It takes some balls to take on a song of this magnitude and come out with your heads held high as Bad Touch step up for their version of ‘Can’t You See’ from The Marshall Tucker Band, first released in 1973. The original was sublime and credit is due to Bad Touch for capturing that vibe with a heartbreaking performance.
It’s a heavier version musically as they muscle it up but not to the point of suffocating the emotions raised in this glorious song. Lead vocalist Stevie Westwood oozes soul throughout as he captures the moment of love lost perfectly with a gospel like delivery and the band show they are no slouches with full on backing vocals that are uplifting to say the least.
The first guitar solo is poignant and an acapella midsection precedes a holler from Stevie of “That’s right, gimme some more of that guitar right now” which heralds a solo of sheer beauty as the song fades out making you want more from these fantastic five minutes.
You can catch Bad Touch when they hit the road for the appropriately named Better Late Than Never UK Tour between November/December 2021.
