Spencer Wiggins - Lonely Man - Goldwax

60s SoulPosted by Martin Wed, May 11, 2011 17:42:28

Born in 1942, Spencer Wiggins cut some excellent southern soul ballads for the Goldwax and Fame labels during the 1960s and early 70s before turning his back on secular music in 1976. Like so many of his peers he began singing in church and formed a group together with his siblings Percy (who's been featured previously on theses pages) and Maxine Wiggins. In 1964 he was signed to Quinton Claunch's Goldwax label where his first recordings were leased to the Bandstand USA label. Although he is most known for his wonderful ballads, Spencer Wiggins recorded some great uptempo music as well. Perhaps most known to northern soul fans is his unreleased "Let's Talk it Over" which has been reissued on CDs and bootlegged many times over. Today we focus on this 1967 release with Wiggins' rumbling voice in fine form.

"Lonely Man"
