The fourth album from Bill Withers and an overlooked gem recorded for Sussex – and a great bit of funky soulful stuff in the best Withers tradition – a record that's sadly kind of withered in relative obscurity for far too many years! The soul in Withers voice is in as fine of form as ever on this set, and for us, this has earned its steadily growing reputation as his lost masterpiece. The material has a conversational, wise and world weary tone that's brilliantly effective and more intimate than Bill's bigger hits of the day – and the arrangements are more centered around soulful and lightly funky keys than the more acoustic guitar driven rhythms that got him more radio play on earlier hits. There's also some subtly innovative parts to the production that are really moving, from the harp accented piano on "Stories" and the funky percussion flavored rambler of a closing number "Railroad Man". Other tracks include You", "The Same Love That Made Me Laugh", "Heartbreak Road", "Green Grass", "Ruby Lee", "Can We Pretend", "Liza" and "Make A Smile For Me". (Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear, with a partially unglued bottom seam.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Out Here On My Own
ABC, 1973. Very Good
Fantastic soul from Lamont Dozier – his first LP as a solo artist, and one of the best debuts of the 70s! The record has a quality that's impossible to describe accurately – but it's kind of a post-Motown full-on approach to soul that mixes strings, piano, and that wall of sound groove ...
