The group used slightly fuller and more pop-savvy arrangements on their second LP, without tinkering much with their basic approach. This is especially apparent on the album's two hit singles (the title track and "Look What You've Done"), which sound like attempts to invest coffeehouse folk with the grandiose pop-rock structure of "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'." The similarity of both tracks to that Righteous Brothers classic is really too evident to escape comment, especially given that the trio had covered the song on their previous album. Elsewhere they opted for more up-to-date cover material than they had for their debut LP, offering versions of songs by Phil Ochs, Tim Hardin, and Gordon Lightfoot. In 1996, I Can Make It with You was reissued on CD in tandem with their previous album, Time.
