Although it has not yet been widely reported, we’ve been informed in a comment here on the GMC (and it’s also at wikipedia) that R.B. Greaves, who is still remembered for his big 1969 hit “Take a Letter Maria”, has died in California.
Rather than repost our original profile of Greaves, I am instead going to give you the link for that post below so that those who are interested can see it complete with all the comments.
I’m also going to repost the music on that piece.
(Sorry about the irony in the title.)
