The 5 O’clock Shadow: Tuesday June 8, 2021
The original was recorded by Aretha Franklin’s sister.
The original was a Top 10 hit on the R&B chart but didn’t get past No. 62 on the Hot 100. A year later, today’s Shadow was released and reached No. 12 on the Hot 100 and went gold.
The Shadow singer was a 60’s icon who, unfortunately, is a member of the infamous 27 Club.
