"Bobby" of JAMES & BOBBY PURIFY died last Thursday in Tallahassee. Some of my old DHS buds in Tallahassee asked me about his original group, THE DOTHAN SEXTET. Well, here a link to an interview with Pensacola's PAPA DON SCHROEDER where he describes how he discovered singer James Purify & guitarist Robert Lee Dickey of THE DOTHAN SEXTET @ Tom's Tavern & took them to Muscles Shoals to cut Dan Penn & Spooner Oldham's I'M YOUR PUPPET. According to Justo, Papa Don, a man who was "raised in a wonderful Christian family" & was always taught "that your word is your bond" STILL owes THE CANDYMEN money!
