Today's piece of Lost Jewelry from the Vaults at Oldiez 93 for Wednesday, March 12th, 2014, comes from The Independents!
On April 28th, 1973, "Leaving Me" entered Billboard's Top 40 and left a trail to #21, not the greatest of showings, but it spent nine weeks in the chart, as long as many songs that broke into the Top 5 and it went to #1 for a single week on the R&B chart.
The Independents, from Chicago, Illinois, were Chuck Jackson, Maurice Jackson, HelenCurry and Eric Thomas. Chuck Jackson, not to be confused with the solo-artist Chuck Jackson, is the brother of civil-rights leader Jesse Jackson.
The Independents scored just the one Top 40 hit, thus are relegated to the status of a One-Hit-Wonder.
