Share this article

    In the break-up, blue eyed soul song “The Walk,” Jimmie Ross sings to his fine looking long legged but cheating woman, "So long you did me wrong… You can walk your long legs, baby, right out of my life."  In Pittsburghese he cries “You've been jaggin me around now.  I kept my eyes shut Because you're shaped like an hourglass, but I think the time's up.” 

    "The Walk" is the new single release from The Jaggerz, who are best known for their number 1 hit “The Rapper”.  Originally signed and produced by Philadelphia International legends Gamble and Huff in 1968, the Jaggerz return to their soul music roots with “The Walk.”  On hearing the song, recorded previously by Mayer Hawthorne, Jimmie Ross said “that is the Jaggerz from 1968. We gotta do this song. It sounds like it was written for us." 

    "The Walk" will be the title song of their forthcoming album to be released in the Spring of 2014. It is also our newest SoulTracks First Listen. Check it out below and tell us what you think!
