A good history of Independents recordings. Calling them Discs of Gold, however, is a stretch; most of these cuts didn't go gold. The members were Chuck Jackson (younger brother of civil rights activist Jesse Jackson), Maurice Jackson, Eric Thomas, and sole female Helen Curry. Chuck handles the leads in a smooth baritone, sometimes adding a meandering slow rap to some of the songs, while the group harmonizes like a mini-choir. "Understated" best describes this LP; neither Chuck nor the group ever break loose and let it all hang. Wilson Pickett would have been screaming all over these tracks.
