Gail used one of her original compositions, a song entitled What Can I Say, as the
title for this album. It garnered two Top 20 hit singles, Boys Like You (written by Gail and Walker Igleheart) and You're A Hard Dog To
Keep Under The Porch (written by Suzanna Clark and Harlan Howard).
Also featured on this album singing a duet with Gail on It's You Alone (written by Gail's older brother
Ron Davies) is a very young Ricky Skaggs. Ricky had just won the CMA Award for Best Male Vocalist and was kind enough to join Gail in the
studio for this duet. Ricky also played all of the fiddle parts on It's You Alone. This song was released as a radio single just as Gail was leaving
Warner Bros. Records to sign with RCA. Subsequently, the single did not receive much, if any, support from her previous record label.
Gail's production, featuring the Muscle Shoals Horns on Ray Charles' Hallelujah, I Just Love Him So
and Mark Knopfler's Settin' Me Up, was a departure from her earlier recordings. That, along with various personal issues made the production of this
album much more difficult. Gail's son, Chris Scruggs, was five months old at the time. Chris sat in his car seat on top of the recording console while his mother
produced this album. I guess you could say he was born to be in the studio.
Although currently out of print, this vinyl LP can still be obtained at vintage record stores like
the Great Escape or Jack Lawrence Record Shop in Nashville : 615/256-9240. You can also receive a FREE CD of this album when you join Gail's International fanclub.
