    Bunny Sigler Passed

    (SoulTracks, October 6, 2017) We are devastated to inform SoulTrackers of the death of Philadelphia soul legend Walter “Bunny” Sigler at age 76, following a massive heart attack. Few songwriters have influenced a genre like Bunny Sigler. The Philadelphia native and R&B pioneer was the force behind hits from the 60s and 70s. Instant Funk's "I Got My Mind Made Up," Patti Labelle's "Somebody Loves You Baby," The Whispers' "Bingo," Jackie Moore's "Sweet Charlie Babe," and The O'Jays "Sunshine" all came from the pen of Bunny Sigler.

    Man, this sucks. This man is a Philly Soul treasure. A fantastic writer and producer and an underrated singer. RIP Bunny, thanks for the jams.

    I checked out (albeit briefly) some of Bunny’s own recordings a while back, and they were great. And of course, he made so much fantastic music for others.

    RIP Bunny Sigler

    Bunny wrote and produced this wonderful tune for Jimmy Ruffin... his first hit after leaving Motown...



    (Been listening to this one a lot recently )

    Loved that song that I think was called "Feel So Good." It was a real rocker from the late 60s or early 70s.

    Oops, that not true... Bunny didn't do that one for Jimmy, he did "What You See Ain't Always What You Get"

    Oh that is so very true. He came from a musical family being related to Ira Tucker of the Dixie Hummingbirds and Tammi Terrell nee Montgomery. RIP Bunny.

    Unfortunately the great tracks he recorded for Neptune Records are largely forgotten, and are worth checking out on YouTube.

    RIP Bunny Sigler

    Bunny recorded a single with Dee Dee Sharp on the Philadelphia International label called "Conquer The World Together" b/w "We Got A Thing Going" in 1974. The single was issued as "David" Sigler and Dee Dee Sharp as Bunny was under contract to another label.

    Bunny had previously recorded "Conquer the World Together" as a duet with Cindy Scott on Neptune.

    glad you like that one TomTom!

    Bunny Sigler worked an entire album for The Pips in 1979. Tom Moulton got his hands on this cut:



    you can really hear the Philly in the strings and horns . Those parts were done in Philly , the rest in LA.

    There's a strange Instant Funk transition at 5:51 that takes over the song thereafter ....

    Bunny was amazing. First, from Tom Moulton, I find out that he was Italian (Bundino). Then, from Heikki, I find out he was Amish!
