Fletcher was a singer with an urgent, characterful voice who worked for Ray Charles's Crossover Records on swooshing, disco-era "modern soul" sides so obscure they sold in handfuls.

Opening track "Honey Can I" is an absolute belter, but everything's well produced and arranged. When the compilers learnt Fletcher was now singing with a homeless men's choir in Chicago, they coaxed him into a comeback. In Cleethorpes.
