Inner City Blues

CD (Item 494590) Brunswick, Early 70s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD


4.90 11

Stunning work from one of the greatest vocal groups ever – the mighty mighty Chi-Lites! The group had an amazing run at Brunswick records during the late 60s and early 70s – recording single after single that not only helped redefine the sound of group soul for a new generation, but which also broke down previously held conceptions of sweet soul! This set's something of a "best of" – and titles include "The 12th Of Never", "Love Is", "Trouble's A Comin", "Inner City Blues", "Love Uprising", "Living In The Footsteps Of Another Man", "Go Away Dream", "Yes I'm Ready", "What Do I Wish For", "Ain't Too Much Of Nothin", "The Man & The Woman", and "Let Me Be The Man My Daddy Was".

Brunswick/Edsel (UK), 1975. Used
Nothing half about The Chi-Lites at all – as the group were always tremendous during their famous run at Brunswick Records – able to come across perfectly on mellow ballads and more upbeat numbers! This set is a wonderful illustration of the really unique Chicago-based approach that ... CD

Brunswick/Edsel (UK), Late 60s. Used
2 of the best albums by this legendary funky instrumental combo! Wack Wack is the group's first – recorded after they left Ramsey Lewis, and with a tight jazzy feel that's similar to some of the work they did in his classic trio. The album's got a great groove – and apart from the ... CD

Directions
Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1975. Used
One of the rarest soul records on Brunswick! This one was cut during the mid 70s – when the label was really having some rough times financially, but also was cutting some of its most groundbreaking soul work. The Directions are a tight harmony quintet – equipped, it appears, with ... CD

Mack
Motown, 1973. Used
CD reissue of Willie Hutch's classic score about pimpin' & mackin'! The album (and film) is virtually a handbook for junior grade hoods, and we can remember back around 1990, when the first wave of candy-ass hardcore hip hoppers were coming up, this was sort of a holy grail. And it still ... CD

Alexander O'Neal
Tabu, 1985. Used
The start of a legendary run for vocalist Alexander O'Neal – and a set that really helped redefine the sound of male soul in the 80s! O'Neal got his start in an early version of The Time, and he's working here with Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis – but the sound of the record is way deeper ... CD

All True Man
Tabu, 1991. Used
A classic set from all-true Alexander O'Neal – and maybe one of his last great records for the Tabu label! The set's got a nice balance of groovers and mellower moments – really showing the growing diversity of O'Neal as an artist, as he tries to move away from some of his bigger ... CD
