Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Working My Way Back to You Babe

I was saddened to hear that Pervis Jackson, the man who provided the bass vocals to The Spinners, died today - just two days after learning he had cancer. I can remember going to the store to buy my .45 (that's a single that was played on one of those ancient record players - not a gun - dear Army of Dad, my boytoy young hubby). I loved Working My Way Back to You and Rubberband Man (shown here on Burt Sugarman's The Midnight Special - which brings back tons of memories from getting to stay up late some weekends to watch!)

According to the news report, The Spinners formed in Detroit as a 1950s doo-wop group. They strung together a number of hits in the 1970s that included Mighty Love and I'll Be Around with Atlantic Records.

I'm sure Pervis has added his beautiful voice to the angels' chorus. Sing on, my man. You brought joy to this little gal.

*I tried to do a YouTube post, but once again, I was foiled. Expect it to show up on here around the middle of October.*
