R.I.P. Jimmy Ruffin

Motown singer Jimmy Ruffin passed yesterday at the age of 78 in Las Vegas. Ruffin became famous for his 1966 hit song, “What Becomes Of The Brokenhearted.” He was the older brother of Temptations singer David Ruffin who he recommended for the group after turning it down the opportunity for himself. He cultivated a moderate level of fame in the United States by collecting two more well known singles, “Gonna Give Her All The Love I’ve Got” and “I’ve Passed This Way Before.” In the ’70’s he recorded the I Am My Brother’s Keeper album with David for Motown. His solo career in Britain did well thanks to the highly charted songs, “‘ll Say Forever My Love,” “It’s Wonderful (To Be Loved By You)” and “Your Love Was Worth Waiting For.” Robin Gibb produced his 1980 album, Sunrise and the song “Hold On To My Love” put him back in the limelight at home and abroad. While living in Britain he worked with Paul Weller and the pop group Heaven 17. A compilation of his most popular catalog offerings called There Will Never Be Another You was released in 2012.
