Since 2004 Plastic Crimewave (aka Steve Krakow) has used the Secret History of Chicago Music to shine a light on worthy artists with Chicago ties who've been forgotten, underrated, or never noticed in the first place.

  • This 1976 B side, “Dreamin’,” hit the pop charts at number 72.
  • The 12-inch remix of “Hit and Run” from 1977
  • “Love Sensation” is one of Holloway’s biggest songs.
