“Thinkin’ Bout Cha” (Bringing Forth) / “You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine”
Label: Izipho Soul Records
Catalogue Number: ZP95
Release Date: 26th January 2024
Legendary Chicago group The Lost Generation rebranded at the turn of the new millennium as The New Lost Generation, the lead track from their self titled album yielded “Thinkin’ Bout Cha”- an anthem on the Chicago Stepper scene and much admired by those in the know on the Modern Soul scene. The album version was over 12 minutes long – Now 7-inch friendly, we present The “Bringing Forth” Edit by Philip Ward who has weaved his magic, reconstructing the song and bringing forward Fred Simon’s spoken part to the intro, whilst including extra vocal acrobatic segments from lead vocalist Charles Jackson.
On the flip is an unreleased version of the classic song “You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine” No need for comparisons to the original – lead singer Mike Jones delivers a superb vocal over the classy production and sophisticated arrangement.
