Going Up, Going Down ...

Len Jewell - The Elevator Song

Your ever-lovin' Stepfather of Soul is back in Georgia after a trip to Chicago for a wedding. The drive back has left me pretty tired, but I just can't let a whole week pass with no posts!

I really don't know anything about Len Jewell and "The Elevator Song" except that it was a single on Pzazz in 1969. The tune is a fine piece of crossover soul, though, featuring Jerry Butler-tinged vocals from Jewell and a solid, sophisticated soul groove. I think the lyrics are outstanding.
