Limited red colored vinyl LP pressing. Scandalously scarce Southern soul, originally released on the extremely rare R&R label back in 1976 and currently selling for hundreds of dollars! Shackin' Up was the only LP released by well-traveled soul man Chuck Armstrong, who also recorded for such imprints as Nashville's Sound Stage 7, Detroit's Black Rock, and Miami's Drive, and it's simply an amazing one-off, with production by the great George Kerr (Whatnauts, Linda Jones, Manhattans, Phyllis Hyman) and a brace of strong songs headlined by the single "Give Me All Your Sweet Lovin'." And while most of the album is sweet 'n' spicy Southern soul, special mention must be made of the song "You've Got to Deal with It (This Superworld)," a tantalizingly powerful, seven minute-long, socially conscious soul epic that suggests Armstrong could have followed the politically aware path to stardom trod by Marvin Gaye, The O'Jays, and Curtis Mayfield.
