We've declared our love for Numero Group's Eccentric Soul series numerous times in the past, so we were pretty psyched when our good friend the Aquarium Drunkard sent us the latest installment, which is devoted to Chicago's legendary Twinight label. Eccentric Soul: Twinight's Lunar Rotation is an epic 40-track, double-CD collection that just might be the best (and is certainly the most thorough) Eccentric Soul release yet.
I can't recommend this enough, as it's absolutely loaded with obscure/rare gems that could (and probably should) have been huge hits in the late '60s. I was unfamiliar with Renaldo Domino, but he's well-represented on this compilation, with four ridiculously good songs. Here's one of our favorites:
Renaldo Domino Nevermore (1969)
