FOLLOW YOUR HEART – 1966 – Cameo Parkway

Born in Philadelphia, on March 27, 1941, Philadelphia, PA . Walter Sigler became Bunny Sigler when as an infant, his mother discovered that he had a fully-grown front tooth. She commented that he looked just like a bunny rabbit and he was stuck with it

Yet another soul singer who started out in the gospel church at Helping Hand Rescue Mission and other churches. He joined a few Doo-Wap groups (the Opals) but his real ambition was to become a professional basketball player.

He had an accident and injured his leg, which put paid to such plans and he focused on singing. It was Leon Huff who saw him perform and subsequently signed a deal that lead to the release of his LP first releases, ‘Let The Good Times Roll’ & ‘Feels So Good’ on Cameo Parkway. His first single, “Girl Don’t Make Me Wait” was doing reasonably well but Cameo Parkway went out of business; the reason many of his tracks became difficult to acquire. Let The Good Times Roll was a thumping dance track very popular at Manchester‘s soul clubs in 1966/7/8/9 and so on. It was one of those recordings that had to be played over and over at the Allnighters when in first came out and is part of the sounds that eventually lead to the generation of the entire Northern Soul phenomenon.

He hung around at Gamble & Huff Productions, apparently he caused some annoyance and Kenny Gamble suggested he team up with Eugene Dozier and try to write some songs. Eventual this song writing push lead to him writing hundreds of published songs.

1970, Gamble & Huff Productions became Philadelphia International Records. Ugene Dozier left and ‘Bunny’ co-wrote with Phil Hurtt, Sunshine released as a follow up single for The O’Jays’ Backstabbers. And this writing duo wrote a song for:  Bunny + Cindy.

He continues to write and produce soul acts today.

Song Lyrics LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL – Bunny Sigler

Come on baby let the good times roll
Come on baby let me thrill your soul
Come on baby let the good times roll
Roll all night long
