Sad indeed. Gregory really knew how to carry a tune. 59 is no age really but he did a lot of living in that time. Nice to find someone out there who goes deeper than 'Night Nurse'. I can remember hearing 'Mr Cop' back in 1981 and playing the 'Extra Classic' album every Sunday morning for 3 or 4 years. Even my mum, who was as conservative as any white middle class English woman could be, would groove to Gregory.
Extra Classic: One of the finest vocal performances in any genre.
