SJI has been off for two weeks due to scheduling conflicts that could not be reconciled. It will return this Friday and I have planned a small tribute to Jimmy Ruffin that will include the original single of this song as requested by the owner of this site. Two more songs will accompany the singe. Are you keen to quess? (Hint: One is a cover of a major hit from 1966.)
