Al Wilson (1939 - 2008)

In the year 2008 many R&B standouts have died, one of them was Meridan, Mississippi soul singer Al Wilson. From 1968 to 1976 Wilson had several top
40 hits which included "The Snake", "La La Peace Song", "Touch And Go" and
"I've Got A Feeling (We'll Be Seeing Each Other Again), but the biggest of
them all was the 1973 release "Show and Tell" which reached #1 on the Billboard
chart. Wilson along with The 5th Dimension were two of the first acts signed
by 60s rocker Johnny Rivers.
