September 14, 1998 "the Tan Canary" passes away. He started out as a gospel singer but went on to perform blues, soul, county, and jazz. In 1968 he covered the country standard "Release Me"
and it became a hit. His audience grew, but stardom outside of his home in New Orleans was not to be his.Tom Surowicz pointed out in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, "Adams could sing sophisticated jazz. He could sing sentimental pop, or stirring gospel. He had precious few peers when tackling Southern deep-soul classics. And on the right night, with the right band, he all but owned the blues."
I Won't Cry
was his first hit 1959, and from the same site Part Of Me
His song Hell Yes I Cheated
is featured on an interesting compilation called More Dirty Laundry: The Soul of Black Country
