Bobby WomackBobby Womack Greatest Hits ... CD
Capitol/Right Stuff, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $4.99
Bobby's so great, it's hard to fit all of his good stuff on one CD – but this set does a pretty darn good job, and includes 19 tracks from his legendary years on United Artists! Hearing this set, we're stunned to realize just how many great tracks Bobby turned out over the years – especially because there's a few nice ones on here we forgot that he even did. Titles include "Harry Hippie", "Check It Out", "You're Welcome, Stop On By", "Daylight", "Woman's Gotta Have It", "Save The Children", "I Wish He Didn't Trust Me So Much", "Lookin For A Love", and "Woman's Gotta Have It".

Bobby WomackFacts Of Life/I Don't Know What The World Is Coming To ... CD
United Artists/EMI (UK), Early 70s. Used ... $9.99
2 of Bobby's classic early 70's albums on one CD! Facts of Life is beautiful work by Bobby, with a deep soulful sound, and backing by Muscle Shoals musicians like Clayton Ivey, Rodger Hawkins, and Barry Beckett. The arrangements are a little bit larger than usual, but Bobby's voice and songwriting skills are top-notch. Cuts 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". I Don't Know is a smooth soul update of Bobby's raspy southern soul style – with results that are perfect, and which yield some very nice tracks that are both deep and soulful, and smooth-edged groovers. Womack's voice is fantastic, as always – and titles include "Put Something Down On It", "What's Your World", "Git It", "I Don't Know", "Jealous Love", and 2 very nice "Interlude" tracks! CD

Bobby WomackHome Is Where The Heart Is ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Very Good ... $5.99
An exceptional album from Bobby Womack's years at Columbia Records – and a record that brings together smooth and roosty styles wonderfully! When Womack moved to Columbia, he was doing it at a time when a number of other older deep soul artists (Johnny Taylor, Betty Wright, Tyrone Davis) were making the shift – pulling their sound out of the indie ghetto, and going for a more sophisticated approach that expanded their style without dampening their spirit! In the case of Bobby, the shift was perhaps near perfect – as the raspy Womack vocals are still wonderfully in place, but the increasingly great choice of songs, warmer style of arrangements, and completely professional presentation of the material really helps push Bobby to the next level. Material was recorded in both Muscle Shoals and LA – and the set includes some great Womack originals, plus a few more great numbers by Prince Phillip Mitchell! Titles include "Home Is Where The Heart Is", "Something For My Head", "A Little Bit Salty", "How Long", "Standing In the Safety Zone", and "One More Chance On Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bobby WomackI Don't Know What The World Is Coming To ... LP
United Artists, 1975. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The cover and the title are a great illustration of the growth of Bobby Womack on this classic 70s set – a mode of presentation that's maybe a bit more badass than before, without the down-home image of Bobby holding his guitar! Some aspects of the record are plenty darn righteous – and live up to the social commentary of the title – and these are mixed with Womack's rootsy vocals in a way that's really unique – almost as if a Marvin Gaye message album was crafted down in Memphis or Muscle Shoals. Some bits of the record are almost blackploitation funk in their use of wicked keyboards, sharp guitar, and larger charts – and the tunes blend together in this very cool way that really makes the whole set fit together nicely. Womack's voice is fantastic, as always – and titles include "Put Something Down On It", "What's Your World", "Git It", "I Don't Know", "Jealous Love", and 2 very nice "Interlude" tracks!

Womack brings more depth to the proceedings with some social awareness and an all around realness to the song choices. Tracks include "Living In A Box", "When The Weekend Comes" (featuring Sly Stone) "I Still Love You", "Gina", "A World Where No One Cries", "The Things We Do (When We're Lonely)", "Outside Myself" and more.

