Editor's note: on the first track the guy singing sounds like a bluesy white version of Smokey Robinson with some Procul Harem-esque backing organ. On the second track he sounds a bit like a white Ray Charles backed with the groovier version of the Rolling Stones. Hell, maybe the dude's actually black which would explain a lot. Either way there's a nice write up on the man here.
