Bunny Sigler Dies

We are sad to report that Philadelphia music legend Bunny Siger died today, October 6, aged 76, having suffered a massive heart attack.
Bunny first came to national prominence in 1959 as a solo vocalist,  recording for the V-Tone Records label in 1959. He has also recorded for the Decca, Parkway, Gamble, Philadelphia International and Gold Mind labels in his time. His hit cover of Let The Good Times Roll game him his first hit. When he worked with Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff’s Philadelphia International Records label, he wrote and co-wrote many of their hits, including The O’Jays’ Sunshine, Instant Funk’s I Got My Mind Made Up, Patti Labelle’s Somebody Loves You Baby, The Whispers’ Bingo, Jackie Moore’s Sweet Charlie Babe and lots more. He was a superb, much underrated vocalist in his own right, cutting, amongst many other seventies classics, a slowed down version of The O’Jays’ Love Train and singing, with Teddy Pendergrass, Harold Melvin and Leon Huff, the background vocals on the hit If You Don’t Know Me By Now. Moreover, he was a lovely man with an impish sense of humour. He will be missed, for sure.
