LEE ROGERS - SAD AFFAIR
Although the quality of releases from Detroit's Lee Rogers was incredibly high, he only had one minor national hit ("I Want You To Have Everything" hit #17 on the Billboard R&B charts). Lee certainly deserved more; this is (I think) the sixth side of his that I've featured on this blog.
Sounding eerily similar to Marvin Gaye, this ominous cut is one of those records that has a great moody edge but it's still a great "mover". Incredible!
