Chicago. A place celebrated the world over for the talent of its musicians spanning across countless genres of music. You name it---Soul, Funk, Rock, Jazz, Blues, etc. In modern times, Chicago's Dance floors have had a worldwide reputation for House music; it's a sound that has pretty much reached to areas all across the globe. Yet, in the early developmental stages of the Chicago Dance era (mid-late 1970's to early 1980's), there were scores of musicians recording Dance music, hoping to be the next mainstream success story. As it goes, for the artists in this compilation---it didn't quite turn out that way. Budget problems, the politics of the time, being told, "I don't like it", or simply having the door slammed in their face, is what many of these artists were faced with instead. Nevertheless, it cannot be denied that the musicianship that these artists possessed by far equals---even defined---the infinite status of what today's market calls "Good Music".
