Bring It On Home To Me and Having A Party were the A and B sides of RCA Victor 8036. One of the greatest two-sided singles in pop history! Although they both broke on the R&B charts at the same time, "Party" started its climb up the pop charts a full month before "Home." Essentially, "Party" hit first and "Home" became a hit as "Party" was waning. Apparently, the down home gospel vibe of "Home" delayed its acceptance at mainstream radio.
