CHUCK BERNARD - TURN HER LOOSE


St Louis native Chuck Bernard relocated to Chicago in the early '60's, released at least 15 45's in the period between 1964-1975 yet never had a big breakthrough hit.

This melancholy side is one of those great records that brings together the ballad format with a hard edged soul sound- no doubt inspired by the psychedelic soul emanating from the likes of The Temptations @ Motown during the era.

from 1970...

Almost skipped this one because of the word melancholy you used, but it contains every element that makes a great pop song. Thanks Derek.
