During the sixties, the group released a string of excellent singles, but never achieved the massive success they deserved as a group; however, the Womack brothers' composition "It's All Over Now" became a massive hit for the Rolling Stones.
The group grieved the turmoil of Cooke's death, the drama of Bobby Womack's marriage to Cooke's widow, and, shortly after the release of this record, Harry Womack's murder.
"I Can Understand It" had been cut a few years earlier in an incredible solo take by Bobby Womack, yet this group version (minus Bobby, who was not working with the group due to his solo success) somehow surpasses it (or at the very least equals it). An incredibly intense, powerful record capped off with those incredible vocals from the Womack brothers.
