The song is from Anderson's album Absence With Out Love (Epic, 1982.) Carl Carlton had a somewhat longer version on his Bad CC album, also released in 1982. I like the Anderson version better, however.
For an absolutely beautiful biography and more info about this versatile artist, please visit the website a devoted friend of his has dedicated to him.
Carl Anderson left this earth on February 23, 2004. May his soul rest in peace.
You all have a great Sunday!
