Tracks 2, 8, 13, 17, 20, 21 & 22 were recorded by Goldwax but sold to Fame Records when Spencer signed to that label in 1969. Only track 21 was issued on the Fame label (Fame 1463, 1969).

Between October 1969 and early 1971 Spencer recorded nine masters at three different sessions specifically for Fame: tracks 1, 3, 4, 7, 10, 11, 15, 16 & 18.
Track 16 was released in 1969 as Fame 1463 (together with track 21) and tracks 7 & 15 were released in 1970 as Fame 1470.
Tracks 1, 3, 4, 10, 11 & 18 are previously unissued Fame recordings.

Tracks 5, 6, 9, 12, 14 & 19 were recorded for the 'Sounds Of Memphis' label, but only tracks 6 & 12 were released as a single (Sounds Of Memphis 716, 1973).
Tracks 5, 9 & 14 were scheduled for release on the Sounds Of Memphis' XL label, but it seems unlikely that these tracks were ever released.
Track 19 was found in the Sounds Of Memphis vaults.


Duane Allman is suspected to play on tracks 11, 15 & 18, but this has not been confirmed yet.
