CLASSIC CHICAGO SOUL
southcentraldiva | LOS (SOUTH CENTRAL) ANGELES | 03/14/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"ONE OF THE PREIMERE SOUL GROUPS HAILING FROM CHICAGO DURING THE MID 60'S. OVERSHADOWED BY THE MOTOWN MACHINERY; PUMPING OUT SUCH SUPER GROUPS; LIKE THE TEMPTATIONS, THE FOUR TOPS AND SMOKEY ROBINSON & THE MIRCALES...THE ARTISTICS MADE A LITTLE RIPPLE IN THE WATER. HOWEVER, WITH THE MOTOWN SOUND & THE STAX SOUND..THE CHICAGO SOUND SEEMED TO REACH ITS PEAK WITH OTHER CHICAGO GROUPS LIKE; THE DELLS AND THE IMPRESSIONS. GIVE A LISTEN TO "GIRL I NEED YOU" OR "GLAD I MET YOU" THE ARTISTICS HAD THE GOODS. I BELIEVE THEIR LACK OF LUSTER WAS DUE IN PART TO, POOR PROMOTION AND AIR PLAY. MOTOWN WAS KING OF PROMOTION IN THE R&B MARKET. FOOTNOTE...DID YOU KNOW THE ARTISTICS USE TO RECORD FOR MOTOWN. CKECK OUT; "THIS HEART OF MINE""
Great Unsung Group From Chi-town

"Finally, a CD of Artistics sides. Since I wore out the vinyl albums these songs first appeared on this CD is greatly appreciated. It's nice to hear a good vocal group singing to good rhythm tracks and not much else. The sparseness makes their soulful vocal blend stand out even more. A few of the songs do have strings including the standard "With These Hands" and the Chi-lites sounding "Just Another Heartache" which Chi-lite lead singer Eugene Record wrote with Barbara "Love Makes A Woman" Acklin. If some of the Artistics Okeh sides had been included this would be a five star special."
