      Beautiful, golden-era soul written by Leon Sylvers III, produced by Jerry Butler and Keg Johnson. The Sylvers were a familyfrom Los Angeles who were very successful during the 70’s and into the early 80’s, with chart hits - deep into pop-disco territory by then! - including ‘Boogie Fever’, ‘Hot Line’ and ‘High School Dance’.This is the group’s second album, from 1973, and is one of their strongest. Opening with the awesome mid-tempo ‘We Can Make It If We Try’ the record moves through funk, boogie and deep soul moods, finishing on a hazy, acapellaversion of The Beatles ‘Yesterday’.

      A true funk-soul masterpiece. Sampled by Madlib, Homeboy Sandman,
      Ghostface Killah, Black Milk, Roc Marciano, 9th Wonder and more!