Bobby WomackLookin' For A Love Again ... LP
United Artists, 1974. Very Good+ ... $8.99
A stone classic from Bobby Womack – one of those records that has all his best elements firmly in place, put forward at a level that's sophisticated and polished, yet never too commercial at all! Bobby's voices are still incredible – that raspy, personal feel that's rooted in country and deeper soul modes, yet ready to take on the mainstream as well – and the tracks also still feature lots of his wonderful guitar work, which inflects the music with these deeper feelings that really holds strong – and definitely lives up to the initial charm of Womack's first few records on Minit. Most of the set was recorded at Muscle Shoals, but as a place where Womack was travelling from LA – a fact that definitely shows in the mix of rootsy elements and tighter construction – yet still handled here without any of the cliches that so many other artists might hit when recording on that scene. Titles include the killer funky stepper "You're Welcome Stop On By", which has been sampled and covered many times over the years – plus "I Don't Wanna Be Hurt By Ya Love Again", "Let It Hang Out", "Lookin For A Love", "Doing It My Way", and "Don't Let Me Down".

✨✧ Bobby WomackLookin' For A Love Again/BW Goes C & W ... CD
EMI (UK), Early 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Incredible work from Bobby Womack – 2 albums on one CD! Lookin For A Love is perfect pivotal Bobby! The record still has the raspy southern soul edge of earlier albums, but it benefits from some great smooth funky backing, laid down at Muscle Shoals with a host of legendary studio giants like Clayton Ivey, Roger Hawkins, Jimmy Johnson, and Truman Thomas. Includes killer funky stepper "You're Welcome, Stop On By", which has been sampled and covered many times over the years – plus "I Don't Wanna Be Hurt By Ya Love Again", "Let It Hang Out", "Lookin For A Love", "Doing It My Way", and "Don't Let Me Down". BW Goes CW has Bobby serving up a nice set of country soul tunes – a perfect move to us, 'cause we always felt that Bobby had a lil' bit o' country in him all the time, especially in some of his guitar chord changes. The album's a nice batch of tracks with kind of a raspy soulful feel, and it follows nicely in a country soul tradition that includes Solomon Burke and Ray Charles. Titles include "Song Of The Mockingbird", "Tarnished Rings", "Don't Make This The Last Date", "I'd Be Ahead If I Could Quit While I'm Behind", and "I Take It On Home". CD

✨✧ Bobby WomackMy Prescription ... LP
Minit, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $34.99
Completely wonderful work from Bobby Womack – one of those records that shows why Bobby's so different from other singers, right from the start! Womack's guitar lines are beautiful – and echo a lot of country styles alongside his raspy vocals – but hardly at a level that's cliched country soul at all, given the overall freshness of the arrangements! Bobby handled the charts, along with Glen Spreen and Mike Leech – and the great Chips Moman produced, and gives the set a sparkling southern style overall – but one that also seems to point strongly towards Womack's wider reach towards the west coast. Womack's songwriting is already great, but even the tracks here by other writers still get a treatment that really make them his own – including Bobby's classic take on "Everyone's Gone To The Moon". Original tracks include "How I Miss You Baby", "More Than I Can Stand", "It's Gonna Rain", "Tried & Convicted", and "Thank You". LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby WomackRoads Of Life ... LP
Arista, 1978. Very Good- ... $7.99
A great album from Bobby – different than his earlier albums for United Artists, but in a good way – one that revives his whole career, and takes his sound into a whole new direction! The album's got a smooth soul finish with some touches of synth funk – produced by Bobby and Patrick Moten, who would later work together on the masterful Poet LP – and the contrast between the more modern arrangements and Bobby's raspy soul vocals works wonderfully! The mellow tracks are really great – with a tight, lightly funky sound bubbling under Bobby's wonderful vocals – and the album's got loads of nice cuts like "The Roads Of Life", "Give It Up", "The Roots In Me", "Honey Dripper Boogie", "How Could You Break My Heart", and "What Are You Doing".

Bobby WomackWomack Live/Safety Zone ... CD
Minit/EMI (UK), 1970/1976. Used ... $14.99
Bobby Womack in 2 different formats – and hitting hard in both! The Womack Live features Bobby working in front of a live audience in a style that's overflowing with warmth and soul – grooving to backings that are really stripped-down and spare, and which offer different versions of the tunes than you'd hear on Bobby's studio albums from the time. The sound is incredible – earthy, heartfelt, and simply wonderful throughout – as Bobby sings beautifully on tracks that include "The Preacher", "More Than I Can Stand", "Oh How I Miss You Baby" – plus good soulful covers of "Everybody's Talkin" and "California Dreamin"! The Safety Zone album follows with a smoother sound, but one that's still plenty darn soulful – Bobby's wonderful mix of his earlier rootsy mode with tighter, funkier LA 70s grooves – in a style that really pushed him into the mainstream and up to the top of the charts, but without losing any of the soul of earlier years! Titles include "Everything's Gonna Be Alright", "Something You Got", "I Feel A Groove Comin' On", "Trust Me", "Love Ain't Something You Can Get For Free", and "Daylight". CD

