This is a very interesting recording. It is one of Neil Young’s earliest bands and features Rick James (yes that Rick James on vocals.) They were signed to Motown Records and what we have here is the beginnings of what would have been their first record, but Rick James got busted for draft dodging and the record got shelved.

  1. Fantastic! Thanks so much. I have been looking for these tracks forever. FYI, the versions of “It’s My Time” and “Go On and Cry” that were released in 2006 on the “Complete Motown Singles Vol. 6: 1966” box set sound somewhat differently-mixed than these versions, though they must be derived from the same recordings.
