Song of the day: Roy Hamilton

Song of the day (5/7/2010):
Roy Hamilton - You Shook Me Up

"Roy Hamilton was a man of many talents, a boxer, an artist and one of the all time great singers. From a Northern Soul perspective it might be said that born in Georgia on the 16th April 1929 Roy Hamilton was ten years too early, he certainly died at least ten years too early at just forty years of age, some reports say of a stroke, others mention suicide, whatever, it was perhaps well before his true potential was ever recognised."
