Lee David was a soul singer in the 1960s who recorded for Janus Records, Bell Records and Columbia Records, but not much information can be found on him. In 1967 at Columbia Records he recorded this hit, with “(I Feel A) Cold Wave Coming On” as the B-side. There is a story behind the single that claims that the song was originally intended for Marvin Gaye but he refused it, giving David the chance to record it. It became a favourite at Wigan Casino a couple years later. David also recorded a cover of The Impressions’ “Gypsy Woman” at Bell Records in 1968 but seems to have faded away from music after that.
