OTIS LEAVILL - NOBODY BUT YOU


Born in Georgia but relocated at age 2 to Chicago, Otis Leavill was not only a singer but also a talent scout who discovered the likes of The Chi-Lites and Tyrone Davis. Friends with Major Lance (who he boxed with), Curtis Mayfield and Billy Butler, Otis was right in the thick of the golden age of Chicago soul.

This beautiful track is simply the right choice for today; I proposed to my beautiful Angeline in front of Abbey Road studios in London and yes, it's a very good day indeed.

from 1967...

Congratulations to you both. How was your gig on Saturday? Can't believe it - I'm never in London, and I was in London that night! but couldn't get away. Hope it was fab and groovy.

My best to you both.

J’avais promis dans ma jeunesse
Que je m’aurais jamais marie...
C’est aujourd’hui que ma tete est couronnĂ©e
Et mon coeur est ornĂ© d’un bouquet....
