Chuck's smash hit "ANY DAY NOW" ranks as one of the greatest tunes of the Rock Era, with numerous cover versions from everybody from Elvis Presley and Ronnie Milsap to Bill Medley and Luther Vandross. He was one of the first artists to record material by Burt Bacharach and Hal David successfully. He also had hits with "I Don't Want To Cry", "Tell Him I'm Not Home", "I Keep Forgeting", "I Wake Up Crying", and numerous other hits. From 1961 through 1980. Chuck has had some 33 charting records...but, he, like numerous other classic R&B artists,have been totally been ignored by the R&R HOF due to their changing focus from R&B to Rap in recent years.

I've only just begun my research on Chuck Jackson, but there's a very strong case for him. Would love to at least see him get considered. But if they haven't even gotten to Jerry Butler as a soloist or Brook Benton yet, I'm not holding my breath. Too bad.
