A Candle For Dennis Edwards
Another sad day. Sad enough, actually, for me to interrupt my “retirement” from blogging. Dennis Edwards is dead. Dennis Edwards, the Temptations’ lead singer with the most powerful voice, has passed.
There are so many well known songs he sang with and without the Tempts — and sang fantastically — but one of my all time favorites by him is from his solo album “Don’t Look Any Further.” Unfortunately, the instrumentation is, to be honest, pathetic. But Dennis’ voice makes up for all the shortcomings of a cheap production.
So, here’s my favorite Dennis Edwards song to say good-bye to one great singer whose voice brought so much joy to so many of us.
Thanks, Dennis! Rest in peace.
