Alfie Davison - R.i.p

Recommended Posts

Tom Moulton posted this on Facebook earlier today  ............

Singer, songwriter, Alfie Davison, passed away this past Easter Sunday, April 13th, after various medical complications. Davison was widely known, particularly in the U.K., for his songwriting achievements, namely the 1978 "pop / r&b" smash recording and song,
"Who's Gonna Love Me", recorded by The Imperials, which reached number 5 on the Music World pop charts. He went on as both singer and songwriter of the 1980 "Northern Soul" classic, "Love Is Serious Business".

In more recent times his "disco" song contribution, "Put Yourself In My Place" by TJM, was remixed by the "legendary", Tom Moulton, on Tom's 2011 CD album, "Philly ReGrooved 2", as well as two other recent previous appearances, on the 2011 "TJM" CD compilation, on Big Break Records, and an even earlier remix by Woody Bianchi on D-Vision in Italy.

Producer and longtime friend, Reid Whitelaw, said that Alfie Davison was the most warmest, caring, gentle, and loving souls he ever knew.

 

R.I.P.

He made some great tracks down the years & had a few popular cuts, this being his main one here in the UK ...........

Wow, that is sad news, "Love is a Serious Business" was the sound track to 1986 for me, I'm sure he knew how special that recording was to thousands upon thousands of fans...

 

We salute you Alfie, may you rest in peace.
