Bill Withers' second album – even more wonderful than the first! The record's a perfect summation of all that made Bill so great – warm raspy vocals, sweet soulful production, mature songwriting, and just the right use of acoustic guitar to accent all the best elements in the music! Withers was already great before this record, but Still Bill really pushed him over the top – and made sure that generations to come would never tire of his genius. The arrangements are wonderful – with just the right sort of punch to hammer things home – yet still very far from commercial, and able to let all the acoustic elements of Bill's roots shine through. The record includes the massive "Lean On Me" – but we love it even more for the funky "Use Me", the slinky "Kissing My Love", the righteous "Who Is He (And What Is He To You)", and the always-great "Lonely Town Lonely Street". Plus, CD features bonus live versions of "Let Me In Your Life" and "Lonely Town Lonely Street". (Out of print. Barcode has a cutout hole.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Rev-Ola (UK), Early 50s. Used
Hard-wailing work from the legendary Johnny Otis – and an overstuffed collection of his early 50s recordings for the Mercury and Peacock labels! These sides aren't reissued as often as some of Johnny's other work – especially his Savoy and Capitol recordings – so the CD's a bit ... CD
