An album of Old-School Soul with that Chicago early House bump!When Byron Stingily, Byron Burke and Herb Lawson got together to form Ten City in 1985, they created a legendary and revolutionary group. By introducing live music and songwriting into an electronic sound that was then at a nascent stage, they helped set the scene for the development of vocal Chicago house. This compilation presents 10 of Ten City's best tunes from over the years, spanning their early Atlantic years and beyond with massive singles like Devotion (from their debut album Foundation, co-produced with Marshall Jefferson) and evergreen classic That's The Way Love Is which managed to get into the UK top 10. Elsewhere, cuts such as Right Back To You, Whatever Makes You Happy, Deep Kiss, Suspicious, My Peace Of Heaven, All Loved Out and Nothing's Changed all highlight the band's way with arrangements and knack of writing catchy and spiritual tunes. Many of the tracks featured are rare demo versions and extended remixes previously only available on vinyl, and there's a couple of remixes from veterans Joe Claussell and Kerri Chandler that help bring some material up to date. This is a truly essential snapshot of a truly influential band. --Paul Sullivan for
