Darrow’s version of “The Rising Cost of Love”, backed by “Honey Can I”, are cherished by ‘70s/modern soul fans. His Atco single “Improve”, from the same period, has a very elusive B-side called “Let’s Get Together”. The more easily obtained demos are all double A sides. In the early ‘80s he returned to Detroit and around 1987 returned to Chicago, but not to the music business. Several deaths in the family, including his mentor and stepfather, Johnny Haygood, caused Darrow to suffer depression, but later involvement in the church, and more recently singing gospel and recent concert appearances has helped him recover. Before I left the UK I compiled a CD of all Darrow’s releases including “Hope For Love” which hadn’t been released at that time. During an earlier phone call Darrow told me that he hadn’t access to any of his songs and would really appreciate a CD so he could listen to the songs he created all those years ago. I told him that many of his tracks were available on Youtube, but that wasn’t much help as he didn’t have his own computer and only had limited access to one at his girlfriend’s house.
