R. B. Greavess was a native American of the Seminole tribe, an R&B singer and a nephew of soul singer Sam Cooke.
Greaves, whose 1969 hit “Take a Letter, Maria” reached No. 2 on the Billboard pop chart and he also charted in 1970 with versions of Burt Bacharach and Hal David’s “Always Something There To Remind Me” and covers of James Taylor’s “Fire And Rain” and Procol Harum’s “Whiter Shade Of Pale.”
In much the same vein as “Take A Letter Maria”, in “Who’s Watchiing The Baby (Margie)” Greaves sings about a cheating wife that he catches and questions why? Another great tune that charted.
R. B. was a warm, charming and talented gentleman.
