"Dap Walk" was written and produced by Ernie Vincent Williams, who performs under the stage name Ernie Vincent. Dap Walk was the first song ever recorded by Mr. Williams' band, Ernie And The Top Notes. "Dap Walk" was recorded at Cosimo Studio in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1972. The song was released as a 45. The flip side of the 45 was "Things Are Better," a funk tune that was also written and produced by Mr. Williams.

Ernie and the Top Notes later changed its name to Ernie Vincent and the Top Notes. Mr. Williams lives in New Orleans, Louisiana, where he regularly performs with Ernie and The Top Notes.

It actually wasn't out of Richmond, California. Eugene only put that down. It really was still out of Oakland where it originated. This cat named Leroy had the label for years and had been putting out artists on it. True he had a space between Sea and Side and had put out mostly RandB and Blues acts like Tommy Harris and The Blazers. Eugene took the name and used it as his own but Leroy owned it still.

Marilyn Barbarin still sings in her hometown of New Orleans today. Although "Reborn" is rare, perhaps the rarest of her records is a Northern soul record "Make it Alone" with "Stop Before You Start" on the Virgil label, which was arranged by Wardell Quezerque. Barbarin also recorded for the famed NOLA label and is perhaps the most successful member of the famous Barbarin family.

Written by Edwin J Bocage. 2:20 in length, produced (of course) by Eddie Bo. The flipside is "Believe Me".
