Everyone in Northern Soul knows 'Moving Away' of course and possibly 'My Own Two Feet' (or Puff! and others) but he was much more.  The first British songwriter working in the Brill Building, NY in the early 1960s, had a key Soho record shop with R&B/Soul imports, wrote for Small Faces, produced Mod bands such as The Action, The Boys and The Game in the mid-late 1960s. His early 1960s songs are great R&B/early Soul.  Even had his Disco song with 'Half A Day Is Done And We Haven't Earned A Penny'.   That's without his comedy, film and cabaret career of less relevance here.

I bought this recently, it was the only record I’d ever seen with the names Kenny Lynch and Curtis Mayfield on the same label. It turned out to be the Etta James classic written by Willie Dixon - I wonder what the story is behind this

I  think the lead singer on 'I Want To Make Love To You' might be Genya Ravan, formerly with Ten Wheel Drive. She does a very fine version of Lorraine Ellison 'Stay With Me' on Polydor.  I used to own an LP of her's called 'Night Owl'. I seem to recall she was Mick Ronson's girlfriend.

(Don't take any of this as fact 'cos it's from a muddled memory about a record I owned over forty years ago)

You’re quite right, it is Genya Ravan

Sad news. Definitely an overlooked talent. He owned record shops in London in the 60s, wrote hits for the Small Faces and had many a showbiz shenanigans with Brucie, Tarby, etc. What a life!

 Found this one in a local charity earlier in the year. Not bad at all...

Also, behind this one:

 RIP legend.
