Numero words:

Astute readers of our liner notes may remember a section on acclaimed Chicago dusties DJ Richard Pegue in Eccentric Soul: Twinight's Lunar Rotation. But for those who are more aurally connected to Numero, he's brilliant arranger and producer on Renaldo Domino's "Not Too Cool To Cry" and "Nevermore," the Perfections "Why Do You Want To Make Me Sad" and "Which One Am I," and Sidney Pinchback's "Soul Strokes."

As soon as Twinight was done we approached Richard about doing a similar treatment for his Nickel and Penny concerns. He was immediately interested, but then again, Pichard Pegue was interested in everything. He died in the middle of working on this project, but we think he'd be pretty thrilled with the finished product.

Available on November 22nd on 2LP or CD, Eccentric Soul: The Nickel & Penny Labels is our first entry in the Eccentric Soul series in nearly two years, and we know it won't disappoint. The LPs aren't expected in until week's end, but take a look at the CD to see what to expect:

Clip of background info from Numero site

Chicago's Richard Pegue was one of the most intriguing figures to come out of the Chicago soul scene in the 1960's and 1970's. 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.

I love Richard Pegue's Penny/Nickel cuts. Are there a lot of previously unreleased cuts on this CD?
