This is the first-ever official biography of the unjustly forgotten 'Father of Soul Music'. A notable R'n'B chart success in his day, his songs are now better known through covers, such as Peggy Lee's version of "e;Fever"e;. Mystery surrounds his death in prison, attributed by some to a beating by a guard. Gone at the age of 30, he remains one of the most important voices in black music.
