The O'Jays released many singles on several labels throughout the '60's, practically all of which are fantastic. While the group never had the massive hit they deserved through the period, they soldiered on- one amazing performance at a time
This type of career longevity before success is practically unheard of in today's music scene.
On this track, Eddie Levert (who also wrote the song) delivers a heartfelt, powerful performance that is the epitome of soul. His fellow O'Jays harmonize so beautifully behind him, and the drummer powers along in a way that takes this ballad into territory that a ballad typically does not go.
