Merry Clayton - Keep Your Eye on the Sparrow (1975)

When I found this record, I was shocked at how great the music sounded. She has a really great and unique voice. It's by far one of my favorite 70's records. Some Disco, some soul & some funk.

Tyrell,

Don't think I've heard this one - any chance for a small mp3 or something ?
Thanks ! Take care and Disco-on !

This was what is called a "filler". Not a hit, never a "Prime Time Player". Just a record to fill the time in between two better songs, and crossing your fingers that you don't lose the dance floor. Someone obviously thought it a special song. Good. More power to you, but you are like a Budweiser in a Beer House that has 400 different beers. Someone loves it, or they wouldn't have it!!
No offense intended, but the that is the truth!

I personally love this song. Made my top 50 for '73. A 45 rpm on Ode Records

I guess someone had to play it, it was a small hit , but I didn't touch it. I guess I missed the boat on this one!! That happens all the time, when a deejay misses the boat. This must have been my turn to miss. Regret it now!- Too many positive things being said, I was wrong.

Never mind what I wrote earlier. After Ray provided me with that listen, I COMPLETELY REMEMBER it now!! From the television show, "BARRETTA". Yes some people played this, not me. Never liked it, I DID NOT MISS ANY BOAT ON THIS ONE!!! Should I say what I want to say IT S##K#! Would not play it today either. NOT DISCO AT ALL, recorded as a "Standard", a la , Shirley Bassey or Frank Sinatra. Never intended for "DISCOS". But I know some deejays played it. While I was upstairs at BINGHAMPTON'S FERRY BOAT, downstairs, DJ Eddie "The Worm" Rothstein played it downstairs. He would not LOSE the floor entirely, but the floor was a little emptier!! Not my cup of tea!! Thank Ray, for stirring the Brain Cells!!- PETE

The original version from the show! I think that Sammy's stage show is much better on this version. He looks great!!

Yes there were deejays that played that song. I am not sure why? It is a poor song. I heard the Sammy Davis version played too. Neither one belonged in a DISCO! A place in Jersey called FIRE&ICE would play this all the time. The floor would empty! Can't imagine a great club playing this, it is lame!

It's a good song....for a television show but not for the dancefloor. A lot of showtunes from BITD are still very cool to hear !

I played it on radioshows but not in the clubs. But I did like "Baretta". I'm gonna check if it's on DVD!