Johnson, which are perfectly in the groove of the blacksploitation generation! Lots of wah-wah guitar, funky keys, and tight riffing by the band – especially on the cuts "Harlem Clavinette", "Hang On in There", and "Harlem Love Theme". Also features "Do It Right" and another vocal version of "Hang On In There", both by Bobby. CD

United Artists, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the all-time great ones from Bobby Womack – and a set that definitely helped push the singer into the mainstream of soul in the 70s! Bobby says thanks to Sly Stone on the back of this album – and it's clear that he's gotten a good dose of Sly's funky soul to kick things up a bit from earlier records! Part of the record was cut in Muscle Shoals, and it's still got that rootsy southern style of Bobby's late 60s work – but there's also a tighter LA funk sound in the mix, with lots of electric guitar solos and funky electric keyboards – a blend that really helps Womack stretch past his southern soul roots, and find an even broader audience, yet without sounding commercial or cliched at all. Titles include the righteous "Communication", plus "That's The Way I Feel About 'Cha", "Everything Is Beautiful", "Come L'Amore", and a monologue-heavy version of "Close To You" that's a bit on the Isaac Hayes tip. And hey, Pam Grier's on backup vocals, too! LP, Vinyl record album

United Artists, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". CD

Sort of a third part to the Poet albums that Bobby Womack recorded before this set – and like those, a great updating of the older Womack sound for a slightly smoother 80s soul approach! Bobby's vocals are still very much center stage in the record – and if anything, they're recorded here in a sensitive way that really lets him open up on the lyric – pushing the tunes with an even deeper sense of interpretation than on his work of the late 70s. Bobby himself produced most of the record, and the title tune is an incredible remake of Donny Hathaway's "Some Day We'll All Be Free" – done here in a way that brings even more life than before to the lyrics! Other tunes are originals by Bobby, Cecil, or Linda Womack – and titles include "I'm So Proud", "Gifted One", "Falling In Love Again", and "Searching For My Love". LP, Vinyl record album

A great look at the early years of Bobby Womack – featuring tracks from his first few albums for the Minit label, plus later hits from his mighty years at United Artists! Bobby had a sound like few other singers of his time – a raspy vocal approach that was instantly recognizable, and which stepped out proud and strong no matter what the setting.

Atlantic/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two of the hippest soul artists of the late 60s – coming together here for an incredible collection of work! Bobby Womack would explode into huge fame as a star in his own right at the end of the decade – but at the time of these recordings, he was mostly getting play as a songwriter – and the young Wilson Pickett was one of the strongest supporters of his work! The tracks here were all recorded between 1966 and 1968 for Atlantic Records – including many excellent Muscle Shoals recordings – and the style of Womack's writing is a perfect blend with the deep soul vocals of the Wicked Pickett – at a level that almost seems to provide a blueprint for the mode that Bobby would use on his first few length albums. The lyrics are wonderful – full of fantastic feeling, and arguably more mature than some of the contemporary soul from the time – and it's wonderful to hear all the selections together in one place, especially with detailed notes that really frame the whole project. Titles include "It's A Groove", "Let's Get An Understanding", "People Make The World What It Is", "Trust Me", "Remember I Been Good To You", "I've Come A Long Way", "Sit Down & Talk This Over", "Nothing You Can Do", "I'm In Love", "I'm Sorry About That", "I Found A True Love", "We've Got To Have Love", and "Jealous Love" – and the CD also features two great bonus tracks – an early Bobby Womack single from Atlantic in 1967 – with Bobby singing "Find Me Somebody" and "How Does It Feel".

