Carl Carlton – I Can Feel It (Back Beat)




Carl Carlton was born in Detroit in 1953. Carl’s early releases on the Lando and Golden World, under the name “Little Carl” Carlton, one presumes to cash in on fellow Detroit sensation, Stevie Wonder. In 68 Carl moved to Houston label Back Beat and released the classic Competition Ain’t Nothing Babe.

I Can Feel It was released in 1970 and is a great upbeat dancer. It starts off with a horn line, before being joined by the vocals and the rest of the instrumentation. There’s a great breakdown midway through, before building to the finale.
