ROY HEAD - TURN OUT THE LIGHTS
Three years after his massive hit ("Treat Her Right"; easily one of my 100 favorite 45's of all time) the great Roy Head released this moody mod r&b masterpiece that is relatively unknown, and more proof that he is one of history's finest white r&b singers. He still has it, as his performance that I caught at Ponderosa Stomp a few years back showed that Roy's voice is still in fine form, and his energetic stage presence would be exhausting for a person 1/3 his age!
Roy's career began (with his group The Traits) when he was still in high school, and he has been performing for nearly 55 years! Quite staggering to think about.
