Gene Chandler - Such A Pretty Thing - Checker

60s SoulPosted by Martin Fri, March 19, 2010 18:28:08

Similarly to Emanuel Laskey, Gene Chandler was a big local artist in the 60s but some 100 miles further west, in Chicago to be exact. However Chandler´s fate turned out to be more fortunate, at least music business wise, as he had several top 40 entries and and also a couple of national hits. This is not one of them though, cut before he hit the big time this is a perfect example of the type of uptempo joyful soul that the windy city locals produced en masse in the mid 60s. Enjoy!
