Vinyl LP pressing. Digitally remastered edition. This is masterpiece. And we mean it. Beautiful golden-era soul written by Leon Sylvers III produced by Jerry Butler and Keg Johnson. The Sylvers were a family from Los Angeles who were very successful during the '70s and into the early '80s with chart hits - deep into pop-disco territory by then! - including 'Boogie Fever' 'Hot Line' and 'High School Dance'. This is the groups 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 acapella version of The Beatles 'Yesterday'. The Sylvers always provide a goldmine of samples. This album has been flipped by Madlib (for MF DOOM) Homeboy Sandman 50 Cent Ghostface Killah Black Milk Roc Marciano David Banner & 9th Wonder and more.
