Profile in Words (by Alan Smith) and Picture (by Barry Peake) of JIMMY RUFFIN, Former Rootes Car Worker

Alan Smith, New Musical Express, 17 December 1966

JIMMY RUFFIN is a tall, sad-looking figure, who looks as if he's speaking from experience when he asks: 'What Becomes Of The Brokenhearted?'. He doesn't have much to say for himself, either ("I'm somewhat quiet," says Jimmy mournfully, "though not as quiet as some people make out.")
