Today's piece of Lost Jewelry from the Vaults at Oldiez 93 for Friday, July 21st, 2017 comes from Jose Feliciano!
On August 3rd, 1968, "Light My Fire" , written by and originally recorded by The Doors, entered Billboard's Top 40 and burned its way to #3, spending three weeks in third place and eleven weeks in the Top 40.
Jose Feliciano, born on September 8th, 1945 in Lares, Puerto Rico and raised in Spanish Harlem, New York is a singer/guitarist and has been blind since birth.
Jose Feliciano placed two songs in the Top 40, both in 1968. The Christmas classic, "Feliz Navidad", never charted at all, though he is probably best known for that song.
