An ultra-rare slice of old school soul at it's finest, "You Got Me Hypnotized" b/w "She's A Play Girl" is a 1984 single by the seven member group CI CI, who were led by Clifton Dyson, the younger brother of famed soul singer and actor, Ronnie Dyson, and featured vocalist Rose Bullock. The "A" side, "(You Got Me) Hypnotized" is a classic soul ballad arranged by Al Johnson who co-founded the soul group, The Unifics and produced by the great Charles "Skip" Pitts, the guitarist responsible for the legendary wah-wah guitar lick that opens The Theme from Shaft by Issac Hayes. "(You Got Me) Hypnotized" was no doubt inspired by Linda Jones' 1967 hit "Hypnotized," a completely different song but similar vibe - a definite tip-of-the-hat. The flip side, "She's A Play Girl" starts out defined by the groovy bass line, and then slowly, hints of strings and horns enter to give it an early disco feel. Originally released on the legendary Creative Funk label in 1984, this rare classic has been newly remastered and finally made available in the digital domain.
