The 5 O’clock Shadow: Tuesday June 9, 2020

The original artists are generally thought to be the greatest band of all time.

The Shadow artist honed his skills in the church choirs of Alabama, the harmonies of Detroit’s gospel groups, and by following in the footsteps of his hero Little Richard and finally found fame on Stax Records in the mid 1960’s.

The song was the top selling single of 1968 in the U.S., U.K., Australia and Canada. It was written for Julian Lennon.
