Interesting that apparently he turned down his chance to sing with The Temptations many years ago and of course his brother David filled that particular slot for quite a few years

Sad to see him gone - he had a great voice Sad

Very sad to hear of his death, I saw him in cabaret in the early 70s, a fact that I posted only at the weekend in a reference to a SOTS track. What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted will always be one of my all time favourite tracks.

RIP

I thought of our recent posts about Jimmy when I saw of his death,Helen.

Sad news...he had a wonderful voice and sang some wonderful songs.

It says in the article that graham posted...

"Ruffin's other credits include Jimmy Ruffin's Sweet Soul Music, a seven-part series he made for BBC Radio 2 in the 1990s."

Would be good to hear a repeat run of that!
