✨✧ Gabor Szabo & Bobby WomackHigh Contrast ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1970. Good+ ... $6.99
Excellent early 70s work from jazz guitarist Gabor Szabo – a super-dope album that's one of the best he ever recorded! Part of the success of the record has to do with the presence of Bobby Womack – normally a soul singer, but also a heck of a guitarist, playing here alongside Szabo in a very cool twin-guitar style that makes for an amazing sound. Both players have a hollow, warm tone to their work on the strings – stepping around a blend of soul and jazz that's nicely tripped out in a 70s Blue Thumb style. The highlight of the record is the massive track "Breezin", a sample track used by more than one group over the years – but the whole record's amazing, filled with slow, trippy grooves that were years ahead of their time! Titles include "I Remember When", "Just A Little Communication", "Amazon", "Fingers", and "Azure Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bobby WomackBobby Womack's Greatest Hits (United Artists pressing) ... LP
United Artists, Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Bobby's so great, it's hard to fit all of his good stuff on one LP – but this set does a pretty darn good job, and includes 12 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", "You're Welcome, Stop On By", "Sweet Caroline", "That's The Way I Feel About Cha", "More Than I Can Stand", "I Can Understand It", "Lookin For A Love", and "Woman's Gotta Have It".

✨✧ Bobby WomackCommunication ... LP
United Artists, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
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

✨✧ Bobby WomackFacts Of Life ... LP
United Artists, 1973. Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
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". LP, Vinyl record album

MCA/Superbird (UK), 1987. New Copy ... $6.99 14.99
The legendary Bobby Womack embraces 80s grooves fully on Last Soul Man – his gritty vocals bringing real, gritty soul to backdrops centered by keyboards, synth and programmed beats – and live instrumentation from some exceptional players. 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 WomackRoads Of Life ... LP
Arista, 1978. Very Good ... $9.99
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".

United Artists, 1972. Used ... $6.99
Killer 70s work from Bobby Womack – reinventing himself here in a great style that keeps all the warmth and soulfulness of his Minit recordings, and gives it a healthy dose of 70s soul production – creating a sweet new groove that pushed Womack into a huge new audience at the time! Bobby strikes a perfect balance here – keeping things hip, but also tightening things up too – yet never by getting too smooth or too commercial. The result is a great batch of tracks that includes classics like "I Can Understand It", "Woman's Gotta Have it", and "Harry Hippy" – as well as a nice version of "Sweet Caroline", and Jimmy Lewis' great "Got To Get You Back".

Bobby WomackWomack Winners – The Best Of Bobby Womack 1967-1975 ... LP
Charly (UK), Late 60s/Mid 70s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
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. The double LP features 24 of Bobby's best numbers, with a track list that really gets at the genius of these early years! Titles include "Woman's Gotta Have It", "Lookin' For A Love", "I'm A Midnight Mover", "What Is This", "Harry Hippie", "Across 110th Street", "Daylight", "I Can Understand It", "Communication", "Nobody Wants You When You're Down & Out", "It's All Over Now", "That's The Way I Feel About Cha", "Check It Out", and "If You Don't Want My Love, Give It Back".

One of Bobby's biggest albums of the 80s – and a smooth soulful set that features some nice guest work from the likes of George Benson, Patti Labelle, and Wilton Felder. We're a bit more partial to Bobby's earlier work, but his voice is always a treasure, with a raspy soulful edge that never goes away, no matter how smooth the production. Titles include "Tryin To Get Over You", "Through The Eyes Of A Child", "Love Has Finally Come At Last", "Who's Foolin Who", and "I Wish I Had Someone To Go Home To". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bobby WomackSomeday We'll All Be Free ... LP
Beverly Glen, 1985. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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

One of the best blacksploitation soundtracks of the early 70's – not only for the great title cut by Bobby Womack, "Across 110th Street", but for the excellent hard-hitting instrumentals by J.J. 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. LP, Vinyl record album

Wilson PickettWilson Pickett Sings Bobby Womack ... CD
Atlantic/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
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".

