The Jazz Crusaders - Old Socks New Shoes New Socks Old Shoes (1970)

The first album from the band that would become, simply, The Crusaders.  Comprised of such talent as Joe Sample, Wayne Henderson, Stix Hooper and Wilton Felder, this is an early release on Chisa which had a distribution deal with Motown worldwide.

The track "Way Back Home" written by Felder, would become a single and popular live track for Jr Walker later.  This includes the Lennon-McCartney "Golden Slumbers", Sly's "Thank You For Lettinme ..." and the standard "Rainy Night In Georgia" - in addition to other originals.  Produced by the late and really great Stewart Levine.

This is a Chisa original (that has seen better days cover-wise) Cat No: CS 804

It is now available on CD on the Verve label (owned by Universal who also own Motown)
Cat No: 0602517654365 (aren't bar coded numbers awful)
