Jerry Butler, A/K/A ‘the Iceman’ had one of the most distinctive voices of the late 50’s and 60’s. He recorded two of my songs, the second recording was ‘Mr Dream Merchant’. I was in the studio when the recording went down..this was a different age of music, when an artist might get the best vocal on the first or second band take in the studio. That’s what happened with my song. Jerry was like the Tony Bennett of the R&B world, and I was proud to have him record my songs.
