An obscure R&B group from Des Moines, Iowa, Split Decision Band released one single  during their existence. Issued on the local Network label in 1978. The now still sought-after track “Watchin’ Out” still commands a high price amongst collectors on the soul scene. The band centred around Lead vocalist and songwriter Gordon Starr Flipping, whose  collaborations with Prince made him something of a legend in the Mid-West area. Core  member Gordon Starr Flipping was tracked down by Now and Again Records and his  material was released in a self-titled full-length released in 2017.
