The Breaking Point - Chuck Jackson

"Shagga dagga da-ga shick shick" it starts, already on edge, then Chuck sings seemingly relaxed, but he's not - he's at the breaking point, as the edgy frenetic drumming, inappropriate but unsettling strings and too-rich orchestration hints at until the chorus, exploding like a mid fifties western theme tune:

-if you don't come on back

I'm going to CRACK-UP

and ending

and then I'm gonna fade away (shagga da da)

you know you know I'm gonna fade away (shagga da da)........

Such explosive energy, we can't doubt him.
