I dig Ronnie Dyson for two of his early-’70s hits: “(If You Let Me Make Love to You Then) Why Can’t I Touch You” and “One Man Band.” But he recorded a lot of good soul music that I’m just catching up to.
This includes, to my surprise, the original version of “Just Don’t Want to Be Lonely”... a song I hailed in a recent post about Cuba Gooding, Sr. (Check out Dyson’s rendition by clicking here.)
Underground beatmaster DJ Spinna has resurrected a 1983 Ronnie Dyson club track for his new compilation album, “The Boogie Back,” which drops on Tuesday. The track is available right now as a FREE MP3.

“All Over Your Face” was the last Ronnie Dyson single to reach the Billboard R&B chart. The singer died in 1990 at the age of 40. He was a huge talent and didn’t get his due.
