We’re On Our Way Home (Part 1)
Journey Into The Light, 1978
This songs seems perfect as I and many other folks get ready to hit the road the holidays. I posted another song from this album a year and half ago but I recently recorded the entire LP and every few days, I’ve keep returning to it and thinking about how good it is and how sad it is that these guys didn’t get more recognition.
Admittedly, this track starts out a little non-descript but when the verse starts at 1:00, the lead vocals totally draw me in (Belita Woods, I know you are probably in your 50′s or 60′s now, but…can I holler at you? Oh wait, damn, you’re on myspace too? So I can holler at you…ok, now I’m shy). I know fame is only fractionally based on talent but I really feel like she could have been a contender. She could have at least been on a Betty Wright/Gwen McCrae level, they got nothin’ on her.
Songs are available for two weeks.
