Ten City – State of Mind ’90




Über das zweite Studioalbum von Ten City, inkl. der Singles „Whatever makes you happy“, „I should learn to love“ und „Superficial People“.

Nach dem großen Erfolg des Debütalbums „Foundation“ mit der Hitsingle „That’s the way love is“ arbeiteten Ten City und Marshall Jefferson mit den besten Musikern Chicagos und dem Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra an dem Nachfolgealbum.
Das Album konnte nicht an den kommerziellen Erfolg anknüpfen. Herausgekommen ist aber ein schönes Album mit viel Soul und House.
