Description by OLDIES.com:

It's time New Birth had a rebirth in popularity. The group was marvelously skillful as singers, players, writers, and producers of other composers'material. The two albums collected here were big hits in the mid-'70s - "Comin'From All Ends" featured two hit singles ("I Wash My Hands of The Whole Damn Deal" and "Comin'From All Ends"); their Buddah debut, "Blind Baby" went Top 20 and turned gold.
