Although Mississippi-born Ernie Hines made his first recordings in Chicago for the USA label, it was when he returned south that he was signed to Stax's We Produce label by Al Bell. He recorded this one album for the We Produce label under the supervision of Tom Nixon, who was then producing Rufus Thomas' big dance hits. The musicians on the record include the MGs, the Bar- Kays, the Malaco Rhythm Section and the Movement, Isaacs Hayes backing band. The album is today sought after for the funky 'Our Generation' which was sampled by Pete Rock on his classic golden era hip hop cut 'Let's Straighten It Out'. This may give a false impression of the album, which overall is a classic of Southern soul, from the outstanding cover of 'A Change Is Gonna Come' to the spine-tingling title track.
