If you're of a certain age you'll remember a couple of hits he had in the charts. Big WikiPedia entry.

I'm sure we've had these already, but they bear repeating. On Craig Charles' show this week. The second one is hair on the back of the neck stuff for me.

He played the 7th Avenue Aviators did he? Outstanding choice, but not exactly mainstream, pretty rare in fact :-) Both excellent records and neither have been played here before, nice one RS medal

I'd put both of them in my top 10 northern tracks. Trying to remember when I first heard them. I think it was Thursday nights at the Thekla about 25 years ago!

I had never heard 7th Avenue Aviators as a young lad, it might have been a connoisseur's item back in the day. It came big second time around though, I remember being played a lot at the Prestwich (Manchester) soul nights about 20 years back.

I thought I might indulge my "other" passion for your entertainment :-)

Feel free to post, but please do try and keep it soulful. No funk or ska please!
