Have you ever heard a sing and felt that the singer was plugged directly into your heart and was streaming out of your soul? Of course you have. This has been one of those songs for me. Especially during my early years as a partially closeted queer who was not really sure where I fit into the world. It's definitely in my top 10 favorite soul slow burners of the 60s.
Jackie Verdell recorded this while on break from The Davis Sisters, one of the most important gospel groups of the golden era. It was produced by Clyde Otis who had done similar sophisticated symphonic soul productions for Dinah Washington and Brook Benton. With Jackie's vocal in the mix, this record can't be called anything but DEEP SOUL, tapping into the deepest emotional insecurities in all of us.
Give it a listen to see if you can dig this deep.

I'm excited to highlight some of my favorite records in a variety of genres (soul, R&B, classic country, rockabilly, oldies, garage rock, etc). These won't all necessarily be "dance" records per se. They will all be records that I believe deserve a special listen. I simply love good music, rare or not. Hopefully you will spend some time here and love music right along with me! Lets give this a shot!
