The Real Sound of Chicago

The good people over at BBE records recently released another great compilation, this time of lost disco gems from the forgotten vaults of The Windy City. The new compilation, titled The Real Sound Of Chicago, was compiled by Mr. Peabody Records. This compilation mostly consists of hard-to-find tracks from Chicago disco/ boogie/ early house artists and labels that never got much attention on the national level. Some of my personal favorites consists of Sidney Thomas's "Look, Let's Make Love (And See If You Like It)", Premonition's "Your Love Is In The Pocket", and Lonnie Givens's "Running To A Disco" among others. Overall with this fabulous collection of rare Chicago based music, BBE puts together another fine compilation worth snatching up.

I have to respectfully disagree with the comment above. The Sidney Thomas track alone, makes this a great comp!
