Al Wilson has one of the smoothest, most reliable voices in the world of soul music. Best remembered for the #1 pop hit “Show and Tell,” he toured the local nightclub circuit in LA before joining the R&B vocal group the Jewels; from there he landed with the Rollers, followed by a stint with the instrumental combo the Souls.
In 1966, Wilson signed with manager Marc Gordon, who quickly scored his client an a cappella audition for Johnny Rivers. The “Secret Agent Man” singer not only signed Wilson to his Soul City imprint, but also agreed to produce the sessions that yielded the 1968 R&B smash “The Snake.”
In 1973, Wilson issued the platinum-selling Weighing In — the album’s success was spurred by the shimmering “Show and Tell,” a Johnny Mathis castoff that sold well over a million copies. “The La La Peace Song,” released in 1974, proved another major hit, and two years later, “I’ve Got a Feeling We’ll Be Seeing Each Other Again” peaked at number three on the R&B chart. With 1979’s “Count the Days” Wilson scored his final chart hit and he spent the next two decades touring clubs and lounges.
