Charles Jackson - Gonna Getcha' Love 1979 Lp

Charles Chuck Jackson (not to be confused with the other singer Chuck Jackson) started his career as a songwriter in 1969 writing a few songs like "If It's Real What I Feel" and "Walk Easy My Son" to Jerry Butler. In the early 70's she met Marvin Yancy and they went to form a soul group The Independents. After the group broke up Chuck and Marvin wanted to continue their co-operation and met Natalie Cole.
Chuck Jackson and Marvin Yancy were behind some of the biggest hits of gold and platinum award singer Natalie Cole. Some of her hits the duo produced and wrote include "This Will Be," "Inseparable," "Sophisticated Lady", "Our Love," and "I've Got Love on My Mind".
Though busy with producing Chuck had also a solo career recording 2 albums "Passionate Breeze" in 1978 and "Gonna Getcha' Love" in 1979 on Capitol Records, under the name Charles Jackson.
