***Chicago’s RICHARD PEGUE was one of the most intriguing figures to come out of the Chicago soul scene in the 1960s and 1970s. Raised during the city’s fertile Doo-wop era, Pegue immersed himself in music immediately. He cut his chops as a mobile dj, record store clerk and recording artist before stepping into the booth as one of Chicago’s most enduring radio personalities to grace the city’s airwaves. The Nickel and Penny labels featured in this compilation are twin sides of the same eccentric coin, Pegue himself. He was the writer, arranger and producer of some of the most beautiful Chicago soul records in the ’60s and ’70s; too bad they all went out of print weeks after being released. On order here are rare sides by JERRY TOWNES, THE VOICES, THE NORVELLS, LITTLE BEN & THE CHEERS, SOUTH SHORE COMMISSION, JOYCE WILLIAMS, THE HALLELUJAH CHORUS, BROTHES & SISTERS, and more. These 24 tracks tell Pegue’s epic tale, from dedicated music producer, to DJ making corny radio jingles that usurped the tens of thousands of air-time hours the songs included here so richly deserved.
