One for the OVO experts

Should the Pontiac single be the one played at the OVO nights as it was our before the UA release. 

The one pictured below is my copy

During the wrap up, all the singers would enter and Jim would provide the 'ad lib' fills to inspire America to recall the comercial and then rush out and buy pontiacs. At the session, my client asked Jim if he could ad lib something over the middle section about what it would feel like to be free, or to be set free or break away. What you hear is his first and only ad lib reading. After he had finished, completely bowling over everyone in the booth, my client was seized with the desire to script and improve upon Jim's ad lib. But of course, the performance we used was the first one, because it was the best and most honest.

He also composed several music scores for motion pictures during the 1960s, and performed briefly as a Calypso singer, achieving some recognition in Trinidad during that time. Karmen is the recipient of 16 Clio Awards.

OVO was never meant to not include national and foreign releases.  Its just others making things up as they go along.  

There are no sayings that are needed except no bootlegs, the rest are just for idiots.
