No idea he was that old.

He made good albums, not just a singles artist.

I was about 7 years old so I had no clue just what that thing that was going on was, I just loved the tune. That, and Age of Aquarius were the biggest songs of my young life, my Mom can attest to that.

According to the AP he started out singing jazz including performances with Bird.

Sad to read that,

When I was young I always tuned the radio louder when they played this big, beautiful voice singing about Mrs Jones.   .

Thank you Billy Paul and RIP
