Review

Although most will associate soul with the Motor City of Detroit, it could be argued that Chicagoan artists played just a big a role in its later development and popularization. This Love Is For Real attempts to tell the story of Chicago's impact on soul, not via the city's best-known artists (Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions, for example), but rather records written, produced and performed by lesser-known Windy City talents. There's naturally much to admire, from the classic sweetness of the Chi-Lites' "(Um, um) My Baby Loves Me" and the Mayfield-esque "Second Story Man" by Chocolate Sunday, to the impassioned bliss of "This Love Is Real" by the Lovelites, and the rock-tinged passion of Windy City's "Just For You".
