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.

*****I Keep Forgettin'- by Chuck Jackson*****

from Wikipedia:

"I Keep Forgettin'" is a song written and produced by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller (and arranged by Teacho Wiltshire) in 1962, and it was originally recorded by Chuck Jackson. It reached #55 on the Billboard Top 100 and remained on the chart for 7 weeks. It did not chart on the R&B chart. This single is often cited as one of the most innovative and least commercial singles written and produced by Leiber-Stoller.

Cover versions:

Checkmates Ltd. featuring lead singer Sonny Charles recorded a version on their 1969 album "Love Is All We Have to Give" produced by Phil Spector

the Artwoods recorded a version of the song for his 1966 album Art Gallery.

Ringo Starr recorded a version of the song for his 1983 album Old Wave.

David Bowie recorded a version of the song for his 1984 album Tonight.

Procol Harum recorded a version of the song. It appeared on the album Procol's Ninth, released in 1975.
