Numero Group: By The Numbers


Eccentric Soul: The Nickel & Penny Labels… Revealed

Filed under: Newsworthy, Nickel & Penny

Our final release of 2011 is one we’ve been working on for close to five years. Astute readers of our liner notes may remember a section on acclaimed Chicago dusties DJ Richard Pegue in Eccentric Soul: Twinight’s Lunar Rotation. But for those who are more aurally connected to Numero, he’s brilliant arranger and producer on Renaldo Domino’s “Not Too Cool To Cry” and “Nevermore,” the Perfections “Why Do You Want To Make Me Sad” and “Which One Am I,” and Sidney Pinchback’s “Soul Strokes.” As soon as Twinight was done we approached Richard about doing a similar treatment for his Nickel and Penny concerns. He was immediately interested, but then again, Pichard Pegue was interested in everything. He died in the middle of working on this project, but we think he’d be pretty thrilled with the finished product.

Available on November 22nd on 2LP or CD, Eccentric Soul: The Nickel & Penny Labels is our first entry in the Eccentric Soul series in nearly two years, and we know it won’t disappoint. The LPs aren’t expected in until week’s end, but take a look at the CD to see what to expect:

If this is half as good as Twinight’s Lunar Rotation, it’s going to be incredible, what a way to see off 2011!

When can we expect details of 2012 subscriptions?

Comment by Arthur

Is this in the 2011 or 2012 LP subscription? Thanks.

Comment by Tim Simmons

For overseas subscribers will this be sent out with the Boddie boxset?

Comment by Sam Hussain

This will be shipping with Boddie to CD subscribers. The LP version will be the first record of the 2012 subscription.
