Louise Freeman 'I Can Do It (If I See It)

Recommended Posts

Killer record.. Always assumed it would have been played at Blackpool Mecca.Fits right in with 'Love Factory'; 'Seven Day Lover', etc...

 I think I have also heard or read that it was known on the pre-disco, underground scene in New York ...

.If so, can't think why it is so overlooked / under-rated as for me, it holds own with anything from that era!

Any thoughts?

 

Gorgeous deep soul b-side too:

 

 For further info, the version of 'I Can Do It.' on UK London is a different, and better, mix than the original on Shout.

Not forgetting of course, it was also raved about in Blues & Soul by Dave Godin.

Can't say as I can recall it ever getting plays in the clubs at the time - or since.

 

What's the difference with the UK and US copies then? UK London promo and a German Bellaphon with picture cover for me!

Now the other side... that is a beauty isn't it!

And sat right along side it is her Playboy 45 "Save your love" from a couple o' years later (1977).

Sadly no You Tube clip available.

Only her later re-make on Ichiban as far as I can see Derek - not anywhere near as good is it?

Don't care too much for the a side but the flip is beautiful. New to me.

I also bought it as a new release and played it out once or twice, with little success, but on flipping it over instantly fell in love with the stunning 'How Could You Run Away'. A truly great record that has stood the test of time.

To be honest John, I can't remember Dave raving over this one, but it wouldn't surprise me if he had. Certainly right up his street.

Cheers and all the best.

The a side doesn't get any needle time in my record room, however  'How Could You Run Away' is different gravy!!

True to form! 

I love good gravy nearly as much as good soul music. :rolleyes:

It needs to be deep, silky, rich brown and super tasty!
