Some Notes about the album:

  • Tracks 1-5 are alternate versions of tracks I made (See Albums: "Can't Stop, Won't Stop" and "We Can Do This")

  • You might notice "Reminisce" has the same beat as "Chillin in Da Hut". At the time I put Reminisce together, I thought Chillin in Da Hut was long gone. Once I found the master to Chillin in Da Hut, I remixed Reminisce and put that version on "Can't Stop, Won't Stop".

  • Tracks 6-11 are the original demo versions of some Solka tracks.

  • Tracks 12-16 are Live Demos. These were done in one take. The Lyrics are live, and the scratching (if any) is live. These were done before I had bought a 4-track.

  • You might also notice ABC Style from Jay Chill is using a sample that was also used in Solka's "Ichiyaya" (See the "We Can Do This" Album), This was a situation where I knew Jay and I would never record ABC Style for real, so I used it in the Solka track.

  • Shoutout to John Rigatuso for coming up with the idea for Track 17 and introducing me to A Christmas Story.

  • **** Tracks 18-21 are bonus tracks!! They aren't listed here, but you can check them out if you download the full album.. (it's free!!)
