Song of The Week: Chris Clark - Love's Gone Bad

Believe it or not, I'm actually featuring the A-Side of a record today! 

From August of 1966, we have blue eyed soul singer, Chris Clark on the Motown down-label, V.I.P., doing Love's Gone Bad. This Holland-Dozier-Holland composition has a real garage beat to it that just pounds away at the ears. In fact, Detroit garage band, The Underdogs, would record the same song for the same label in January of 1967. Largely the same sound. But Chris Clark's version is superior in our opinion. That's why she gets a feature at On The Flip-Side, and The Underdogs just get a toss away mention. Rumor has it that Chris was a personal favorite of Barry Gordy (wink, wink). 

Enjoy. Until next time, we'll see you On The Flip-Side.
