Remembering Cecil Womack

Lost in the flood of news this week has been the death of CECIL WOMACK.
One of the illustrious Womack brothers (including Bobby), Cecil gained fame in the 1980s as WOMACK & WOMACK, performing with his wife Linda (the daughter of soul legend SAM COOKE -- an early mentor for the Womack brothers).
I only have one Womack & Womack song on iTunes, but it's a good one.
"LOVE WARS" reached No. 14 in the U.K. singles chart in 1984 and it's a great example of a rhythm-and-blues duet -- infused with plenty of soul.
Cecil Womack was 65.
