Chicago Gypsy Soul

Soul music from Chicago and Nicola Di Bari's "Il cuore è uno zingaro" head today's list. The Chicagoans — by birth, adoption or residence — don't all share the exact same 'sound', but you can definitely hear a consistent difference from the Detroit based soul of the period. This is usually attributed to the harder, blues influenced, feel of the bigger city's music scene. And, unsurprisingly, that's true of many tracks emanating from Chess Records. The year 1964? Nothing special about it and no unifying element in the English language list, either.
