Song of the Week: "Why Can't I Touch You?" by Ronnie Dyson

The first time I heard this song, I thought a woman was singing. But no, it was Ronnie Dyson, one of those rarities in music who had an incredible vocal range.

Ronnie Dyson got his start at the age of 17 in the musical Hair. This is the title track from his debut album released two years later in 1970.

This song is from a musical called Salvation and is Dyson's first hit.

New episodes of the Vinyl Voyage Song of the Week can be heard every Wednesday, at 10 am and 10 pm (Central time/ -5 GMT) and at various other times during the week.

Take a listen to the song on vinyl below.
