This is Real Soul!

Jerry Washington - Right Here Is Where You Belong

Today's selection comes from the second volume of the Ace/AVI series "The Heart of Southern Soul" and is one of the best '70s deep soul singles I've ever heard. Jerry Washington starts with a somewhat-hokey staged dialogue but then launches into a pleading monologue that almost takes on the tones of a sermon before moving into the gospel-tinged ballad.
