Hal Davis - Herman Griffith

From the 1971 album All By Myself, this was Eddie's first solo album. The song "Can I" was done by Motown's Brenda Holloway in the sixties. Eddie's producer, Frank Wilson, thought the song would be perfect for Eddie. Wilson added the uptempo section and Eddie added the spoken segments almost right on the spot.
