Can't Take My Eyes Off You / Now I'm A Woman - Nancy Wilson

Can't Take My Eyes Off You / Now I'm A Woman
Released in 1970, CAN’T TAKE MY EYES OFF YOU continued a tradition that had been the staple of Nancy’s late ‘60s albums for Capitol Records by taking contemporary compositions of the day – such as ‘A Brand New Me’(a hit for Jerry Butler and Dusty Springfield), Leonard Cohen’s ‘Suzanne’ and ‘You Made Me So Very Happy’ (a hit for Brenda Holloway and for Blood, Sweat & Tears) – and giving them her own distinctive treatment. The title track – Nancy’s reading of the Frankie Valli & Four Seasons’ hit single – was originally on her 1969 LP "Hurt So Bad,” receiving such strong US airplay that it was also used for the 28th album she recorded since 1959.
Looking for a new approach, Nancy, longtime producer David Cavanaugh and Capitol Records hired the then-up-and-coming Philly-based production team of Kenny Gamble & Leon Huff to oversee her 1971 recording NOW I’M A WOMAN. Working with arrangers Thom Bell, Bobby Martin and Lenny Pakula, the LP featured a mix of R&B-oriented songs (some written specifically for Nancy) and contemporary hits of the day such as ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ and ‘Make It With You.’
Joining ALL IN LOVE IS FAIR/COME GET TO THIS (SMCR-5010) and THIS MOTHER’S DAUGHTER/I’VE NEVER BEEN TO ME (SMCR-5041) in the SoulMusic Records’ reissue of Nancy’s great recordings for Capitol, this expanded edition of CAN’T TAKE MY EYES OFF YOU/NOW I’M A WOMAN (both making their worldwide CD debut) includes three bonus tracks from the Gamble & Huff sessions and stellar notes by renowned US writer A.Scott Galloway includes new quotes from Kenny Gamble and Bobby Martin.
