"No Way Out" by Clarence Reid

You’ve heard me rave about the Eccentric Soul series from the Numero Group label outta Chicago; well, this record—The Outskirts Of Deep City—is a companion to The Deep City Label.  And while we’re on the subject, why is it so many Soul records so perfectly convey anxiety and apprehension?  Soul can be sexy, Soul can be fun, but more often than not Soul is the soundtrack to troubled times.  Here’s a perfect example of what I’m talking about.
