September 8, 2014


Originally established in the early 70s by Carl Davis in Chicago, Chi Sound Records set out to provide a platform for their local soul talents. This compilation features the essential Chi Sound Records artists, starting off with the signature Chi Sound Theme by Windy City Orchestra setting the tone for a tuneful journey through soul history. Greatest – Chi Sound Records presents the full spectrum between funky slap bass (as in Manchild’s ‘Red Hot Daddy’) and soothing slow ballads: The Impressions declare their love over pompous string carpets, and Walter Jackson tries to seduce us with his spoken word lyrics. Legendary Gene Chandler’s ‘When You’re #1’ is taking it away with smashing trumpets and female backing vocals. A comprehensive selection!
