SEVEN DAYS TOO LONG – Roulette, 1966, Transatlantic 1967
Chuck Wood is best remembered for a track that would become one of the favourite soul anthems of the sixties – Seven Days Too Long. Seven Days to the next Twisted Wheel all nighter was sometimes too long as well!
But we got through the working week to return the next Saturday night to swing and turn and dance and talk and groove to sounds like this fantastic track when we danced all night at the Twisted Wheel.
Chuck Wood – Soul Shing Aling (Roulette) the B side of Seven Days Too Long also had a lot of plays.
We never heard from him again. Who was he? where is he? We can’t find Chuck…Kev Roberts puts him at no:10 in his Top 500. And Dexies Midnight Runners did a version – always wondered what exactly inspired that name….? Dexies assisted dancing to Seven Days: OKay the games up! Anyway we claim Chuck as ‘OURS’ long before Northern Soul got to categories him!
