“(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher” is an R&B song written by Gary Jackson, Carl Smith, R. Miner, and Raynard Miner, and produced by Carl Davis. The song was initially recorded by The Dells for the label, but not released. Another writer, Gary Jackson made some changes to the song and pitched it to Davis at Brunswick. When the singer recorded his vocal track, Davis recalls, Wilson originally sang the song “like a soul ballad. I said that’s totally wrong. You have to jump and go with the percussion… If he didn’t want to sing it that way, I would put my voice on the record and sell millions.” After hearing Davis’s advice, Wilson cut the lead vocal for “Higher and Higher” in a single take. We play the Rod Stewart version of this classic Jackie Wilson song, we hope you all enjoy it. Recorded 100% live at a recent Practice Session.
