"Make It Easy on Yourself" by Jerry Butler

I love Jerry Butler. He is the "Iceman" and one of the most underrated soul artists of the 60s and 70s. Although he is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he is there as a member of the Impressions, but not as a solo artist. This needs to be corrected.

The Song of the Week is one of his first hits on the pop charts, written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David: "Make It Easy on Yourself."  Scroll down to see him perform a live version of this song.

I am not sure when this version was recorded, but her is Jerry Butler performing the song live, along with several others.
