2009 digitally remastered two-fer from the Jazz Fusion great featuring the 1979 album A Song For The Children joined by the classic Exotic Mysteries album which features 'Space Princess', a Lonnie Liston Smith masterpiece. A Song For The Children features seven Jazz fusion masterpieces including the title track which can only be described as more Disco than Jazz but it really worked and is now one of Lonnie's standards along with 'Expansions' and 'Space Princess'. The album Exotic Mysteries, as Lonnie points out on the sleeve notes, was one of his personal favorites to record and an album where he discovered a young 16 year old Marcus Miller, who wrote several songs for the album, and Lonnie knew he would be a star.

During this time, while Smith fully engaged the dance music sounds of the day (disco), he never employed them wholesale, which he has sometimes been accused of. As driven as he was by the union of funk and jazz - since his days with Miles Davis some years earlier and continuing with his phenomenal band, the Cosmic Echoes - that would haven been impossible. Instead, he was creating a blueprint for the smooth jazz and quiet storm phenomena as they are heard today. Over three years, Smith folded many sounds into his mix that did include funk, disco, jazz, and even easy listening, without ever giving up the instrumental and arrangement muscle that established his reputation.
