down but not out

Bobby Caldwell's 1978 eponymous album for Clouds is a very smooth groove; a finely tuned and very well produced mix of R'nB, Disco and Soul. It's an easy find, which is why I might have skipped over it a few times while digging in dusty crates, although each time remembering that I had always liked 'What You Wont Do For Love'. I'm putting up 'Down For The Third Time' which turns out to be the gem at the end of the journey; a rolling with the punches Soul Disco item which has more than a little of the Steely Dan about it (could it have been an influence?). Just digging it...
