I CAN'T TURN YOU LOOSE * THE CHAMBERS BROTHERS * DIRECTION 3865 * UK

With a Gospel and Folk background beginning in the early 1950s, The Chambers Brothers : Lester, Joe, Willie, George and Brian Keenan, had their second taste of chart success when I Can't Turn You Loose reached  #37 on the Billboard Hot 100.

 A close cover of the Otis Redding recording the Chambers Brothers version is just as energetic as the original but is, apart from being longer (almost 5 minuets)  more rhythmic with, what seems like, a more hypnotic and determined driving beat.
