HARVEY & ANN - WHAT CAN YOU DO NOW


Just learned that legendary music figure Harvey Fuqua has passed away; he was 80 years old. His career spanned from the doo wop years and beyond (including his performance of "Ten Commandments Of Love" with Harvey & The Moonglows which is one of the all time classic doo wop records).

Getting his start at Chess records, (not only with the Moonglows but also working with Etta James early on) before relocating to Detroit in the late fifties and helping out to establish the Motown empire, Harvey seemed to have a pulse on the next big thing for many years.

Here we find Harvey in duet with Ann Bogan for an excellent hard hitting r&b number. Yes, I know; I typically feature more low key records on Sundays, but this one just seemed RIGHT as a salute to Harvey.

from 1963...
