The album 'Ghetto: Misfortune's Wealth' is seen as 24-Carat Black's first and final chapter, barely a footnote in the well-documented history of Stax. This set, 'Gone: The Promises Of Yesterday', features 6 tracks. These were recorded in the first half of the '70s and meant for a second LP which never saw the light of day due to the label's financial problems and some rumblings within the band's line up. This collection is by no means a sequel. Missing are the poignant and bleak sermons, replaced by dusky, sensuous and druggy re-workings of love songs that mastermind Dale Warren had written as far back as 1965. The band's creative force Warren was an arranger who started out at Motown in the '60s. From the late '60s throughout the early '70s he composed the majority of string scores for the soul artists on Stax Records, arranging for such artists as Billy Eckstine, Eddie Floyd, Isaac Hayes, Albert King and the Staple Singers. (In fact, the title track, 'Gone: The Promises Of Yesterday', also appears on the Mad Lads' surprisingly psychedelic 'A New Beginning'-LP, produced and arranged by Warren in 1973.) This awesome Numero Records vinyl title of never before issued 24-Carat Black material is pressed on 150 gram vinyl and presented in an embossed gatefold sleeve. Sensational! (By the way - The members of 24-Carat Black would later turn up in the group Shotgun.)

Also available: GONE: THE PROMISES OF YESTERDAY (CD).
