Liner Notes:
The original plans were to release the two LP's of this album under the titles "Solus" (A1 to A3, B4, C4 to D2) and "The Inner Source" (A4 to B3, C1 to C3, D3, D4) seperately. Therefore, the producer had prepared two types of liner notes. By request of George Duke we have combined the titles of both productions.
