Song of the Day: Lou Rawls, “You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine” #rmf

Chicago’s very own Lou Rawls recorded for Philadelphia International Records during the mid-to-late ’70’s, on which label he had the most success of his career with the Gamble & Huff song "You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine." Released in 1976, it reached #1 on the R&B and Easy Listening chart, #4 on the Dance chart, and #2 on the Hot 100, kept from the top spot by "You Should Be Dancing" by The Bee Gees and "(Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty" by KC & The Sunshine Band. It sold a million copies and was certified Gold by RIAA, and it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.

  1. Lou Rawls is so smooth. So many good renditions of fine songs. But then he is an 82nd Airborne brother-in-arms. He was at the end of his stint in the 82nd when I started mine. When I found that out I followed him much closer.

    1. Living in Chicago, we had all seen him on TV and knew who he was, but for some reason this was the first song we heard on the radio unless we listened to one of the R&B stations. That was a shame. He’d been recording since at least 1965 and his music had universal appeal.
