SoulTracks Lost Gem: David Pack, James Ingram and Michael McDonald "Can't Let Go"

David Pack may not be an obvious addition on a site devoted to Soul Music. After all, a guy best known as the voice behind mellow pop hits like "Holding On To Yesterday" and "You're the Only Woman" as part of the group Ambrosia wouldn't exactly be expected to be listed between the O'Jays and the Persuasions.

But Pack showed his real soul on his solo debut album Everywhere You Go, where he teamed with Michael McDonald and James Ingram on a career gem, a mournful soulful ballad called "I Just Can't Let Go." Urban radio didn't touch it until Patti Austin covered it several years later, but it was one of 1985's best soul songs and a true SoulTracks Lost Gem.
