Really sad to hear this news.                                                                                                                                                              Takes me back to the days of the Twisted Wheel Whitworth street Manchester, The Hifi ClubTrinity street in Huddersfield where my brother Rob(R.I.P.) and I used to walk up to the Hifi and there was this West Indian guy who lived just down the road used to have his upstairs window open and would be playing good soul sounds. The one that caught our attention was this record Barefootin'.His name was Seamore Burke who we got quite friendly with. A really nice guy and one day he said to me I want you to have this record which was Barefootin'/ let's go baby where the the action is. Wherever I Dj I always have this sound with me and play it regularly at the Central. A class soul sound.

R.I.P. Robert.
