You chose "Love Is My Destination" - that is from my idol, Hank Cosby!!
I get all excited when Mr Cosby gets a rare mention..

Man, has it really been that long? Nevertheless, Edwin's been missed. I'm glad to know that he was never forgotten & was able to receive some more love from his fans before he left.
RIP Edwin, we miss your songs!

"SOS"; "Stop her on Sight".
This is one of my favorites in addition to several of the others already mentioned.
And we can't forget "25 Miles"!
I used to flip the "45" of Agent Double O Soul on my "record player" and sing to the instrumental track. I thought I sounded pretty good :-) and still have that single.
I met Edwin at Golden World in the summer of '67 (maybe 66?) and he was the ultimate professional and gentleman to this snot nosed young punk.
Peace, Soul Master.

RIP Edwin...you are truly missed.
|By Dinelle (126.96.36.199) on Tuesday, March 30, 2004 - 08:20 pm:|
Oh! I loved 25 miles. Didn't Edwin die on the 19th anniversary of Marvin Gaye's death?
RIP You are miss dearly.
|By LadyMystique (188.8.131.52) on Tuesday, March 30, 2004 - 08:35 pm:|
Dinelle, close...Marvin died on 4/1/1984.
|By Dinelle (184.108.40.206) on Tuesday, March 30, 2004 - 10:24 pm:|
Well I was close.
|By LadyMystique (220.127.116.11) on Tuesday, March 30, 2004 - 10:28 pm:|
It's OK! And 25 MILES is one of my favorites as well as S.O.S.

R.I.P. Edwin & Marvin, thanks for the great music included in the soundtracks of our lives.
S.S.J. & J.S.

Even in his absence he is winning new fans.I hadn't listened much to his music until now.but i bought soulmaster/25miles,and i am hooked!
|By Don (126.96.36.199) on Wednesday, March 31, 2004 - 07:52 pm:|
Just before Mr. Starr's passing, he did release a live CD with a lot of his classics and a couple of new tunes. I found about his passing from Soul-Patrol. com. I don't wish the NS will dry up entirely due to ES's passing. Has It really been a year since his passing? I thought it's been 2-3 at least it seems. Well, at least we have Ruffin.

R.I.P MR CHARLES HATCHER AKA EDWIN STARR
|By Don (184.108.40.206) on Sunday, April 04, 2004 - 06:54 pm:|
Ooh Baby Baby the duet w/ Blinky Williams.
Did Blinky once was in James Brown's Revue?
|By STONEWALL (220.127.116.11) on Wednesday, April 07, 2004 - 05:48 am:|
EDWIN STARR -- like Mr. GAYE, exited much too soon!
TOP 7 STARRS:
* "TWENTY-FIVE MILES"
* "STOP THE WAR NOW"
* "AGENT DOUBLE-O-SOUL"
* "S.O.S. STOP HER ON SIGHT"
Note: MARTHA REEVES & EDWIN also cut a duet:
"You're All I Need To Get By"
One of my favorite occasions seeing EDWIN perform and us hangin out afterwards was when he was at THE COPACABANA in NY in 1971. And perform he did -- on stage and after! Great party! He was A-1.

Question asked re: E.S. -- here's the answer:
No, EDWIN did not die on the 19th anniversary of MARVIN's death; he died on the 64th ("When I'm 64") anniversary of Marvin's birthday!
