    (April 26, 2014) We've learned from a Facebook post by legendary producer Tom Moulton that singer and songwriter Alfie Davison has died after a long illness. Davison had a notable career as both a songwriter for other artists as well as a headliner.

    Here is Tom's post:

    Singer, songwriter, Alfie Davison, passed away this past Easter Sunday, April 13th, after various medical complications. Davison was widely known, particularly in the U.K., for his songwriting achievements, namely the 1978 "pop / r&b" smash recording and song, "Who's Gonna Love Me", recorded by The Imperials, which reached number 5 on the Music World pop charts. He went on as both singer and songwriter of the 1980 "Northern Soul" classic, "Love Is Serious Business".

    In more recent times his "disco" song contribution, "Put Yourself In My Place" by TJM, was remixed by the "legendary", Tom Moulton, on Tom's 2011 CD album, "Philly ReGrooved 2", as well as two other recent previous appearances, on the 2011 "TJM" CD compilation, on Big Break Records, and an even earlier remix by Woody Bianchi on D-Vision in Italy.

    Producer and longtime friend, Reid Whitelaw, said that Alfie Davison was the most warmest, caring, gentle, and loving souls he ever knew.

    Alfie Davison will be missed, but he left some great songs behind.