Sweet Lou, but funky Lou too – a perfect blend of modes that makes for one of Donaldson's last great albums for Blue Note! The set's got some fuller arrangements from Horace Ott – but given Ott's work in the indie soul world during the 60s, there's still a nice edge to the record too – a mode that blends Lou's alto sax with some electric grooves in the CTI/Kudu mode – yet still with plenty of respect for the soloist at the helm! There's a bit of female chorus vocals on the record – used in a hip way to underscore the chorus bits on some of the more soulful tunes – and Donaldson almost does a Stanley Turrentine bit on the ballads, by blowing these soulful lines that sound surprisingly great in the modern setting. Rhythm features Pretty Purdie on drums, Cornell Dupree on guitar, and Horace Ott on keyboards – and titles include the funky classic "Peepin", a remake of the earlier "Herman's Mambo", and a sweet take on Bobby Womack's "You're Welcome Stop On By" – as well as the cuts "Hip Trip", "Lost Love", and "if You Can't Handle It Give It To Me".

Of course, Lennon & McCartney contributed the title track "Hey Jude" – which Wilson redoes here with the same soulful inflection that Ike & Tina were bringing to some of the 60s rock cannon at the end of the decade – and other titles include "Save Me", "My Own Style Of Loving", "Toe Hold", "People Make The World", "A Man & A Half", and "Sit Down & Talk This Over".

Atlantic (Japan), 1965/1966. New Copy 2CD ... $49.99
Think you know the sound of Atlantic Records in the 60s? Think again – because this stunning series opens the vault to a huge amount of rare treasures from the legendary label! The package is amazing – and offers up rare tracks that were mostly only issued by Atlantic on singles – including some on the other imprints associated with the company – some by names we never even knew recorded for the label, others by bigger names, but represented here by obscure material that goes way past their hits – and which is ultra cool because of that. There's also a fair bit more deep soul than you might expect from the usual Atlantic mix – tremendous vocals, and often in less hit-heavy modes – which makes the whole thing a great revelation – and just one more reason to bow down and give even more expect to one of the key companies who helped soul music find a home in the 60s.

✨✧ VariousOn The Soul Side – 26 Soul Grooves ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic compilation gets upgraded in a mighty nice way – as a huge tribute to the many years of soul and funk we've gotten from the Ace/Kent label in London! Back at the start of the 80s, the company was one of the first to properly repress rare American soul, and do it the right way – not only with top-shelf sound quality, but also a strong sense of history that has had us learning as much about 60s and 70s soul from their compilations as we've found ourselves loving the music! The original On The Soul Side album was one of the first Kent titles from the early years – but here, it's expanded to a whopping 26 titles, with great sound and detailed notes – all to present over two dozen tracks that really show the farther reaches of 60s soul beyond Motown and the big chart hits. Titles include "Boy Watcher" by Ginger Thompson, "Baby I Love You" by Jimmy Holiday, "Dr Love" by Bobby Sheen, "Love & Desire" by Patrice Holloway, "A Lot Of Love" by Homer Banks, "It's What's Underneath That Counts" by June Jackson, "Point Of No Return" by Gene McDaniels, "Fortune Teller" by Benny Spellman, "It Was Easier To Hurt Her" by Garnet Mimms, "The Record" by HB Barnum, "Love Is A Hurtin Thing" by Lou Rawls, "Nothing Left To Do But Cry" by Merry Clayton, "The Man Who Don't Believe In Love" by Marv Johnson, "What You Gonna Do" by Bobby Womack, "Nobody Treats You The Way I Do" by The Magnificent Men, "Gonna Fix You Good" by Little Anthony & The Imperials, "It Will Stand" by The Showmen, "What's A Matter Baby" by Timi Yuro, "Ready Willing & Able" by Jimmy Holiday & Clydie King, and "Trick Bag" by Earl King.

✨✧ Loleatta HollowayLoleatta Holloway (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Gold Mind/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really classic set of dancefloor tracks from Loleatta Holloway – and a set that's got her fully stepping into the disco diva role, after starting out as more of a deep soul singer! Holloway's rich, full voice is perfect for the setting – a proud, confident lead that really soars out in the album's great arrangements – a nicely varied mix of Salsoul-styled club cuts, arranged by Bobby Womack, Floyd Smith, and Tom Washington. The different talents bring a nice range of approaches to the record, which further helps flesh out Loleatta's nicely maturing vocal style – and tunes include That's What You Said", "The Greatest Performance Of My Life", "All About The Paper", "Sweet Mother Of Mine", and "There Must Be A Reason". CD features bonus tracks – "The Greatest Performance Of My Life (12" disco)", "That's What You Said (12" disco)", "All About The Paper (ext version)", and "The Greatest Performance Of My Life (Larry Levan rmx)".

