So Far Away was recorded in late 1963 and was a small hit in January 1964 on the American Sue label. Michael Jack Kirby of WayBack Attack says: “After “So Far Away,” Hank Jacobs continued his session work and can be heard at the piano on a number of well-known mid-’60s records, including soulful sides like “I’m So Thankful” by The Ikettes and Bettye Swann’s chart-topping 1967 R&B hit “Make Me Yours.””
Billboard US Pop No 91, 1964.
