    Traveling Light

    This is a hot track! Anyone have any idea when it was recorded and the producer?

    I've had it on a bootleg for some years. I've always assumed it was among the last of Jean's recordings as a Supreme but never received backing vocals. Just an assumption. The sound seems more 1973 than 70 or 71. No idea who produced it.

    Traveling Light sounds like a Norm Whitfield production
    Aint Nobody straight was produced by Freddie Perren

    wonder what all Frank worked on them with in 73? I know Love Train.

    As for Stevie, I've never heard of TL in the short list of songs he did with them. not to say there aren't more but i've only heard of BW, Soft Days, I'll Wait A Lifetime. that last one is the best, really excellent. It's popped up a few times on Youtube, only to be taken down quickly. was able to download the audio once

    there are a few more "unknown" producer tracks:

    Steppin on a dream
    Mind body and soul
    remote control
    can't you hear me knocking
    how long has that evening train been gone
    you gotta pay the price
    if you let me baby [[although with the MW anthology & booklet we should get the recording info on this one! )

    I'll be surprised to find that "Remote Control" isn't a Frank Wilson tune.

    Unless you're referring to a different recording, YOU'VE GOT TO PAY THE PRICE was produced by Al Kent and released on A CELLARFUL OF MOTOWN, VOL.2.

    To my ears, it sounds like something from the Webb session. The horns remind me of those used on Cheap Lovin' and there are a few high notes Jean's straining to reach, which is a hallmark of the Webb album.

    "Remote Control" was produced by Hal Davis.

    "Steppin' On A Dream" likely was produced by Henry Cosby as he co-wrote it and he usually produced songs he wrote.

    "Send Him To Me" and "If You Let Me Baby" were Deke Richards productions.

    The intro certainly sounds like Norman.
