Charles B. – Lack Of Love (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 7th July 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1989

“Lack Of Love” is an acid house single by Charles B who hails from Chicago and is known as The Grave Digger due to his spiritual and religious background and his ability to sing in descantes. Well known in the gay scene, Charles B. wrote his own songs by singing them to musical accomplices like Adonis.

The record was produced by acid house pioneer Adonis who made his name with the classic 1986 tracks “No Way Back” and “We’re Rockin Down The House”.

The “heiy” vocal sample comes from “In the Morning Time” by Tramaine originally, from ’86. The “Heiy” sample is actually the “Ha” syllable of a vocal “Sing Hallelujah”, messed around with a bit. “Sing Hallelujah” vocal from “In the Morning Time” was also sampled as the main refrain in Dr Alban’s “Sing Hallelujah”.

“Lack Of Love” was the only single ever released by Charles B..
