A completely sublime first album from the great Bobby Womack – and a set that already has him sounding quite different than any of his contemporaries! Bobby's got a southern soul vibe at the start, to be sure – but he also works things in this amazingly fresh way, too – a bit of Cali sun mixed in with his well-penned tunes – and a mature, confident approach that really pushes male soul in a new direction. The vocals are incredible – fresh, and raw, and with that warm little rasp that made him stand out so strongly from other singers of the late 60s – Bobby's personal touch that still always sends us after all these years. The arrangements are superb, with a mix of small-combo organ/guitar southern grooving, and just the right touches of larger orchestrations to push the whole thing over the top. The songwriting is superb – with some of Bobby's best early tracks, like "What Is This", "I'm In Love", and "Baby! You Oughta Think it Over". Even the non-original tracks are wonderful – like the track "Fly Me to the Moon", which Bobby manages to completely make his own! (Cover has a partially split bottom seam, some wear, and some marker on the back – but this is great original copy overall!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Warner, 1977. Very Good+
Even better than the first Warner album from Crackin – a sweet little cooker with loads of subtle charm! The group have a really great feel – tight, but never commercial – and never too AOR, as well – a careful balance that's probably one of the reasons why they never ... LP, Vinyl record album

Motown's two slickest and most successful groups match up perfectly in this surprisingly nice album from 1968!

Groove Merchant, 1974. Very Good+
One of the best 70s albums by this funky organ player – quite different than his work for Blue Note, with a messier funkier edge that's very nice!
