After a two year battle with an illness JAY passed away on the 2nd of January, he was still performing in December 2013. The original JAY of JAY AND THE AMERICANS, but will be remembered more for his legendary Northern Soul track "Up and Over". This record means so much to me and I'm sure to lots of people on Soul Source. God Bless JAY TRAYNOR.

Very sad, I remember the first time i heard Up & Over as a 14 year old at Pleasley Verney 'teatimer'. Great intro, great vocals. R.I.P.
