Love this. 

So sad. One of the most underrated groups that's given us some great records.   Sleep well and  Rest in soulful peace.

"Playgirl's Love" was a big Hit in Chicago hitting #6 on this survey from Sept. 1966

If you check out the link (above in first post) I've created a YT playlist of their complete singles A/B sides (except for one I can't find - 'Every Single Way' (1972 Buddah 45) - If anyone can provide an mp3 of it I'll upload it to YT)

- 51 tracks in total and some fine tunes amongst them especially their Windy C & Curtom  ouput!

Sad news indeed. I think James wrote the music and Clarence Jr wrote the lyrics for their “Pasado” Stairsteps favourite . What a talented family!.
RIP James .Condolences to Keni and the Burke family.

The bizarre meets the mighty... Although I always had my wearies about the pop/prog/intelectual Kama Sutra approach in productions this one stayed in the collection. :)
