.....................
**NOTE...
It is interesting to note that titles 7-1598,7-1601
and 7-1605-1606 are not listed so 4 other songs from this session are still out there looking to either be released or to have their tracks matched with the master take number. This session basically comprised a version of the Reborn album which was not released but instead scrapped and later
different songs were picked .
Also the title track for the 1982 release Feelings
album was recorded on this date along with 3 country songs 2 of which would find a home on the Orion Country album in 1980. The others along with 9 tracks that were scrapped from the Reborn album would not be released untill 1999 on the Who Was That Masked Man boxset.

.....................
**NOTE
It should be noted that ORION was not pleased at
all with these gospel tracks due to there not being enough backing for his vocals the Jordinaires had been brought in for some reason or another which still remains a mystery. Singleton was probably seeing how ORION could do with a gospel album when this idea came up but for whatever reason did not
spend the proper amount of money necassary to make this album a classic. It could have been far better, but still there was something there with ORION some hidden charisma that shinned through. This album would not be released however till 1980 and even then no overdubbs had been made on it to improve its overall sound. There was even talk of releasing a single with I BELIEVE & PEACE IN THE VALLEY which could have done well on the gospel charts but this never materialized.
