This is the second release of Ricardo Marrero and The Group’s "Babalonia" / "My Friend", containing re-recorded versions of both Babalonia and My Friend (the latter sung by Angela Bofill). After recording the original, first versions of both songs at Columbia University for the movie "Tecato (Jesus Saves)", Marrero re-recorded both Babalonia and My Friend at Electric Lady Studios, with better sound and both versions slightly different in arrangement and speed than the first recordings. Both versions of each song were released as a 7" single on the Yu Qui Yu Records Inc. label, which Marrero had founded with some associates, and both releases had the same catalog# (YQ-101). The re-recorded versions were also released in their unedited version as a Yu Qui Yu 7" single (YQ-102). A fourth release of "Babalonia" / "My Friend" happened on the Don King Productions label (DK-101), containing the re-recorded edited versions of the 2nd Yu Qui Yu release.
