Eccentric Soul Revue featuring Renaldo Domino, Linda Balintine, Notations, Syl Johnson, Sharon Clark, and Pastor TL Barrett Critic's Choice Early Warnings (Music) Recommended Soundboard

When: Sat., Nov. 7, 9 p.m. 2009

Last seen in a glorious Park West performance in April, the Eccentric Soul Revue—a good old-fashioned package bill that Chicago's Numero Group has put together to showcase just a few of the many performers whose music it has rescued from oblivion and stunningly repackaged for its Eccentric Soul series—is kicking off a brief tour at the new Lincoln Hall before stops in Pontiac, Columbus, D.C., Pittsburgh, New York, and Philly. The lineup's slightly different for each city, featuring performances from acts representative of each town. While I'm jealous New York will get to see Missy Dee perform the early-80s disco rap featured on Numero's triple LP Don't Stop: Recording Tap, Chicago's in for what promise to be stellar performances from Pastor TL Barrett and his choir, who appear on the upcoming Good God! Born Again Funk (available early at these shows); Sharon Clark, featured on Young Disciples, a comp of late-60s East Saint Louis soul that came out of a youth community center; and Chicago native Linda Balintine, who was just 16 when she recorded for Bandit, a south-side label run by the infamous Arrow Brown, subject of the 2005 Reader cover story "The Godfather of King Drive." Headliners from April's revue also return for most shows, including Chicago: Renaldo Domino, the Notations, and Syl Johnson, all backed by JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound. —Brian Costello
