Synopsis

Album Description
Of all the sweet and satin-voiced groups to grace the R&B charts in the early to mid-'70s, the Escorts have one distinction of being the one and only group to have started their recording career behind bars! These 20 tracks recorded between 1973-74 at Rahway Prison in New Jersey represent their best work. We?ve meticulously re-mastered these gems from the original source tapes and have digitally restored the original photographs to make this set the definitive collection of this stellar group. We've included extensive liner notes by legendary R&B historian David Nathan as an added bonus.
