New York singer Chuck Stephens had a couple of releases in the mid 70s both of which had a good ballad on them. The one on Jen Jillus “Love You Mady” is a bit too sweet for these pages, but the East Caost 45 has the super Girl I Want To Make Love To You to make up for it. You can tell from the opening chords that the song was written and produced by the great Roy C as its right in his “Sex and Soul” bag. But even though Stephens isn’t quite as forceful as Roy was in his prime, he still does a fine job of making his sexual frustration perfectly clear. One that every southern soul fan should know about for sure.
