Leroy Hutson, the first replacement for Curtis Mayfield in the Impressions, produced the Natural Four on Curtom for several promising releases, but four flops followed during 1975-1976: “Heaven Right Here on Earth,” “Love’s So Wonderful,” “It’s the Music,” and “Free.” Curtom released three LPs by the Natural Four: The Natural Four, Heaven Right Here on Earth, and Nightchaser. The Natural Four certainly deserved better; they had a crisp, smooth lead singer in Chris James, who had a tenor similar to the Spinners’ Bobbie Smith but heavier and more melodious. The group had no writers of substance though, and were usually at the mercy of producers and songwriters. Still, the Natural Four voiced some of the sweetest harmony ever laid down.The heavenly soul group that was one of Chicago’s best harmony acts of the 70s! Like a lot of Curtom material from this period, this album experiments a little with an uptempo sound — and it mixes that with some mellower tracks that are in the vein of their incredible work on the first LP.
