The Kashmere Stage Band's collected works is presented as a gatefold, 2LP package and as a 2CD/DVD package. Each collection contains a series of rare, heavy soul, funk and jazz recorded by the Houston, Texas high school heavyweights Kashmere Stage Band under the tutelage of the great Conrad O. Johnson.

NPR wrote: "Kashmere High School... spawned a sensation that's still drawing listeners some 40 years later.... Nt only one of the nation's best stage bands, but one of the best funk bands - period."

LP contains 18 tracks, all studio recordings, and is packaged as a gatefold with liner notes and photos on the interior panels.

The CD and DVD package contains a wealth more of material - those 18 studio recordings, and 14 recordings of  live and alternate takes.

The DVD contains:

• “Texas Jewels: The Making of Texas Thunder Soul” (2010) - a short film by B+ and Flying Lotus.

• “Kashmere Stage Band on Jazz: Yesterday, Today, Forever”  - an appearance of the Band captured for Houston Spiritual Jazz maven Bubbha Thomas on his TV program.

• “Prof. and his Band: A Documentary by Charles Porter” (early 1970s).
