MAJOR HARRIS (1947 - 2012)

The music world has lost another great talent, as Major Harris, the former vocalist with the r&b band, The Delfonics passed away on November 9th.

Harris joined the soul group, (best known for the hit songs, "Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time)" and "La-La (Means I Love You)") in 1971 to replace singer Randy Cain but the group's glory days were behind them.

The song hit number five on the pop chart and went to number one on the r&b chart with the single selling over a half million copies.
