Bunny Sigler R I P magazine cover

Tom Moulton just posted this message ........ I can't believe this? My Good Friend The Great Bundino Siggalucchi aka Bunny Sigler has passed on. I thought he was getting better and I didn't hear anything other then that. Bunny was one of the true greats of Philadelphia. He could do anything and also did anything for somebody who needed it. He was the Genius of Philadelphia when it came to music. There was no one more creative then him. He was simply "THE BEST" Now all of Heaven will be able to hear Bundino's The Lord's Prayer which he sang at so many service's. Philadelphia will never be the same without you my Friend. RIP Bundino

We truly are losing the soul greats at a very disturbing rate at present ....   R I P Bunny, hope the GOOD TIMES ROLL for you up in heaven.

Very sad news indeed Roburt, I absolutely loved Girl Don't Make Me Wait after hearing it as a youngster for me it's an outstanding track right up there with the very best.

         RIP Bunny.

Going way back to 1959 ... this single obviously had it's admirers back in the early 60's as copies of it were pressed up again towards the end of 61 & it was re-promoted as a new release .... maybe his 45 on Craig was doing well locally in Philly and so they reactivated this old 45 to catch a few easy sales.

I don't know why (even after all these years), but UK copies on Cameo Parkway of Bunny's biggie "Let The Good Times Roll" dried up within just a few weeks of the 45's release. 

By then, the 45 had taken off in UK clubs and demand from soulies was growing stronger. Again, I know nothing of the industry politics behind the move, but EMI went to their French associate and mass imported French Stateside copies of the release.

This 45 was probably the first import soul single that many UK soulies ever bought (coz you could just go to your local high street record shop to obtain a copy) ... even today, if you go on Discogs, around 80% of French copies of the 45 are on offer from British sellers rather than French sources.

Yet another great to leave us. Very sad. Just one thing though, I thought Benny Sigler was Bunny's brother, seem to have this in my mind.

Cheers

I found a couple of places that state it,  https://rateyourmusic.com/artist/bunny-sigler  - and also on a youtube comment for the Phil la song.

It's bugging me because I remember reading that one of Bunnys regrets was not recording a song with Benny, just can't find it now.

Think it might be another thread on here.

And B Signer wrote it...

Confusing...

I thought he sang with one brother in the 50s but not 'benny'.

Also thought when 'turn to ' came out, it was a spello..

You live and you learn!

He sang with brother James in I think the Opals.  I always assumed Benny was another brother or someone different.

Bunny always denied that he had anything to do with the Benny Sigler 45 at all ... BUT THEN ... he was signed to another record label at the time.

However Benny recorded with the Cooperetts for Lash Records around 1963 (2 tracks escaped on the BEST OF LASH RECORDS CD with another cut being available on amazon as a digital track). So it seems Benny was a recording artist around 4 years before the Phi-la-Soul 45. I CAN GIVE YOU LOVE sounds like a decent dancer (but being early 60's sounds a bit dated). Did it ever escape at the time ??

He also wrote a couple of songs that Alfreda Brockington cut for Lash (Give Me What You're Giving Her being a decent dancer).