✨✧ Loleatta HollowayLove Sensation (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
Landmark club grooves from the great Loleatta Holloway – and a record that definitely has her at the top of the disco game for the 70s! Holloway's working here with a nice variety of arrangers and producers – including Bobby Womack, Norman Harris, Dan Hartman, and Tom Washington – each of whom add some sweet little touches that let Holloway's vocals really take off, and find a space that's even more proud and powerful than ever before! Rhythms have an incessant Salsoul groove – that great approach that was often tightly funky at the core, and which really helped transform a key few singers like Holloway – taking them to the clubs, but without losing any of the depth of their roots. Key proof of this is the sublime leadoff track – "Love Sensation" – one of the greatest Salsoul tracks ever, and maybe one of the best female disco numbers too. The cut's a monster, one of the most anthemic dance tracks of all time – and it's followed by other good numbers that include "Two Became a Crowd", "My Way", and "Short End of the Stick". CD features four bonus versions of the title track – "Love Sensation (Tom Moulton 12" mix)", "Love Sensation (Shep Pettibone 12" mix)", "Love Sensation (Tom Moulton long)", and "Love Sensation (short)".

✨✧ VariousChess Northern Soul Vol 3 (7 x 7 inch single box set – with download) ... 7-inch
Chess/Universal (UK), 1960s. New Copy 7 x 7 inch set ... Out Of Stock
Socking soul from the legendary Chess Records – presented in a format that always served the label best! This very limited box features seven 45s – each of which contains two great grooves from Chess – the kind of upbeat, uptempo soul that made the Chicago scene of the 60s second only to Detroit for groovers this great! Yet we almost like this material even better than the sounds of Motown – as Chess always had something interesting going on – some compelling arrangements, unusual touches, and a range of influences that really show up on the music within – a range of cuts that include some of our favorite 45s from the legendary label. Titles include "I'm So Glad" by Joe Cato, "See Me Through" by Bobby Womack, "Ordinary Joe" by Terry Callier, "Baby Hang On" by Maurice McAllister, "Such A Pretty Thing" by Gene Chandler, "Loving You Is Something New" by The Starlets, "Wait" by Jeanette Nellis, "You Keep Calling Me By Her Name" by Amanda Love, "Pain" by Mitty Collier, "City Life" by The Knight Brothers, "Lend Me Your Hand" by The Kindly Shepherds, "Lucky Boy" by Harold Hutton, "Foolish Me" by Jo Ann Garrett, and "Love Ain't Nothin" by Johnny Nash. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousGetting To Me – 25 Tracks From The Classy Atlantic End Of The Rare 60s Soul Spectrum ... CD
Atlantic/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Excellent rare soul from Atlantic – and a very different side of the label's output! The focus here is on tracks that are a bit more sophisticated than the hits – not really mellow, as most of the numbers are very nice groovers, but just with a twist that sets them apart from some of the label's other material. The 25-track set begins with a previously unissued gem from Ben E King – "Getting To Me", which has some of the most amazing arrangements we've heard on his records – and the collection follows with an equally great batch of lesser-known cuts from the legendary soul label – really wonderful all the way through, and handled with the usual Kent Records excellent notes and sound quality. Other titles include "Sly Girl" by Derek Martin, "My Love Is Getting Stronger" by Cliff Nobles, "Here Come The Tears" by Darrell Banks, "You My Love" by Tami Lynn, "Across The Street" by Lenny O'Henry, "Come On Baby & Hurt Me" by Naomi & Harris, "New Day Begins" by Parliaments, "Find Me Somebody" by Bobby Womack, "Got To Get You Back" by Johnny Newbag, "Suffering City" by Johnny Copeland, "Where Did I Go Wrong" by The Embers, and "Thank You John" by Willie Tee.
