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 (which some consider somewhat dubious) of being the one and only team to have started their recording career behind bars! Any discussion of the seven-man group has inevitably focused on that fact but beyond the circumstances of their recording situation (at Rahway prison in New Jersey), The Escorts' work actually merits considerable acclaim and praise. Listening to their 1973-74 recordings, it's evident that The Escorts - aided by renowned producer George Kerr - made some fine music. Featured here is their soulful take on two pop chestnuts; O.C. Smith's huge hit "Little Green Apples" and Jimmy Webb's "By the Time I Get to Phoenix." Newly remastered. [Note: This product is an authorized CD-R and is manufactured on demand]
