For Ronnie Dyson’s albums please go here.
I know it’s Friday again. It feels like Wednesday though. So, it’s not too far off tho post a title about A Wednesday In Your Garden.
Ronnie Dyson (June 5, 1950 – Nov. 10. 1990) was born in Washington and grew up in Brooklyn. He established his musical roots at church and sang his way through to the famous musical Hair in which he performed as lead actor.
My pick today is from his 1973 album, One Man Band. The album was produced by Thom Bell and includes Just Don’t Want To Be Lonely, the song that, a year later, turned out to be a success for the Main Ingredient.
Ronnie Dyson’s beautiful natural tenor voice was silenced way too early in 1990. R.I.P. Ronnie Dyson.

All that means that Spring Fever is wreaking its delicious havoc again. I feel exactly as the two tracks I picked for today’s post sound.
