LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 11

Bobby Womack at the height of his powers – perfectly balancing southern soul roots and 70s soul polish – with an amazing sound that was unlike anyone else at the time! The set was recorded at Muscle Shoals, but has a quality that goes way beyond any of the standard modes from the studio – almost as if Bobby brought a special sort of magic to the sessions that made everyone rise above the sometimes too-familiar work they were giving to the bigger names who were traipsing through the studio. Of course, a big part of the success of the album comes from Womack's amazing vocal delivery – that style that's raspy, yet warm – and which is a perfect fit for the well-penned tunes on the set. Titles include "I'm Through Trying To Prove My Love To You", "Nobody", "If You Can't Give Her Love Give Her Up", and a very cool version of "The Look Of Love".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Polydor, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
One of the wilder James Brown instrumental LPs from the late King period.

All tracks are by James and Dave Matthews, and the record is sort of a second ... LP, Vinyl record album

Polydor, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
