Thank you for sticking up for this song. I just got this LP and this song is the highlight. My favourite part is the extended instrumental section, it’s so full of beautiful jazz-flavoured tension, drama, and phenomenal playing – without losing that underlying funk.

The way that section starts, it suggests that the tape had been rolling for a little while before they did the edit – now, I would love to hear some extended outtakes from THAT session.

Another long Roberta tune I’m enjoying right now is “Suzanne” off the Killing Me Softly LP. I wish more artists would let themselves go and put more space in their music.

I couldn’t agree more. Feel like Making Love is a great album. Maybe the best of Flack in my opinion. “I can see the sun” is just one of really great and emotional songs there. It’s a masterpiece.
