Jimmy Jones (b. 1937 Birmingham, Alabama) is still highly regarded as an influential character on modern music. His use of falsetto voice in R&B/pop directly influenced Del Shannon, who in turn influenced The Bee Gees disco orientated tracks. There is a great video of Jimmy Jones performing his other well known hit 'Handy Man' live and it shows why people warmed to him; a real charismatic entertainer and showman.
