and produced by Stevie Wonder, Cameron left The Spinners to pursue a solo career.
It was a trip to Fantasy Studios, San Francisco in 1977, where Cameron teamed
up with Harvey Faqua, Greg Crockett and Elgie Stover to realise what is arguably
his fnest work. A full album was recorded, but only two tracks saw the light of
day, via the short-lived UK label, Flamingo.

previously released on Flamingo - the deep and dubby disco-workout If I Love You
(Instrumental) and soul drenched ballad Live For Love, coupled with two
