"I don't know why people keep thinking this is the original version of "Native New Yorker" because it's NOT. This is the 12" version of "Native New Yorker." From what I can remember, the original album version started out with a solo saxophone introduction which eventually led into the main song. It was a very short 5- or 10-second sax intro that led into the beginning of the song that is included on this album. I have the original LP and it's there plain as day, just FYI. The LP I have says "For Promotion Only" stamped in gold on the back. I sure wish the original LP was available on CD with the following songs:
Native New Yorker
Ever Lovin' Sam
You Keep Me Dancin'
The Woman Behind The Man
Easy Come Easy Go
Hold De Mota Down
Thank you God For One More Day

"How come no one has yet noticed that the wonderful track "michael has golden hands" is missing from every compilation? what happened to the original album cover with the lovely womans profile, wearing the beaded cornrows....."
Wish I could go back

"I wish that I could have heard the songs here, I ordered 3 CD's , The Best of Change, Dr. Buzzard's, and The Best of Odyessy. The songs I remember most are "Inside Out" & "Don"t tell me you tell Her", SERIOUS TRACKS!. I remember listening to WBLS & WRKS- KISS, cleaning the house or waiting for them to played at a house party. However my quest was cut short because when the CD arrived it was completly blank, so I asked for a replacement, and alas that CD was also blank. I will attempt to purchase it elsewhere because THAT group was the TRUTH!!!!! Not a Native New Yorker but a PROUD SISTER FROM BRICK CITY!Native New Yorker"
