One of the biggest soul artists to come out of the thriving Chicago scene was Gene Chandler. Born Eugene Dixon he hit the charts with "Duke Of Earl" in 1962 with his group The Dukays. Chandler soon left his group and went solo and the later pressings of "Duke Of Earl" was credited to him as a solo artist to help build his careeer.
He recorded for a number of labels like Chess, Constellation, Curtom and Chi-sound to name but a few. All his material is worthwhile but the material made in the midsixties sits especially well with me.
This is a typical Chicago soul recording with all the right credentials. Written by Carl Davies and Gerald Sims and produced by Davies Mr. Chandler sings his heart out trying to explain how love can make us do foolish things.
