David Ruffin - Walk Away From Love - Music Video

David Ruffin, for all his flaws was an excellent singer, from his days in The Temptations to his solo career, his voice was unique and easy to recognize. 

It's hard to believe that here in the UK, 'Walk Away From Love' was his only hit! It spent 10 weeks in the charts peaking at #8.

David Ruffin's input to The Temptations was immense and certainly a major factor to it being their most successful line up. It's a shame that his frailties meant that he never achieved all he could have done, dying at just 50 on the 1st June 1991.

You can hear David on today's Sunday Shake Up Show - check it out at www.ontheradio.info.
