Though he didn't become overly well-known until his breakthrough 1986 effort "Introducing Jonathan Butler" (his first complete studio album), Jonathan Butler had been sporadically recording for almost a decade before that, and this compilation album collects some otherwise unreleased tracks that he recorded in the late 70s & early 80s, and like his later works, the songs collected here are all solid examples of the highly-polished smooth jazz and jazz-flavored R&B that would later become his trademark. Every song is solid and enjoyable, especially good are the urban contemporary midtempo jam "You And I" and the funky romp "Do The Boogie."
