: Dawnton Music SONG#2--COCAINE 4:22 WAS WRITTEN BY FRANK D. MURPHY AND RECORDED BY FRANK DELL AND THE NEW YORK CONNECTION. THIS GROUP HAS PERFORMED FOR MANY YEARS ALONG THE EAST COAST, BUT NEVER ACHIEVED THE POPULARITY THAT A HIT RECORD COULD BRING. FRANK IS AN ACCOMPLISHED WRITER AS WELL AS PERFORMER. Publisher: Gothel Music SONG #3--ONLY YOU AND I KNOW 4:40 WAS WRITTEN BY TEDDY COLANDER AND PERFORMED BY TEDDY COLANDER AND PERFECTION. THE GROUP DOES AN OUTSTANDING JOB IN THE BACKGROUND AS TEDDY GIVES A WONDERFUL PERFORMANCE AS LEAD VOCAL. Publisher: Dawnton Music SONG #4--PROMISES IN THE DARK 4:54 WAS WRITTEN BY BILLY DAWN SMITH AND PERFORMED BY 'TREAT'. THIS SONG WAS RECORDED MANY YEARS AGO, BUT NOT RELEASED. BILLY DAWN SMITH WAS ABLE TO FIND MANY SUCH TUNES THAT APPEARED TO BE LOST. Publisher: Dawnton Music SONG #5--WE GOT LOVE 3:40 WAS WRITTEN BY MABEL KING (OF 'WHAT'S HAPPENING FAME') AND RAOUL J. CITA. THE ARTIST IS THE LATE 'BIG ERNIE THOMAS, WHO PASSED IN OCTOBER OF 20002, SHORTLY AFTER THE RELEASE OF HIS FIRST ALBUM ON BCJ PROD, OF WHICH THIS RECORDING HAS BEEN TAKEN. ERNIE SINGS WITH GUSTO AND PLAYS ALL HIS SAX SOLOS. HE IS ALSO A VERY GOOD SONG WRITER, AND TEACHES SAXOPHONE. Publisher: Karen & Cita Music. SONG #6--I JUST WANT TO KNOW 3:45 WAS WRITTEN BY AVA STOREY WEDDINGTON, AND SHE IS THE LEAD VOICE ON THIS SELECTION ALONG WITH 'KLASS GENERATION', A VOCAL TRIO CONSISTING ALSO OF KAREN STARR JOHNSON AND RAOUL J. CITA. RAOUL AND KAREN ARE ALSO PROLIFIC WRITERS AND ARRANGERS. Publisher: Karen & Cita Music SONG #7--EMBRACEABLE YOU 3:12 WAS WRITTEN BY THE LEGENDARY GEORGE AND IRA GERSHWIN AND RECORDED BY PAT STOVALL AND RAOUL J. CITA AKA 'PAT AND ROY'. THIS IS TAKEN FROM THE FUTURE DEBUT ALBUM, SOON TO BE RELEASED ON BCJ PROD. Publisher: Warner Bros. Music Corp. SONG#8--RHONDA 3:34 WAS WRITTEN BY AL BROWNE AND PERFORMED BY RONNIE AND THE EXCELLENTS. THE LATE AL BROWNE WAS A GREAT BAND LEADER AND WRITER, PRODUCER, AND ARRANGER FOR MANY ARTISTS FOR DECADES. ALTHOUGH RONNIE IS NO LONGER WITH US, HIS GROUP STILL PERFORMS TODAY. Publisher: Al Browne Music. SONG #9--I BELIEVE IN YOU 2:28 WAS WRITTEN BY WILLIAM JAMES AND HANK JERNIGAN OF The Harptones, AND PERFORMED 'THE SOOTHERS' AKA The Harptones WITHOUT THEIR LEAD VOICE 'WILLIE WINFIELD'. IT IS THE ONLY OCCASION THAT The Harptones RECORDED UNDER ANOTHER NAME. ALTHOUGH THERE ARE MANY WHO HAVE PUT OUT RECORDINGS WITH The Harptones NAME ON IT. Publisher: Benell Music/Sitma Music.
