In a lot of ways, Chicago is still never really properly processed and healed from the death of Mayor Harold Washington. His energy was inescapable and still remain unconvinced that his death was from natural causes. To help aid with some of the healing process, Albertina Walker, Jerry Butler, and a host of other musicians came together to hold and record a concert celebrating the life and work of Mayor Washington. This eight-song piece of history stands out among the many tributes as it is one of the few that is connected directly to faith communities in Chicago, where Washington drew a sizable portion of his support. It’s very 80’s in sound but also doused in authentic feelings of anguish, celebration, pain, and joy.

This used LP and its sleeve are in mint (M) condition.
