V/A - The Real Sound Of Chicago (BBE)

Not a 303 or a drum machine in sight, this is a celebration of underground Chicago music before the house revolution. Put together by Mark Grusane and Mike Cole of the Chicago based Mr. Peabody Records store, this wonderful compilation explores the discoid, soulful and jazzied dimensions of Chi-town in the 70s and early 80s. Disc 1 winners include Lajohn & Sheela’s teary eyed Too Far Gone and Ghalib Ghallab’s nostalgia laced School Days (Mr. Peabody‘s Edit). Disc 2 winners include The Moore Brothers’ triumphant Bass Come Back and Cold T‘s key driven Funky Preacher (Mr. Peabody‘s Edit). The Real Sound Of Chicago is a collection of dusty musical treats.
