Then we put on Rockie Charles (Charles Merrick) who passed today back in 2010.
‘Riccasha’ (Ricochet with a riff on the spelling) came out in 1967 and was played a little bit around the New Orleans area but failed to turn Charles into a Joe Tex level figure.
It should have.
Put ‘Riccasha’ on today and celebrate the life of the ‘President of Soul’
