Soul Serenade: Gene Chandler, "Just Be True" | Popdose


My latest Soul Serenade column for Popdose features Gene Chandler with his 1964 hit “Just Be True.”

“Last week I wrote about the Magnificent Men, and their hit “Peace of Mind.” One of the songs that the band included on their 1967 album “The Magnificent Men Live” was a cover of Gene Chandler’s 1964 hit “Just Be True.” It was one of those times when a great cover version of a song inspired me to seek out the original.”
