    Heard an interesting song "You Can Do Magic"

    On my TV music channels tonight, they played a song entitled You Can Do Magic, by an artist named Limmie and Family Cooking. It was kind of catchy and the lead vocalist had a high range similar to Deniece Williams or Felice Taylor. I had never heard of this song, so what is the scoop on it?

    Unfortunately, I have not heard this. Perhaps it is a takeoff of Could This Be Magic by the Dubs on the End label.

    It was a hit in the UK, at a time when so many pop/soul tracks were played on the radio and in general discos.

    The lead singer was Limmie Snell.

    The followup, "Dreamboat", reached #31 in the UK in October 1973.

    Their next and final hit was a revival of The Essex's record "A Walkin' Miracle". It reached #6 in the UK in April 1974.

    Limmie was male and Jimmie was female, but a lot of people mistakenly thought that it was the other way round.

    Jimmie was the lead vocalist on this track.
