1975 FUNK outing from Chicago, grooves cut deep, Tower of Power and Funkadelic likely influences but this is its own animal, and considering this band and those bands were putting out material at the same time it's hard to say who influenced who, Chitown influenced Oakland, and Oakland influenced Chitown as this set shows, this coming out of Stax, Sly Stone, and even the faster side of Chicago blues, pure 1975 and more looking back than say fellow Chitowners EWF were doing at the same time, the synthesizer coming through sometimes to date the songs, but this mostly sounds more like 1971, electric guitars helping give this some rock leanings, not that far from the deep funk of Ohio, Isley Brothers or Ohio Players of the early 1970s, but this has a distinct Southside feel, punched home with the brass-knuckled horn charts, some mid-tempo waterbed grooves and plenty of funk to knock you over. -- winch 

"Southside Movement beats Eric Kloss.  Offense wins games, defense wins championships, and funk band versatility beats tenor consistency. Every time. Eric will get lots of chances to work it all the way out on my turntable; this loss is nothing to be ashamed of. It’s just that Southside’s got sweaty dancefloor burners, midtempo housecleaning  burners, and a couple of late-night makeout songs. Extra points awarded for including a song called “Can You Get to That” that is blessedly not a cover. I only need one version of perfection."  Wax Poetics
