Palmer released his first solo album 'Sneakin' Sally Through the Alley' recorded in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1974, was heavily influenced by the music of Little Feat and the funk fusion of The Meters who acted as backing band along with producer/guitarist Lowell George. Both the album and single reached the Top 100 in the US. Of note is the fact that "Sailin' Shoes" (the album's first track), Palmer's own "Hey Julia" and the Allen Toussaint-penned title track carry virtually the same rhythm, and were packaged on the album as a "trilogy" without a pause between them.

Relocating from London to New York with his wife, Palmer released 'Pressure Drop' in November 1975 (featuring Motown bassist James Jamerson). An album that displayed his interests in reggae and rock music, He toured with Little Feat to promote that album.

That brings us to this album 'Some people can do what they like' the extensive line-up for this album included, Robert Palmer - vocals, Chuck Rainey - bass, Paul Barrere - guitar, background vocals, Chilli Charles - timbales, Pierre Brock - bass, Greg Carroll - harmonica, Sam Clayton - percussion, background vocals, Robert Greenidge - steel drums & pans, Freddie Harris - guitar, Richard Hayward - drums, Carol Kaye - guitar, Jody Linscott - percussion, Conductor, Jeff Porcaro - drums, Bill Payne - keyboards, background vocals, James Allen Smith - keyboards, Freddie Wall - guitar, Michael "Spider" Webb - drums, William D. "Smitty" Smith - keyboards, Arthur Smith - ocarina, penny whistle.
Musically it follows on from the first two albums (not a bad thing) being once again a quirky mix of New Orleans/Reggae/Caribbean/with touches of rock music.

Well if you checked the reviews that I wrote on the other Robert Palmer re-issues by Edsel (aka the worst scammers in the music industry) you know the story by now but just in case here it is again.

I am returning these CDs as they are made from mp3 files. Confirmed by the hard frequency cut at 16KHz. I ran Tau Analyzer and each track on both CDs is reported as made from mp3.
I bought the Aztec Camera Edsel re-issues and I had to return them as well. They were full of glitches and errors. I am not going to buy any Edsel product ever again.

I have bought the other three new Robert Palmer sets as well and I have already checked all of them and they are all made from mp3 files.

WHY I THINK THESE MP3 SOURCED CDS DESERVE ONE STAR:
- Edsel doesn't state anywhere that the CDs are sourced from compressed files. Even if they had a particular reason to do so (which they didn't) they should have stated the fact in the notes. Their business practices are deceitful.
- Regardless of the fact that these CDs might be pleasurable to someone, removing all high frequency information has an impact on the audio quality that you will notice if you play them on a decent stereo system
- If you want to rip the CDs to mp3 files again to carry the music on a ipod/phone/etc you will have to run the mp3 compression a second time, which will result in very clearly noticeable audio degradation. This in itself is a reason why CDs should never be sourced from already compressed files.

One of the best albums Robert Palmer made. Not quite up to Sneaking Sally or Pressure Drop for funkyness and memorabillity but nearly there. Still cannot understand why this album has not be re-released as all his others have. A mystery.

with the retro sleeve packaging, one for palmer fans, no hits but good quality with his quirkiness shining through on this early solo effort
