Jambalaya/Fool! Fool! Fool!/He'll Never Love You Like I Do/Go To Him
Fool, Fool, Fool by Ray Brown and the Whispers was a chart topping single o 1965 reaching #1 Sydney #4 Melbourne #2 Brisbane #1 Adelaide #1 Perth. The B-side was Go To Him, something of a cult classic in its own right.
Fool fool fool released in July 1965, was a cover of Roosevelt Grier's "Fool, Fool, Fool". Lyrically, the song is pretty slight, being a rather melodramatic variant on the "Mockingbird" theme, with a dash of "I Fought The Law" thrown in.
A former footballer, Ray was always known for his fit and non-indulging lifetyle, so it came as a great shock to friends and fans when he died suddenly on August 16, 1996 ,at 53
