A massive tribute to one of our favorite soul singers of all time – one of the hippest cats of the 70s, and an artist that we never tire of hearing! Leroy Hutson
got his start working with Chicago soul legends Donny Hathaway and Curtis Mayfield, but he quickly became a strong force on his own – a singer with an incredible voice, an arranger with a fantastic vision, and a producer who was able to create sounds in the studio that were as sophisticated as they were soulful! In that respect, Leroy
is right up there with Roy Ayers for the "whole package" of greatness – and like Roy, he can also be funky and open up a groove, while still bringing plenty to play on a mellow cut too – something that few other artists can do this well. And although we grew up in Chicago, it wasn't until 80s UK rare groove interest in Hutson
that we really learned of his genius – which makes it all the more fitting that this UK set does such a great job of presenting his music. The set features 19 stellar tracks in all – with titles that include "Positive Forces", "Lucky Fellow", "Don't It Make You Feel Good", "Love The Feeling", "Love Oh Love", "Think I'm Falling In Love", "Right Or Wrong", "Closer To The Source", "Cool Out", "All Because Of You (single version)", "Never Know What You Can Do", "Love The Feeling", "So In Love With You", "Lover's Holiday", "Get To This", and "Time Brings On A Change".
