Black Music History "Giving Them Roses" – Day 17: Gene Chandler

“The Duke of Earl”

Today we give roses to the Eugene Dixon… better known as Gene Chandler… He is primarily recognized for his hit “Duke of Earl”… However, my favorite work is his 1978 album Get Down… highlights on the album are “I’m The Traveling Kind”, “Please Sunrise” and the popularly sampled “Tomorrow I May Not Feel Same”…
