JImmy Gresham is Free

On Tuesday Feb. 21st 2012 Jimmy Gresham was released from a Florida prison. Many say he was wrongly convicted and not given a fair trial. He has spent over twenty years in prison. He was originally doing 30 with no chance of parole and due to a fluke change in Florida laws, was released. Jimmy is  from Ft Walton and recorded at Playground as well as released other records with other companies.

Sir Shambling's Deep Soul Website is here http://www.sirshambling.com/artists/jimmy_gresham/jimmy_gresham.html. In 2007 Some of Jimmy's deep voiced soul recordings were included in "Soul Resurrection" The Playground Story Vol. 1 which led to his version of "No Way To Stop It", also recorded at Playground, being used in 2009's "Friday The 13th" film. For those of you who may not be hip to Jimmy, check his wiki link here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jimmy_Gresham.. another site to check  is http://saleomatic.com/Jimmy/

This is a hell of a story.. Jimmy has one of the best soul voices ever... a big congratulations to Jimmy and his family

    I played drums in Jimmy's band The Family Circle in Ft. Walton Beach, FL circa 1972. His brothers Willie and Bubba were also in the band. I hope any one of them will contact me to say hello!
