Robert Palmer - Some People Can Do What They Like (1976)

Makes great music and gives great covers - this one features strip poker win with Playboy gril Denise Michele.  Third in the trio of southern soul funk influenced albums that broke the mould for british soul boys - no one from these shores had done this sort of work before.  Little Feat were there again alongside stUnfortunately under appreciated in the face of later sounds of "Clues" (electronics) and "Secrets" (soft rock) and "Riptide" (80s power pop) - all good but working through the history of RPs releases is a quality journey worth embarking upon.  Of the three this was the point where he needed to change - it's good but the songs aren't so immediate.  The change was good as next came "Double Fun"....
