DARROW FLETCHER - I THINK I'M GONNA WRITE A SONG


This performer, criminally underrated (I don't think there's any type of CD compilation that's ever been released) was a child prodigy who seemingly was born to perform.

Cutting early sides for Groovy Records before his voice changed ("The Pain gets A Little Deeper" has been a featured 45 of the day in the past), and touring with major artists, Darrow never seemed to be able to break nationally, which is an absolute crime. For such a youngster, he completely owns "The Pain' as well as its' flip side, "My Judgment Day" (email me for MP3's if you need them. They are essential listening).

This cut was recorded after his voice changed and the way Darrow could tackle a lyric is, to this listener, the epitome of soul music.

from 1970...

Man, what a killer tune. Could you send me any mp3 you have by this guy. I'd never heard of him before. Thanks so very much, as you have opened my eyes to many new artist and revisited some old friends.puj1960@netzero.com

Absolutely Killer!! Thanks a ton.

Apparently not easy to find his stuff at all. Amazon has one track called 'Improve' which is also great.
