The Foundations' front man Clem Curtis dies

The original lead singer of the British band The Foundations, Clem Curtis, has died at the age of 76.

Curtis, who lived in Olney, Buckinghamshire, was singer on the band's 1967 number one hit Baby, Now That I've Found You.

The song is claimed to be the first chart-topper by a British multi-racial band.

The band were regulars on the bill at Cali Reunion Discos in Dunstable, run by Sid Hudson.

Speaking to BBC Three Counties Radio's Roberto Perrone, he said Curtis was "an early pioneer of soul music" in Britain.
