Released in 1976, Changin’ Times was an extraordinary album recorded in extraordinary circumstances. The artist, Ike White, was a musical prodigy who was in prison since the age of 19, serving life for murder. Produced by legendary music producer Jerry Goldstein, the album became Ike’s ticket to freedom. But, on the cusp of stardom, Ike slipped out of the limelight, changed his name and disappeared. This is his story.
