Abstract:

Pruter, the rhythm and blues editor for Goldmine magazine, examines the rise and fall of commercial R and B or soul music in Chicago during the 1960s and 1970s. He discusses the various record companies and performers who made Chicago one of the centers of black music in the country. Starting with the larger companies, including Vee Jay, Okeh, and Chess, Pruter proceeds to cover scores of smaller labels, many short-lived, such as Formal, Nike, Crash, and Penny. He also discusses performers, from Jerry Butler and Curtis Mayfield to the most obscure. Along the way, he compares soft to hard soul, and notes the importance of dance. ISBN 0-252-01676-9: $39.95.
