Such a sad loss- what a thrilling,atmospheric anthem 'Job Opening' is,that we've loved and danced to over the decades.Another fine Soul -and Doo-Wop- voice gone; Sammy & the Del-Larks ' 1960 45','I Never Will Forget' is a lovely Doo-Wop ballad with a fine lead from Sammy,long popular with R&B vocal group fans & collectors.  Sam's 67' Vision  solo 45 'SOS For Love' is excellent,too as are his early 70's  Phil- LA of Soul 45's as Tyrone Ashley 

Thanks so much for the music ,Sammy

Sammy Campbell, a New Jersey music great whose songs with the Del Larks and as the solo artist known as Tyrone Ashley attracted new generations of fans decades after the original records were released, passed away on Aug. 26, the Judkins Colonial Home has announced. 

The Plainfield native was 79.

“Sammy Campbell was an integral part of the Plainfield  music scene which at the time in the ’60s included numerous talented singers and musicians including George Clinton and the Parliaments,” said music historian Charlie Horner. “His record ‘Job Opening’ is now one of the most sought after Northern Soul records in the U.K. “

Sammy's funeral today - RIP 

Met him on the New York Soul Trip & Prestatyn Weekender. He was a great talker and had so much time for his UK fans.

He said he written Job Opening in 63 and recorded in 64. How ahead if its time was that. 

A sad day - Mick
