Rest in Peace Al Wilson

Al Wilson

Al Wilson, a soul singer who had a No. 1 Billboard hit with 1973's Show and Tell, has died at age 68.

Wilson died Monday of kidney failure at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Fontana, Calif., according to his son, Tony Wilson.

In 1973, he issued the album Weighing In, which had crossover appeal and included the hit Show and Tell, formerly recorded by Johnny Mathis. This was the jam back in the day. I use to do the grind to that song (yeah I did that dance..lol). He wasn't a one hit wonder but he had his biggest hit with that song.
