Various Artists Eccentric Soul: Twinight's Lunar Rotation
- Words: Daniel Siwek
- Label: Numero Group
Most of the tracks on this double disc-'60s and '70s sould/funk jams from Twinight (sometimes called "Twilight") Records-didn't get play until after the midnight hour, hence the title Lunar Rotation. The graveyard shift is where coulda-been hits usually go to die, but now this Chi-town outfit's output has been resurrected by the reissue-happy Numero Group. It appears that maybe artists like Renaldo Domino, with his Smokey Robinson-like smoothness, and Chuck & Mac, whose urgent and pungent "Powerful Love" got me laid, were just too real for radio, making Eccentric Soul a most welcome release.
