C&L's Late Night Music Club With Hall & Oates

This song, a blue-eyed soul slow jam, was released as the single off of Hall & Oates third lp, Abandoned Luncheonette in 1974 to little success...But after Tavares had at #1 hit with it on the soul charts in the same year (Lou Rawls also recorded it in '74), and the success of Hall & Oates Sara Smile in 1975, Atlantic Records re-released She's Gone in '76, seeing it hit #7 on the pop charts.

I'm not a big fan of Blondie & The 'Stache's pop-ier, chart-topping hits of the '80s, but this earlier work...Well, it keeps me from begrudging them the success they had later.
