Format: Audio CD
this album is money, and for that matter this whole eccentric soul series is money. i got two of these discs so far, the other being the deep soul label (also terrific). singer neko case highly recommended the big mack label in a recent ny times article. i'm definitely getting the rest of the series asap. as for the bandit label... the opening track, 'one more time around' is butter...there's some 7 year old kid, i think i remember reading that he was 7, but he's something special. basically, there isn't a bad track and if you enjoy old soul music, that really rich, gritty soul -- these discs are 100% for you. bravo and kudos to the numero group label for getting these out!

Another mind-blowing, head-spinning compilation or rare soul tracks, plucked from obscurity (and maybe a trash bin or two) by the Numero Group. If you have enjoyed the other excellent soul compilations that Numero has reissued, you'll want to hear this one too. It's another real treat. Read this first paragraph from the liner notes in the booklet and tell me you aren't intrigued:

"It could almost be fiction. The house passing as a home, the harem passing as a family, the rising star brutally murdered in his prime, the dream, the con; the end. Arrow Brown inhabited the same south side Chicago landscape as Afro-Noir author Iceberg Slim's ghetto characters ... Most of the people involved in the dozen or so records that his tiny Chicago imprint released between 1969 and 1981 have either died, disappeared, or both. Those who survived try not to spend much time thinking about the music they made at 4114 South Martin Luther King Drive, or the man who ruled their lives with an iron fist."

That man, Arrow Brown, was indeed a musical dictator of sorts, but also a very talented one. He wrote and produced all the songs on this impressive CD. No exact dates are given for these recordings, except for a few notes in the booklet that tell you a certain record came out in 1969, or a few were made in 1972 or 1973. Certainly, the bulk of these songs were recorded in the early 70s when Brown had the money to keep putting out records. But as with most small companies, the Bandit label had difficulty getting both airplay and their records in stores, especially outside the Chicago area. And of course there was some bad luck. One of the singers that Brown produced in 1972, Johnny Davis, "was brutally murdered, thrown headfirst from a balcony, and stuffed into a trash incinerator" in 1973.
