As you may have read over at, our next mainline release will honor a historical recording session that occurred at Virginia’s Powhatan Correctional Facility on September 14th, 1979. Only half of the incarcerated members of Edge Of Daybreak were even aware it was nearly showtime when faculty from Alpha Audio in Richmond arrived at the prison gates for the Eyes Of Love recording session. In just five hurried hours, the band set up and knocked down each of their eight original compositions in one, miraculous take. The resulting LP, Eyes Of Loveis a touching collection of earnest R&B, recorded under the most unfortunate of circumstances.

In its original incarnation (rare as hen’s teeth, FYI), very few concrete facts are conveyed regarding the group’s circumstances. “Our bodies are in prison,” the jacket reads, “but we want our hearts and minds to be with the free world. As you might expect,” Numero’s expansive liner notes touch on each of Edge Of Daybreak’s five principal contributors, detailing their journey from the hollows and metropolises of Virginia to the big house. Never-before-seen photographs (like the one above) accompany this fascinating story of the Virginia Correctional System’s most unlikely breakouts. You can preorder by clicking the album jacket below. Eyes Of Love will be available everywhere October 16th, 2015.
