Limmie Snell

Limmie Snell is a soul singer born in Dalton, Alabama.

As Lemmie B. Good, he began recording at the age of 11 for Columbia Records, Mercury Records and Warner Bros. Records. Limmie and the Family Cooking was the name of the group he formed later.

The group had one single on Scepter Records before signing with Atco Records. In the UK the group recorded three hit singles, "You Can Do Magic" (#3 UK 1973), "Dreamboat," (#31 UK 1973) and a cover version of The Essex's "A Walkin' Miracle" (#6 UK 1974).

Later, he travelled to England and formed Limmie Funk Limited, a short lived band integrated musicians who later had success (big or little): Tony Mansfield, Nick Straker and Phil Towner who formed in 1977 the pioneer synthpop band New Musik, and the brothers Paul and Robert Simon, who later joined numerous new wave bands in the late 1970s and 1980s, like Neo, Girls At Our Best, Radio Stars, Cowboys International and Glen Matlock's Mavericks and Philistines in the case of Paul, and (also) Neo, Ultravox and Magazine in the case of the latter. But Snell's drug addiction ended the band, who toured England all 1976.
