NoRoJo2016: He sez he can't quit us!

But, here in Wisconsin, we have other plans for him.

Headline from article in 5/3/2016 Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
And a super PAC funded by billionaire conservative Charles Koch debuted a $2 million advertising campaign featuring VA whistleblower Ryan Honl.

"I Can't Quit Her" appears on Blood Sweat & Tears' first album, Child is Father to the Man, released in April 1968.  At this time, the band was led by Al Kooper.  David Clayton Thomas joined the group after Kooper left before the end of the year.  The album spent 55 weeks on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart and peaked at #47.  Released as a single, "I Can't Quit Her" floundered, not even finding its way onto the Billboard Hot 100.

Perhaps the Arbors' 'symphonic' version is more in line with RoJo's ambitions.

Two sets of brothers formed the Arbors while attending the University of Michigan.  "I Can't Quit Her" is the last of their 4 singles to chart on the Billboard Hot 100.  Their cover version of the Blood Sweat and Tears song debuted on 5/31/1969 and spent 5 weeks on the chart, peaking at #67.
