Chuck Payne - Understanding heart

Today I will present one more representative of Northern soul scene called Chuck Payne. Chuck Payne was an obscure singer with deep voice in the 60s and 70s. Chuck was more known for another single in the 60s on ABC Paramount Records called "Ripple In The Stream / Your Blue Horizon".

This single is ultra rare and released on Adventures Records in the late 70s. Adventures Records is one of the oldest labels in New York. Founded in 1946.
Chuck Payne collaborated with Juggy Murray Jones. They recorded two songs entitled "Round Midnight" and "Understanding Heart". It was a big surprise for me when I noticed on the label about Juggy Murray. Arranged by Tommy James. Produced by Juggy Murray. 
I have chosen the song "Understanding Heart". Composed by himself.

Note: The above posted single is not played in full

# The other song "Round Midnight" is a jazz standard song which was composed by pianist Thelonious Monk. It is thought that Monk originally composed the song sometime in 1940 or 1941. "Round Midnight" appears in over 1000 albums.
