Hello everyone,

I don't know much about Northern Soul, but someone had asked me about this particular artist. He made a song called "I'd Think It Over" & "Friday Night".

Does anyone know if he's still alive & if so, does he continue to make records & reside in the US? Any info will be greatly appreciated!

Peace!

Hi Common,

I've no idea if Sam's still with us but as far
as I know he hasn't had a record released since
around '69.

I think he was from Chicago originally, "I'd Think
It Over" was on VeeJay's Tollie subsidiary,but
may have moved to the west coast in the late sixties as his last known release was on Vault,
an LA label.

Common,
I think I have a piece or interview with Sam somewhere,not positive,but will look.
As for 'Id Think it over' this has a lot of great personal memories for me all-nighters wise.
What a track.I think a small piece from this track is featured on a uk commercial.
For the record,
Sam Fletcher-I'd Think it over-Friday Night-Tollie records(no.9012)currently valued around the 200/250ish pound mark.
And as Davie rightly mentioned on the Vault record Label,
Sam Fletcher-More today than yesterday-What'll I Do-Vault records(no.502)and around the 10/15 pound mark.
Mel.

I have another single of his on Vee-Jay, "Who Can I Turn To" b/w "You're Next". Probably would appeal to the Belgian crowd.

He also recorded for RCA.

Best,

Mark

Sam Fletcher was more prolific than I thought
- I have 17 singles listed for him.

He seems to have started out around 1958 on MGM's
Metro label then was transferred to their Cub label. From Cub he went to RCA for five or six singles then to Tollie then Veejay finishing up
at Vault.

Most of the stuff looks very middle-of-the -road
going by the titles.

Thanks so much everyone. Someone asked me about him & wanted to know whether he was still around. As usual, SD gang comes through once again! Thanks a lot!

Peace!
