Extra Notes : (by Julian Gill)
While working at Connecticut Recording Studios, Felix was producing an album for former Blood, Sweat, and Tears member Fred Lipsius. A Billboard magazine news item (Billboard 10/2/76) indicated that the album had been mixed in New York in late-1976 and was pending release via Epic/CBS, the same label as Treasure. Fred recalled that Vinnie was a "good 'groove' player, and creative." Unfortunately the Lipsius album was shelved after it was completed due to politics (personnel changes) at the record label (Epic).
Of course, BS&T is of a genre opposite to later style that put Vinnie's name on the public radar; pre-1982 he was in a totally different school of sound. Other than playing, and the ability to play, whatever was necessary to pay the bills, in this case jazz.
This album was cancelled after the mixing stage due to a change in leadership at the record label.
