Chuck Aarons & Jim Ackley – Aarons & Ackley (1971)
Artist: Chuck Aarons & Jim Ackley
Title: Aarons & Ackley
This pop duo were both born in the United States. Chuck Aarons was up in Toronto avoiding the draft in 1970 when he met Jim Ackley, who was working as a clerk in the promotion department of Capitol Records, and they decided to become partners.
They were backed by two experienced session musicians; Jim Rolleston (bass), who’d once worked with Seals and Crofts and Gordon Lightfoot and Terry Clarke (drums), who’d worked with John Shelley’s Manhole and Fifth Dimension.
Their sole album spawned a minor hit, Devil Song, but after its release they moved into production work and also produced jingles. Later in December 1974 they signed to GRT records but only one 45 resulted, Where Did The Music Go?. Ackley was ex-Oregon band Thirteenth Story from 1968. (jooba)
