Old School Friday "RIP Major Harris"

Well Friends, Friday is just about over and I have not posted in a while due to my work hours BUT I could not go to bed without acknowledging the passing of a Philadelphia Great.
I found out a little while ago that MAJOR HARRIS one of the powerhouse voices of the Delfonics. As well as a solo artist has died.  Major Harris born February 9, 1947 died today at the age of 65 from congestive heart and lung failure.
I was talking to a coworker today about how I ABSOLUTELY LOVE Old School music and those of you who have visited my Old School Music spot KNOW that I was raised on music, so I like to celebrate those who were instrumental in my musical journey. Growing up, the Delfonics were (and STILL are) one of my favorite groups, so I am shocked an appalled that the passing of Major Harris was barely mentioned.
So, Major! This post is for YOU!!
