Subject: Obit: Jim Seals (Seals & Crofts), 1941 - 2022
From: keberoxu

His birthname is James Eugene Seals. No details have yet been released about cause of death.
About five years ago Jim Seals suffered a stroke,
and has been unable since to make music or sing.
One report says he took up painting, however.
At latest report before the announcement of his passing,
he doted on his grandchildren
and said how proud he was of the way his adult children were raising their families.
He had one marriage only, to the former Ruby Jean Anderson,
and they had three children together.

Seals joined the Baha'i faith as a young adult and stuck with it.
Being a man of deep religious faith, he anticipated an afterlife,
and it is pleasing to think that he has now moved on to
what the Baha'is call the "Abha Kingdom",
from an Arabic world that means "glory."

Sad news.
His brother Dan who has also passed, was a follower of the Baha'i faithtoo.

I liked their stuff when I heard it, but can't say I followed them very closely.

Here's a discography:

TMZ got Flo Seals, a "sister-in-law"
(possibly the wife of Eddie Ray Seals, Jim's half-brother?)
to say a word or two.

It seems that Jim Seals was desperately ill.
He had been taken to hospital,
and his family had lined up at-home hospice care;
probably so that he could die at home rather than die in hospital.
The hospice nurse was in place at the home,
the family was waiting,
and Seals had been discharged from the hospital
and brought straight home.
He hung on long enough to get into his home
and died shortly after arrival.

RIP Mr. Seals. I love "Summer Breeze" and recall that you were once in The Champs of "Tequila" fame.

Sunday 12 June 2022, the Nashville Bahai's are assisting Jim Seals' family in
the memorial service.
Here's the link.

Obituary, Jimmy Eugene Seals

Although Seals was born and raised in Texas petroleum country,
his forebears came from Tennessee and
it was deeply meaningful for him to relocate to Nashville.
His home, I believe, is/was in Hendersonville, TN.

I did not have this information when I opened this obit thread.
It is from a post to a Kickstarter effort that was made
to record some Baha'i music.

The post is dated 2019, entered by composer Tom Price. Quote:


. . . a key participant, and composer of three of the songs, legendary Baha'i musician Jimmy Seals, suffered a massive stroke which nearly killed him at the age of 77, and left him without speech for nearly a year, rendering him permanently deaf in one ear. Not only was it essential to have him in the studio for all three of his compositions, but we particularly wanted him on the compact disc [recording] for obvious reasons. In the early 1980's, Ruhiyyih Khanum [the widow of the second and final Guardian of the Baha'i Cause] wrote a poem about the Persian martyrs, and asked Jimmy to set it to music and to record it. He had not done [anything like] this in nearly 40 years, and asked if together we could compose the music and include it in this project. Two years ago, I traveled to Nashville to compose the music with him, and although he had not sung for nearly a decade, he agreed to sing the solo on this very special rendition of Ruhiyyih Khanum's poem. Soon thereafter he suffered [another] stroke, and for some time we contemplated using another soloist, but finally three months ago we were able to record him in Nashville, in spite of his difficulty in hearing and of his weakness of voice.

I just took a pleasant dive down YouTube viewing different versions of Tequila. I didn't realize that was Seals. Like Joe, I liked their music when I heard it, but I didn't follow the arc of their musical career.
