Robert Dickey (2nd Sept 1939 - 29th Dec 2011)


Until today when I read the news in, of all places, the freebie newspaper on the train, I honestly couldn't have told you who Robert Lee Dickey was.

But I sure knew 'Bobby Purify' - from wonderful records like 'I'm Your Puppet' and this further, splendid Reason To Be Cheerful...

James & Bobby Purify - 'Shake A Tail Feather' (1967)

A stomper for your Friday.

May he RIP.

  1. I thought that he had passed away a couple of years ago. Hell of a voice.

  2. Your London free papers carry better news than ours. We just get stories about broken paving stones and dog shit.

  3. Don't give him any more fuel SA, he goes on about London far too much as it is.

  4. Move him up to Salford, that's what I say.

    Aint no Routemaster romance there. Still horse-drawn trams and rag n bone men. Why dy'a think Morrissey now lives in California, or wherever it is?

    Lots of widgetty draught Guinness left from the New Year. Cheers lads n lasses.
