Edwin Starr 1942-2003

Phast Phreddie Patterson, Rock's Backpages, April 2003

SOUL SINGER Edwin Starr (61) died of a heart attack at his home in central England on April 2. Edwin Starr was one of Soul Music's finest singers of all time. His records for the Ric-Tic label ('Agent Double-0 Soul,' 'Headline News,' 'Back Street,' 'Stop Her on Sight (S.O.S.)' and 'I Have Faith in You') are all fabulous.
