Description by

New Birth was a talented group that had hits under three different names - The Nite-Liters; Love, Peace & Happiness; and New Birth, which was later billed as New Birth, Inc. Their history may be complicated but their music was not. They performed to-the-point Rhythm and Blues, featuring a strong mix of talented vocalists and instrumental prowess. The two albums collected on this disc are from 1973 and 1974 and feature their Top 10 hits, "I Can Understand It", "It's Been A Long Time", as well as "Until It's Time For You To Go."
