Garfield Fleming - Let's turn in early

Garfield Fleming Ruffin was born in 1953 and raised in Philadelphia. He began writing songs to display his vocal ability. He has a fantastic voice and in my opinion he is one of the best singers of soul music. He has also performed with world class artists as diverse as Bobby Womack, Billy Paul, William Hart of the Delfonics, Mr.Big Ronald Isley, Jerry Butler, Major Harris and many well known artists.
He became known in the early 80s when he released a single as a 7 incher and 12 incher respectively entitled "Don't send me away / You got dat right" on Becket Records. Mainly the song "Don't send me away" is one of the best dance songs ever.

However many people don't really know that some years later Garfield Fleming released one more single entitled "Let's turn in early" on Gimme Five Records. This song was written and produced by David Morris and Roger Carl Meltzer. It was recorded at Music City in Cherry Hill, N.J.

Many years later he was the newest member of the legendary group The Delfonics.
