Operated by a pair of cutthroat radio promotion men, Chicago’s Twinight label made its strides via “friendola”—the trading of favors, not dollars, for local radio airplay. Much of the outfit’s 56-single output—excepting the work of bona fide hitmaker Syl Johnson—was written and recorded by moonlighting on-air talent eager for a leg up in the Second City’s notoriously crooked record racket. Twinight’s Lunar Rotation spins 40 former tax write-off tracks on 2 CDs—or 54 cuts on 4 LPs—into works of true soul beauty revealed by the light of a new day. After ushering forth previously unknown cuts by Jo Ann Garrett, Renaldo Domino, and the Notations, the sixth entry in Numero’s flagship Eccentric Soul series reads like the who’s who of an unsung Chicago scene, featuring Chuck & Mac, the Dynamic Tints, Annette Poindexter, Nate Evans, the Radiants, the Mystiques, the Kaldirons, Perfections, Mist, Harrison & The Majestic Kind, Schiller Street Gang, George McGregor & the Bronzettes, Josephine Taylor, Krystal Generation, Mist, Velma Perkins, Jimmy Jones, Sidney Pinchback, Stormy, Johnny Williams, Elvin Spencer, Buster Benton, and Pieces Of Peace.
