Johnny Mathis originally recorded this in 1973 but his version flopped. Later that year, Wilson recorded it with a stronger bass line and more powerful vocals, and it became a hit.
Wilson is a Soul singer and drummer who was a member of The Rollers in the early '60s before going solo. His first solo hit was "The Snake" in 1968. His other hits were "La La Peace Song" and "I've Got a Feeling (We'll Be Seeing Each Other Again)." (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England, for above 2)
