In the liner notes it says the songs are from 2001. But still this album is a gem...the songs have been ressurected remastered, remixed from the Soullife vaults. These songs he recorded while he was on Soul Life records (same as Sunshine Anderson). None of the songs sound outdated or like a sign of the times. However, this album may be better than Comin From Where I'm From on the real. I have played this cd about 6 or 7 times straight through without skipping one song. This album is really soulful and since SoulLife is a band, the album has 'real' feel to it. In the coming weeks I'll decide if it is better than his major debut Comin From Where I'm From...but it's a great album though. I'd give it a 5/5. Almost flawless. Buy that album right now!
