  • This is the first release of Proverb LP 500, with no mention of Kent Gospel Records. It was probably released in 1968 or 1969. The back cover sais that Cotton “…only three years ago… stepped forth as a soloist…” and that his first recording was “He’s The One”. The song was released on Proverb 1019, probably in 1965-66.
  • The 2nd version (c. 1972) has a different cover and title, plus a few differences in the track listing.
  • The B-side of this album was recorded live.
  • “Look For Me” was released in two parts on Proverb 1029.
