This Is The House (Where Love Died)
What made me realize I was hooked when I started listening to soul music was when I could get into 70s soul. I had never been a fan of any 70s sound, save for some punk rock. It all seemed so overdone and processed. Well that all changed one day, and it happened to be due to this 45: First Choice's "This Is The House (Where Love Died)" on Scepter.
A real driving tune, "This Is The House" has a bit of a groove to it, too. It rests pretty much on the bassist's shoulders, or fingers, for that matter, and complements the steady beat. That and the vocals are great. But don't take my word for it, you can check it out here.
