A beautiful album by Bill With
ers – filled with
incredibly well written songs, and an amazing instrumental technique that blended folksy elements with
smoother 70s soul, in a sound that would put Bill at the top of the charts for many years, yet still give him cred with
soul fans for decades! Booker T Jones arranged, produced, and played electric piano on the album – and we can say with
out a doubt that the record's one of the few good things to come out of his move to LA! Although the album's not a greatest hits one, given the strength of the tracks, it may as well be, as it includes With
ers classics like "Grandma's Hands", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Harlem", and "Hope She'll Be Happier". Also features the nice groover, "Better Off Dead", which has a very tasty intro!
(Nice heavy tip-on cover – better than the original!)
