Eddie Holman - Eddie's My Name - Parkway

60s SoulPosted by Martin Fri, July 08, 2011 16:27:34
Often remembered for his 1969 smash hit "Hey There Lonely Girl", a cover of Ruby & The Romantics 1963 release "Hey There Lonely Boy", Eddie Homan had in fact by then already been a recording artist for a number of years. Making his debut at just 16 with "What You Don't Know (Won't Hurt You) for the Independent Leopard label in 1962, he continued to record for various labels throughout the 60s in search of that elusive breakthrough hit. Sadly Holman could not repeat the commercial success of "Hey There Lonely Girl" but continued to record and release great soul music for another decade, leaving a wealth of great material for us to choose from and a legacy of which he can be proud. Today's addition is from 1965 and just one of many great tracks he recorded that should have been more appriciated at the time of their release. Enjoy!
