Rotary Connection: ‘Hey, Love’. Though Chess had been as ready as any other label to embrace psychedelic soul during the mid-60s, company bosses Leonard and Phil Chess still felt they needed to become hipper with America’s hippie youth, and put Leonard’s son, Marshall, in charge of a new imprint, Cadet Concept. Not content with releasing the only US hit by British rock legends Status Quo, Marshall and his label set about creating a new band to pursue a hippie-rock-soul dream, Rotary Connection, a group responsible for many of the best Chess soul outings. Their final album, Hey, Love, on which they were billed as The New Rotary Connection, is their most cohesive. Perhaps they were aware it was their last chance and wanted to go out with a bang. A dazzling mix of rock, folk, jazz and soul, the title track is as good a place to start as any.

As strong as Hey Love is - it's one of Rotary Connection's best records - three of its songs are so rich with full-bloom beauty that you can't help but refer to the group's lack of an adequate single-disc best-of as an extremely unfortunate thing. Minnie Riperton's Her Chess Years, which is dominated by Rotary Connection material, doesn't qualify for its bonkers lack of a couple key songs. Too many people point to the group's self-titled debut as its only essential release, which means that albums like this remain overlooked. And that means that too many. The rest of the album ranges from fair to good, with a slight edge to the good. That's almost irrelevant, however, given the essential nature of the three aforementioned diamonds.
