Why can't we live together - Mike Anthony

Mike Anthony entered the Dutch Top 40 on April 3, 1982 with his version of Timmy Thomas' 'Why can't we live together'. The chart run of this single was only two weeks, while in the second week it climbed to number 15.

The Jamaican DJ ran into some legal problems with this single, as it used samples of the original recording by Timmy Thomas without consent. Within two weeks, the single was withdrawn and replaced with a new version.

My collection: 7" single no. 2418
Found: Plaatboef, Leiden, July 22, 1995
Cost: 2 guilders
Tracks: 'Why can't we live together (part 1)' / 'Why can't we live together (part 2)'
