“For Your Precious Love” by Jerry Butler

21 09 2013

Here’s a classic love song from 1958.

Musically, I hear so much in this song. The high backing vocals remind me of a lot of early Jamaican hit singles of the 1960s. And Jerry “Iceman” Butler’s vocals are the ancestor of many of the great soul hits of the 60s.

By the way, besides being a singer, Butler is also a commissioner of the Cook County board in Illinois (the county that contains Chicago). He’s held that post since 1985, according to Wikipedia. That’s kind of cool.
