December 6, birthday of Linda Creed (1948-1986)

Since July, I have been concentrating solely on female composers.  You can read about that in my post from July 19.  If I can’t find one born on the calendar day, I won’t post.  On with today’s composer.

From Wikipedia: “Linda Diane Creed (December 6, 1948 – April 10, 1986) also known by her married name Linda Epstein, was an American singer-songwriter and lyricist who teamed up with songwriter-producer Thom Bell to produce some of the most successful Philadelphia soul groups of the 1970s.”

I loved the Rubber Band Man as a teenager, and Break Up to Make Up. The Greatest Love of All was written by Creed while she was battling the breast cancer that ended up claiming her life.
