Additional notes:

This is Teena's first independent label release, for her own Sarai records. Unfortunately, due to limited distribution, some people may have missed this album and are now scrambling to get a copy of the now out-of-print CD. Rapper Yo-Yo guest appears on "Sweet on You," rocker Lenny Kravitz is featured on "Main Squeeze," and Lady Levi guests on "Smooth Tip." "Hypnotized" is a cover of the Linda Jones, Loma records classic from 1967.

  • Thanks to Monique Spencer for allowing me to hear this great album, er, I mean CD for the first time!
  • Thanks to Aaron "Tee" A. for contributing the image from the CD single of "Warm as Momma's Oven."
