The Independents - I Love You Yes I Do - Wand

70s SoulPosted by Martin Tue, March 31, 2009 07:51:39

The Independents didn´t last as a group for more than three years but managed to release several singles that made it high on the R&B charts during 1972-74. The group consisted of Chuck Jackson, who had returned to New York from Detroit and the Motown label, Helen Curry, Maurice Jackson and Eric Thomas. This record went all the way to the top of the R&B chart when it was released in 1973, or actually not this particular track as I´ve chosen to feature the records B-side today. The A-side is called "Leaving Me" and is a fine song too but I´ve opted for the more uptempo "I Love You...". Chuck Jackson later had some success with writing and producing for other artists like Ronnie Dyson and Natalie Cole.

"I Love You Yes I Do"
