Al Abrams Dies At 74

Recommended Posts

Just seen the link posted by Stuart Cosgrove elsewhere of the death of Al Abrams, an integral part of the Motown Empire, especially in the early days.

Sorry to hear this, and a bit surprised.  I had had some nice conversations with him recently.  Usually, cancer moves slowly when first diagnosed at a patient's advanced age.  But colon cancer is always very dangerous.  I just hope he didn't suffer much.  He was too young - only a few years older than I.  He was one of the main reasons for Motown's success, getting their acts through doors that African-American acts and business had previously been barred.
