Shawn Elliott (aka Shawn Elliot) started out as a singer for Diamond records. After two records he switched over to Roulette records (which was easy for him to do because of the connections each label's owners had to each other). He would go on to record for Atlantic, London and other labels, before moving onto acting. This cover of the Essex hit (also for Roulette records) is pretty cool...and I think it's almost as good as the hit version. I hope you dig this as much as I do!
