Aashid Himons AKA Little Archie

This morning I dropped by the Southern Soul Forum and read a mail from UK soul expert Dave Gordon who had just discovered that Aashid Himons has his own website.

Aashid Himons is best known as "Little Archie" in UK soul circles for his pumping "All I Have To Do" on Dial from the late 60's. However, I have picked out the other side "You Can't Tie Me Down" which is a jerky pop influenced number with some catchy horn backed breaks.

Archie's interesting website tells us that he has a long a varied carer in music starting off in R&B and soul before moving on to other musical traditions in the Carribean, Mexico and Honduras.

There is also a substantial photo gallery illustrating Archie's life from 1950's to the present day.
