And to mine to. First record I'd buy if I won a few quid on the lottery.

Been a constant in my top 3 all time favourites for many many years. 

It's quite unique in a way. Even though it just chugs along, the more you listen to it, the better it gets - to my ears.

Fantastic tune. We can make it happen good too, but not in same league as For Real.

A little overplayed for me but a classic all the same. I really like the Roy Ayers version, which finally got a 45 release earlier this year and would recommend that as a stop gap if your finances don't stretch to a Flowers original on LAX!!!

An early Southport had copies of this and "We can make it happen" (which is even better imo) at £10 each!

Got my copy of 'For Real' (large Centre) when Rod was playing Solid centre Copy at the Canal Tavern, Thorne Modern/Crossover Soul Nites, Then 'Got We Can Make It Happen' from Rod shortly afterwards again from Rod, i was given to understand that it was an Unreleased Tune that Rod made possible, may be wrong but that's how i seem to remember it, 2 Classic tunes it has to be said and forever in my play box and on my turntable at home, Wonderful Soul

I believe the solid centre record Rod played was We Can Make It Happen.

I'm a big fan of the Flip Dip 45 recorded by Flowers in the early 1970s.

Gareth any chance of a sound clip had no joy finding one myself.  Sounds interesting.

Yes a google search took me to an old soul source thread where this is discussed.
