    RIP to the soul singer (and former member of the Contours) who stepped in admirably after the Temptations canned David Ruffin, beginning with . . .



    The St. Louis Post-Dispatch later disclosed it was complications from meningitis.





    RIP Mr. Edwards.

    Damn...sorry to hear that. Always loved Dennis' work. In addition to the above-posted songs I also loved his solo work - like this one:

    PWARS - my absolute favorite r'n'b/soul song. Goose bumps every time.

    Don't forget the arranger on that song, Paul Riser.

    While I love David Ruffin's vocals, the band was still amazing with Edwards. The band started to fade, IMO, when Eddie Kendricks left.
