Lou Rawls 1933-2006

I don’t often post on weekends but I wanted to pay tribute to someone whose passing the media has tended to trivialize… I’m speaking of Lou Rawls. Now Lou Rawls may be far removed from the world of Jamaican music but he was a great singer and a good man and his influence transcended all genres. His music obviously touched John Holt who recorded his version of Rawls’ hit “You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine,” circa 1976 – I have the track on a John Holt greatest hits compilation and it doesn’t give specifics. So as a small tribute to Lou Rawls I present this track…
