Joe Simon - Voice Your Choice

The name Joe Simon may not be a household name to you, but boy, did he ever have a great career. He was born September 2, 1943 in Simmesport, Louisiana and moved to Oakland, California in 1959. He was a member of a group called the Golden Tones and they recorded for Hush Records but without any charted hits.

However that all changed when he went solo. Between 1966 and 1975, he appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 charts a total of 31 times including 3 Gold Records.

Treasure Island Oldies presents Joe Simon on Voice Your Choice. Cast you vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Power Of Love or Drowning In A Sea Of Love. I'll play the winner on next week's show.
