Only The Strong Survive/ Just Because I Really Love You by Jerry Butler

 mp3 availablePlay mp3: Side A | Side B
Label: Mercury 72898 Year: 1969
Factory sleeve included
Condition: M- $15.00
Only The Strong Survive/ Just Because I Really Love YouThis is far from an obscure soul nugget (which I usually reserve the Classic 45s jukebox for), but I got serious goosebumps when playing it today and realized I just don't hear it often enough! Dave Marsh has it pegged just right, slipping it in the top 100 of his list of the 1,001 greatest singles of Rock'n'Soul — a triumph for both the singer and for the writer/producers and their nascent Philly Soul style. Note: This beautiful copy comes in a vintage Mercury Records factory sleeve. It has pristine Mint audio and nearly Mint labels and vinyl (styrene).
