From the “Soul Summit” at the Royal Festival Hall
I Can Understand It
This song was written by Bobby Womack and included in his Understanding album, released in 1972. It has been a favourite in the Kokomo set list since the early days, usually as the last pre-encore number, featuring the band’s soloists (notably Jim Mullen) and some Frank Collins ad hoc choreography.
An edited version was released as single in US (Columbia 3-10145), with Feeling’ This Way on the B side.
This pairing was also used as for promotion purposes in UK (CBS 3379).
Below Zero’s new wave R&B. which ripped through their ‘Greatest hits’ with a ferocity which almost equalled PIL. Below Zero aren’t bad musicians, but they’re all Rhythm and precious little Blues. The lead guitarist plays good rock’n’roll oh a nice 335. but their ‘R&B’ seems to attract headbanging dummies but for some uptown top skanking.
