CHITLIN CIRCUIT SOUL is a unique collection of contemporary blues jazz, and it is something to enjoy. I have listened to it five times prior to reviewing it, and I would suggest it as a special gift for any listener who enjoys contemporary blues jazz.
It is 16 selections of excellence. It reminds me of my first visit to a blues bar when I was very young, and the sound and blues jazz motifs brought back some pleasant memories. This is an A+ collection.
Here is the cast in this remarkable and memorable blues jazz collection: Bobby Bland on "Members Only," Johnnie Taylor on "Cheaper To Keep Her," Clarence Carter on "Strokin,'" Ronnie Lovejoy on "Still Wasn't Me," Shirley Brown on "Woman To Woman," Tyrone Davis on "Turning Point," Bobby Rush on "Sue," Wilson Meadows on "That's Still My Love," Little Milton on "Walking The Back Streets And Crying," Millie Jackson on "If You're Not Back In Love By Monday," Sterling Harrison & The New Breed on "There's A Rat Loose In My House," Z. Z. Hill on "Love Is So Good When You're Stealing It," Latimore on "Let's Straighten It Out," Carl Sims on "I'm Trapped," Marvin Sease on "Stuck In The Middle," and Betty Wright on "Tonight Is The Night." If you have never heard Clarence Carter sing "Strokin," or Tyrone Davis sing "Turning Point," or Millie Jackson on "If You're Not Back In Love By Monday," this is a fine opportunity to hear them on this CD. If you enjoy listening to contemporary blues jazz, CHITLIN CIRCUIT SOUL is the collection to own! Congratulations to Rhino Records for making this collection possible for the jazz listening audience. CHITLIN CIRCUIT SOUL is a winner!
