There is only one Duke of Earl. In 1962 Gene Chandler invented a timeless character who spoke a language of romance, desire and imagination. Then in 1965 Gene offered us a Rainbow. It sits on a horizon of passion and yearning and cares nothing of age. This particular prism reminds us of the soulful fever in us all. I had the privilege of witnessing Gene work his Rhythm and Blues wizardry at The Apollo Theater in New York City as a 13 year old and again recently in Florida as a 66 year old. That brilliant Rainbow is still glowing brightly 50 years later. At 82 years of age, the Earl still reigns over his Dukedom. Long Live The Duke!
