Brighter Side of Darkness had a pure, untainted, unmistakable Chicago urban sound. Although the sound was polished with lush horn and string arrangements, it still retained a deep soulfulness and sincerity in vocals, and innocence in lyrical content. These are high school love songs delivered without that sugary pop feel. But, the record buying public (myself included) in the early 1970's had already developed a strong "Love Jones" for another inner city boy group, originally from Gary, that moved to the studios of Detroit. I am so glad that this hard to find album has been released on CD. No longer do I have to miss the other side of of urban boy groups' soul singing.
I would recommend this to a friend
