T Magazine on the ‘Light: On the Southside’ 2LP/Book about 70's-era Southside Chicago

*Late pass....*

 

"It was a fateful night in 1974 when a skinny white kid slunk into Pepper’s Hide Out on Chicago’s South Side, took one look at all that Superfly exuberance — fake fur, shag, Schlitz, Kools, signs for something called Original Pimp Oil — and bolted. “Hey!” shouted one of the patrons. “Get back in here.” Michael L. Abramson, that skinny white kid, would spend the next few years photographing the throbbing soul scene at Pepper’s and other area clubs. His best pictures are collected in “Light: On the South Side,” a volume from the Numero Group. It comes with two LP’s full of funky blues, but the baddest bonus is the appendix, which contains period fliers for a “bump-a-thon,” a “wine drinking contest” (courtesy of the Sexy Mamas and their Mack) and a “Le Spank,” featuring the “shake dancers” Janice and Mr. Bertha Butt."
