Random Music: "Papa Was A Rolling Stone" by Mr. Groove Featuring Darryl Johnson

To continue along on the "This TOWN Has TALENT" string, this week's random music features one of the competitors in Friday night's competition, and a good friend of mine, Darryl Johnson. I've known Darryl for about a year now. He is one of the regular talents found at Cobalt's Sunday Night Karaoke. The man is a sweetheart and he can sing. (So, for those of you who thought that my comment about the bar being set high was unnecessary gloating, wait until you hear this man. Then you'll know what I was really talking about.)

Darryl was invited to provide the lead vocal track to Mr. Groove's cover of The Temptations' classic "Papa Was A Rolling Stone" on their album Little Things. Kids, he brought it! (See this review of the album.) Take a listen to the track, then check out the "making of" video.
