Duffy Power R.I.P.

Duffy Power in 1966

This week I was saddened to hear of the death of the British singer Duffy Power. You can read his obituary here. Duffy made some great singles including the mod floorfillers “If I get lucky someday” and “A woman made trouble” both on Parlophone. But I present in his memory an earlier single on Fontana, in fact a b-side. “What now” is a haunting popcorn tune, that shows off his voice to great effect. You can hear it below. Farewell Duffy…

      Thanks for the comment David. It was sad news indeed. It’s certainly a shame that Duffy never appeared on ‘Later’, that would have been fantastic. Though I suppose there is some solace in that he was gaining in recognition before he passed.

        many thansk for the response I am afraid that society never learns Duffy was exceptional and I mean that with all my heart
        best regards and lets hope some company will issue the phillips and fontana cds as they have for many others I wrote to john mcglaughlin many years or so ago in monaco and he really was appreciative of the early years which says it all
        regards and best wishes from and to a proper music lover
        david
