"Sweet soul sounds from the more obscure side of Chicago. We're all familiar with artists like Curtis Mayfield, The Chi-Lites and the Impressions, but the Windy City has much more to offer with its rich musical history. This Love Is For Real - Sweet Soul Of Chicago 1968-81 brings to light some of the oft overlooked artists that contributed to the city's soul scene. The sounds range from the doo-wop infused "Warm Summer Nights" of The Stimulators to the Otis Leavill produced funk of Windy City's "Just For You." Leroy Hutson, Willie Henderson and Eugene Record pop up on writing, arrangement, and production duties throughout the release, further cementing the depth of Chicago's soul scene. Fourteen tracks in all."
