Luther Ingram RIP

Sorry to hear that Luther Ingram, one of the very best soul singers of the seventies, has died aged 69. Best known for If loving you is wrong (I don't want to be right), which was later covered by Millie Jackson, Luther made some brilliant records for the Koko label produced by Johnny Baylor. These included Ain't that loving you (for more reasons than one) and Let's steal away to the hideaway. Luther, who co-wrote the Staples Singers classic Respect yourself, had been ill for several years with kidney problems. Another great soul man has passed away.
There's an obituary of Luther in The Times of March 22: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/comment/obituaries/article1550682.ece
