Originally released in 1978.

"The re-editor of these club classics went uncredited when 'Night Grooves' was released in late '78 and 23 years later the tape boxes aren't doing much talking - but it's highly likely that they were assembled by, or under the supervision of, Phil Kaffel. A staff member at the Fantasy empire, Keffel had already overseen re-edits and remixes." [from liner notes]

Musicians in main credits are members of The Blackbyrds, those in tracks credits are guest musicians.
