This is the Big Dig, the Tutankhamen of R&B: Twinight. After two years of interviews, cold calls, storage spaces, half truths, unknowns, and dead ends, we’ve finally completed a large piece of Chicago’s secret soul history. Eccentric Soul: Twinight’s Lunar Rotation takes a look beyond their hit maker Syl Johnson, and instead focuses on the records that never had a shot at the charts. It’s the story of struggling disc jockeys moonlighting as producers, high school talent show winners, major label cast offs, minor label upgrades, girlfriends with decent voices, and master purchases traded for chart position. This comprehensive 2CD/4LP set includes a complete label history, a bakers dozen of unpublished photos and three unreleased tracks, including two that were only rumored to exist. Our Twinight email extravaganza doesn’t end there. Not with these 3 lb Lunar Rotation 4LP box sets taking up our entire front room anyway. You read that poorly structured sentence right, Eccentric Soul: Twinight’s Lunar Rotation has finally been released on vinyl in our most deluxe package yet. Even if you own 013 on CD, you’ll probably want to pick up the box just to make your friends drool. Here’s the skinny: About the vinyl: Four high quality 150 gram LPs inserted into four gorgeous heavy sleeves and housed in a slip box with a spine wide enough to read from across the room. While the CD boasted a mere 40 tracks, we’ve expanded the LP edition to include 53 tracks! A Twinight lovers wet dream if there ever was one.
