The idea for the Bobby Womack hit "Woman's Gotta Have It" came from a marital situation that songwriter Darryl Carter knew of where the wife was about to "tip out" on an unresponsive husband. Carter met Womack when Carter was an engineer at Memphis' American Sound Studios in the '60s. During that time, he and Linda Womack wrote "Woman's Gotta Have It" with Jackie Wilson in mind. Produced by Bobby Womack, "Woman's Gotta Have It" went to number one R&B and number 60 pop in the summer of 1972. It was on his Understanding LP which peaked at number seven R&B and number 43 while spawning the singles "Harry Hippie," his cover of the Neil Diamond hit "Sweet Caroline," and the popular radio-aired LP cut "I Can Understand It" is covered by L.V. on his How Long and on Shock of the Mighty 1969-74  by Lee "Scratch" Perry.
