(As a side note, Matthew heard this track and gently informed the duo that, although he found the cover version 'interesting' and 'flattering', he considers his arranging part of the songwriting  process and he didn't really care for the version.)


RB: From the day he bought Matthew Fisher's self-titled third solo album, Rick knew immediately that he'd record Can't You Feel my Love? one day in an acoustic setting. It sounded like a 'folk song' to him. After a several-year stretch when Rick and John were writing together, but John had dropped out of the performing end, they reunited as a duo and began to record the Bellaire & Dunn album. Deciding the theme would be a 'coming-of-age' cycle focusing on the difficulties of maintaining relationships in the modern age, the song was a natural for inclusion and was the first song recorded for the album.
