Album Notes
JC Brooks is determined to become the next in the long line of classic Chicago Soul singers. Sam Cooke, Curtis Mayfield, Syl Johnson - JC has learned from them all, and he's got no illusions about what it takes to become a classic. Armed with The Uptown Sound, one of the most ferocious bands to ever crawl up out of the windy city, JC's live shows are all-out assaults on the audience employing everything from raw punk to heart-drenched R&B. Guaranteed to make you dance by any means necessary. JC Brooks is the new sound of Chicago.

Burt BiG Daddy Bummer

Rump slapping stuff
Yowza mon ami! This J.C. Brooks is a super soul shouting stud!You can just feel the Motown sisters shaking on their high heels from the clubs to the corner bars! All the way to Windsor even. The writing quality and drum work is impressive here ghetto men. Burt loves to see his voluptuous babe dance to this music...prtety much whenever! Big black soul sisters and skinny white gals will wiggle their buns and booty cakes to this band! Songs 3,5 & 8 are super. J.C.'s vocals are superb. Mixing shows the talents of the band as well. The Bummer gives it 5 bare bottom slaps, 4 red hand prints and 3 wiggly jiggly wobbles for this splendid effort!!
