Sporting a nifty melody and a set of upbeat, self-empowerment lyrics that Curtis Mayfield effortlessly tossed off, 'Never Know What You Can Do (Give It a Try)' would not have sounded out of place on an Impressions album. Leroy Hutson's dry, snarling voice seldom sounded as good as on this track. The taunt strings and horns arrangement sounded like it was part of the Shaft soundtrack. Nice pick as a single, thought it should have been a much bigger hit.
