This essential soul 7" brings together two exceedingly hard-to-find 1970s classics for the very first time. On the A-side you'll find Connie Laverne's deliciously sweet and soaring "Can't Live Without You", a 1974 cut that sits somewhere between classic dancefloor soul and the then emerging Philadelphia International, proto-disco sound. On the flip you'll find another low-down, orchestrated slice of proto-disco perfection from New Jersey duo the Anderson Brothers. While nowhere near as tricky to track down as Laverne's A-side, "I Can See Him Losing You" is nevertheless similarly inspired and should be in the collection of every serious soul enthusiast.
