1. The sound quality is bad.
2. Not the great versions we fell in love with.
3. Just a lot of crap "wait" for a "true" South Shore Commission Collection.
Hopefully they will release the first album from the Original Master Tape. The original album had good fidelity.

Format: Audio CD
The 1970s Washington, D.C.-based Funk/Disco group The South Shore Commission (Frank McCurry, Sheryl Henry, Sidney Lennear, David Henderson, Warren Haygood and Eugene Rogers) first appeared on record billed as The Southshore Commission in 1969 with Right On Brother - Part 1 b/w Part 2 on Atlantic 2684, and in 1971, now shown as The South Shore Commission, released Shadows b/w This Is The Woman on Nickel 1003. None charted on a national scale.

But after signing in 1975/76 with Wand Records, a label launched in 1961 by Florence Greenberg in association with Scepter Records, they enjoyed modest success, registering these three on the national R&B charts, all of which crossed over to the lower regions of the more lucrative Billboard Pop Hot 100:

Free Man - # 9 R&B/# 61 Hot 100 May-July 1975 b/w a disco mix of the same song - Wand 11287; We're On The Right Track - # 30 R&B/# 94 Hot 100 Nov-Dec 1975 b/w I'd Rather Fight Than Switch - Wand 11291; and Train Called Freedom - # 35 R&B/# 86 Hot 100 Feb-March 1976 b/w a Disco version of the same song - Wand 11294.

They also recorded one LP for the label, the self-titled South Shore Commission (Wand WDS-6100) in 1975 containing: 1. Handle With Care (5:53); 2. Before You're Gone (4:39); 3. I'd Rather Switch Than Fight (3:47); 4. Free Man (7:21); 5. We're On The Right Track (4:50); 6. Just A Matter Of Time (4:36); 7. Train Called Freedom (5:16); 8. Any Day Now (6:16). That is available used through Amazon.com.

The only CD covering their music is the 8-side volume covered here, released in January 1998 by Collectables which provides all 6 sides of their three charting singles.

This CD was very expensive. Wish it wasn't, but I love the CD. Unfortunately, could not find it in any store so I was forced to purchase the high priced CD online.
