Ron Holden -- I'll Forgive And Forget
I hadn't heard this for an age - one of my favourites from the late 70's Wigan Casino playlist.
Ron Holden (August 7, 1939, Seattle, Washington – January 22, 1997, Mexico) was an American pop singer.
Holden was discovered by Larry Nelson, who had just left work as a police officer to start his own record label. Holden spread the rumor that he had been heard singing by Nelson while being held in prison after being arrested for marijuana and alcohol possession, but the story has not been confirmed. Holden then released the single "Love You So", which became a hit in the U.S., peaking at #11 on the Black Singles chart and #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1960. Donna Records bought the rights to Holden's recordings shortly after and issued a full LP entitled Love You So; this record was re-issued by Del-Fi Records in 1994. Holden returned to the charts in 1974 with "Can You Talk?" (U.S. R&B #49). He died in Mexico in 1997. Wikipedia
