Can I change my Mind was initially the B side of his first release, A Woman Needs to Be Loved. It went gold in 1968. His other No. 1 came in 1975, called Turning Point. His last charting song was Flashing Back in 1988, but he had a successful live career up until the stroke that eventually killed him in 2005. He left behind a widow, Ann, to whom he’d been married for 40 years, and children and grandchildren.
