Global Progression
This album was actually Arthur Baker's work from start to finish. In an interview he stated Tom's brother Jerry requested the master tapes from him, then Tom could be able to re-mix every track in favor to mix them out by Tom Moulton's vision. As to Baker, he didn't get any credits on the album's label but on the other hand I hope he got his royalty, at least.

it would be an all time favourite of mine if someone could remove the horrible whistle sound ruining the song. what was on their mind?

A classic disco album with some very enduring tracks, this is a project effectively split between Boston and Philadelphia. Apparently, Tom Moulton was being courted by Neil Bogart at the Casablanca label to release something under his own name, despite the fact that he was not a producer nor conductor. This album started as a slew of unfinished Boston disco productions by Arthur Baker and many of the local crew he worked with (Wedgeworth, Gholson, Carbone, Presto-- the last two were involved with North End with Baker). These productions were purchased for Moulton to finish later at the famed Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia. Under Moulton these were finished with some of the in-house Philly International players adding to the tracks. Interestingly Baker was not credited as a producer, but Moulton was, despite this the record shows a strong Boston imprint from the credits. With a house remix and several modern reissues, you can see that this project, for however complicated the backstory, yielded significant results.
