Robert Tillman - "Thinking of You (Nothing Takes The Place Of You)"

Have you heard of Robert Tillman?  I don't know a lot of his work but I fell in love with Thinking of You some years ago.  I recently heard it on the radio and it brought back some great memories.  In this 1992 song, all he can do is think about his girl - every time he turns around he thinks about her and says that nothing takes the place of her.

Here's part of his bio as found at Soul Blues Music ( Tillman started singing with a band called Wisdom and worked with the late McKinley Mitchell.  Tillman became a lead vocalist with the energetic Freedom Band and later as lead singer for the "Drells" which was formerly known as Archie Bell and the Drells.  With this association, Robert Tillman performed in concert halls with the Temptations, Harold Melvin and The Blue Notes, and many more well known vocal groups. Tillman released his debut album, "Thinking of You," which became an instant winner and helped him establish his solo career.
