"In the late summer of 1967, local music entrepreneur E.J. Henke took the Fabulous Five into Jeff Smith's Texas Sound Studio to record two sessions of funky New Breed Soul instrumentals as well as a backing session for Charles Russell's group, The Three Dudes. Still a teenager, Mickey and his father both signed Henke's recording contract. While their recordings with The Three Dudes were released as a single on Henke's Satin Records, the superb instrumentals The Fabulous Five cut during the summer of '67 remained unreleased until now. Relying heavily on the rhythm section, this set of recordings captures the young band crystallizing what would become their signature sound. These early sessions stand alone as a key chapter in the development of one of the greatest, heaviest exponents of funk."
