Album Notes
Track 1 :The Fuse Pt1
Remastered from Jim Wellman's first release post Brand New Heavies, the 1994 album Crazy Love Songs by Time and Space.
Vibes solo by Roy Ayers, Drums: Dennis Davis, Horns: Mike Smith & Gerard Presencer, Percussion: Lascelle Gordon, Guitar: Keith More, Bass: Donald Nicks, Keyboards, Jim Wellman.

Track 2 Packing Up.
A previously unreleased track.
The chorus was written circa 1985 in a collaboration with New York vocalist Nicole Straun (Then married to alto sax player David Straun in Jim's first London based band).The verses were written and the song developed in 2002 and it was intended to be part of a double album release 'Love not Truth' but following advice from distributors etc, the album was cut to 10 tracks and a follow up album planned for the additional material which never came to fruition.
Vocal: Judy La Rose, Horns: Mike Smith & Gerard Presencer, Guitar: Keith More, Remaining parts: Jim Wellman.

Track 3 Funky Fax.
Another previously unreleased track from 2002.
After the distributor Soul trader ceased trading shortly after the release of the Love Not Truth album (by Postmodern Jazz) ,the album was withdrawn , and a reincarnation of it released through Timewarp in 2006 who then (shortly afterwards) filed for bankruptcy. Following this debacle and the disappointing exposure the project received, Jim shelved plans for the unreleased material. These days, does anyone even know what a fax machine sounded like?
All parts by Jim Wellman

Track 4 Love Not Truth.
Sung by Judy La Rose over a slower mid tempo groove than the released Roy Ayers version, this track is re-mastered from a bonus track mix which was included in the Timewarp 2006 re release of the album.
Vibes Solo: Roy Ayers, Other parts: Jim Wellman

Track 5 The Fool
Previously unreleased track from 2002, all parts by Jim Wellman

Track 6 The Boundaries of Love.
Previously unreleased track from 2002, all parts by Jim Wellman except main vocal by Judy La Rose. Whilst the problems associated with economic migration cannot be denied, this song was written in revulsion to the xenophobic mainstream attitudes to refugees who are mainly created by the western military industrial complex and planned destabilisations in the first place.

Track 7 Another Kind Of Culture.
Re-mastered from the 1994 Crazy Love Songs release. Actually inspired by a Charlie Chaplin composition (It's Love) , from his film Limelight . The chorus was contributed by Roy Ayers in his ad libs. This is a more classic type arrangement for the track than the 2004 remix. To Jim , Postmodern Jazz meant Jazz inspired by postmodernism and a rejection of truths lyrically. However by 2004 Postmodern Jazz had actually become a musical genre accentuating as diverse elements as possible in the production (Bavarian berry pipes over breakbeats anyone?).
Vocals: Judy La Rose & Roy Ayers, Vibes Solo : Roy Ayers, Drums: Demmis Davis, Guitar: Keith More, Bass Donald Nicks, Percussion: Lascelle Gordon, Keyboards, Jim Wellman.

Track 8. Time and Space Theme.
Re-mastered from the 2006 bonus track on the short lived Timewarp release of the album Love not Truth Album (PMJ Allstars). A full on slice of Acid Jazz.
Horns: Mike Smith & Gerard Presencer, Sax Solo: Mike Smith, Guitar solo: Keith More, Keyboard Solo: Robert Carter, Percussion: Lascelle Gordon, Remaining parts: Jim Wellman

Track 9 To Hear Your Love
Remastered second half of the track from the 19994 Time and space album.
Vocals: Mel Nixon, B Vocals: Judy La Rose, Sax Mike Smith Trumpet: Gerard Presencer, Drums: Dennis Davis Keyboards: Jim Wellman

Track 10 Darkness Into Light
Another track re-mastered from the 1994 Time And Space album, given a postmodern jazz (genre) reworking in 2004 on the LNT album, but equally good here in its original classic incarnation.
Vocals Judy La Rose, Drums: Dennis Davis, Percussion: Lascelles Gordon, Guitar: Keith More, Bass: Colin Mackenzie Sax Solo: Mike Smith, Synth Solo: Robert Carter , Keyboards, Jim Wellman & Joe Leach.

Track 11 :The Fuse Pt2
Re worked from the 1994 album Crazy Love Songs by Time and Space.
Drums: Dennis Davis, Soprano Sax Solo: Mike Smith, Percussion: Lascelle Gordon, Guitar Solo: Keith More, Remaining parts: Jim Wellman.
