Originally released in 1972, ‘Young, Tough and Terrible’ was the second release on Brunswick Records from The Lost Generation.
The Chicago group had a short but successful span of releases throughout the early 1970’s, their first single “The Sly, Slick and the Wicked” earned Brunswick enough profits to part ways with its parent label Decca Records. After disbanding in 1974 the four members went separate ways, most notably Fred Simon joining the Chi-Lites.
“Young, Tough and Terrible” has been remastered and is set to see a release this month through Brunswick. Take a listen below, and grab the remastered 12″ via Piccadilly.
