I Just Want to Be Loved: Lee Charles breaks it all the way down.

Wow. What a little stunner. I played this 1973 cut during my second set at Morseland this past Thursday. Such a quality Chicago cut.  Arranged by the mighty, mighty Tom Tom Washington (who later worked with the likes of Earth, Wind, & Fire), this was co-written by Lee Charles with Lowrell Simon [from the group The Lost Generation (famous for the hit “Sly, Slick, & Wicked”), and, later, Lowrell (famous for “Mellow, Mellow, Right On”)].
Lee Charles also wrote songs for Jerry Butler’s famous Workshop in the early 70’S. Beautiful early appearance of some spacey Moog sounds and some solid truth.
