Willie Hutch Love Runs Out
I started In Dangerous Rhythm back in September 2005 and the first post was about the death of Willie Hutch. It seems fitting as I move towards 2000 posts that I post this video up of the man.
Ian Levine who posted the video has this to say:
Willie Hutch was a Northern Soul legend who went on to be a major prolific Motown recording artist and songwriter. He had never appeared in England until finally, in 2003, he performed at the Togetherness weekender in Fleetwood, and Ralph Tee and myself did a deal to film his concert and tell his life story. Whilst he was here, and not wanting to miss such a wonderful opportunity, we did a new recording of his legendary Northern Soul classic "LOve Runs Out', which, to my mind, was the most authentic re-recording we've ever done. Then we spent ages up in Morecambe filming a video for it. Tragically he died shortly after, so this is probably his last ever performance, and we're so lucky it's captured on video for posterity