Warner, 1976. Used ... $1.99
A super huge hit for George – the record that took him from being a funky jazz guitarist into an R&B superstar! The album features George playing and singing over arrangements by Claus Ogerman – some of Ogerman's best of the 70s, ones that mix together his trademark pillow of sound with a slightly funky bounce. The result is incredible – and the album is filled with loads of great songs – including George's excellent version of Bobby Womack's "Breezin", the hit version of "This Masquerade", and the cuts "So This Is Love", "Six To Four", and "Affirmation".

ManhattansBack To Basics ... LP
Columbia, 1986. Very Good+ ... $0.99
The Manhattans get back to basics, but they're also working with a sound that's a bit smoother and more contemporary than before – a mix of slightly grooving rhythms and mellower quiet storm moments, the latter of which is especially well-suited to their vocals! There's a bit less harmonizing than before – at least on the main lyrics of the tunes – but the sound is still plenty darn great, and the group remain head and shoulders above most of the younger soul groups of the time. Regina Belle delivers guest vocals on one track, and Bobby Womack wrote and produced a number of tracks on the set. Titles include "Change Of Heart", "All I Need", "Mr DJ", "Just Like You", "Maybe Tomorrow", "Don't Look In My Eyes", and "Neither One Of Us". LP, Vinyl record album

Billy PrestonI Wrote A Simple Song ... LP

Billy Preston's first album on A&M Records – a surprisingly great home for his ever-evolving style! Billy give some big thanks in the notes to George Harrison, Bobby Womack, and Quincy Jones – all of whom he credits for bringing the album into being – although it's Quincy who really seems to do the most, given that he handled the string and horn arrangements for the set! Jones' touch is very apparent in the overall sound, as Preston's got a new sense of tightness for the record – a focus to his previous range of styles that really hits home hard, and which sets the tone for big successes to come. Titles include the nice funk instrumental "Outta Space", plus "I Wrote A Simple Song", "John Henry", "The Bus", "The Looner Tune", "You Done Got Older", and "Should've Known Better".

Maestro Warren Schatz produced and arranged the set – and the tunes have a smoothly grooving approach that really lets Vicki flow out nicely in advance of the hook – then bring things back home strongly on the chorus. Titles include some great ones by Gordon Grody – "Something Like A Dream", "Let Me Down Easy", and "How About Me" – plus a version of "Daylight" by Bobby Womack. Other tracks include "I Won't Let You Go", "Can't Find No Love", and "After All This Time". CD

VariousGetting To Me – 25 Tracks From The Classy Atlantic End Of The Rare 60s Soul Spectrum ... CD
Atlantic/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
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.

Playoff (France), Early 70s. Used ... $8.99
Classic funky soul from the 70s – a set that definitely lives up to the blacksploitation groove promised in the title, thanks to a host of classics from the left field of the funky spectrum! Some of these cuts are well-remembered from back in the day, but most are the kind of underground tracks that have grown in strength over the years – thanks to circulation as hip hop samples, or on rare groove playlists – and in fact, the whole track list here might well read as kind of a dream list to hear on a funky dancefloor! Titles include "I Believe In Miracles" by The Jackson Sisters, "Give Me Your Love" by Sisters Love, "Across 110th Street" by Bobby Womack, "Testify" by Johnnie Taylor, "Talkin Loud & Sayin Nothin" by James Brown, "Love Me Back" by Willie Hutch, "I Cry" by Millie Jackson, "Hang Out & Hustle" by Sweet Charles, "Brother Louie" by Undisputed Truth, "Superfly" by Curtis Mayfield, and "Who Is He & What Is He To You" by Creative Source.

A&M, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful mix of subtle soul and down home rock – the kind of rare magic that could often happen best in the hands of A&M during the early 70s! Marc Benno's stepping out a bit here from his debut – working with a larger lineup that includes Bobby Womack and Jesse Davis on guitars, and backing vocals from the trio of Rita Coolidge, Clydie King, and Venetta Fields – as well as a bit of accordion from the legendary Nick DeCaro! The expanded lineup doesn't hurt the record at all, though – because Benno's still very much at the forefront vocally and in the lyrics of his wonderful tunes – weaving a way between different styles of the time, and marking a space that should have made him a much bigger artist at the time. But perhaps that's the real charm here – a subtle genius that's bubbled under for years, made all the richer by its under-discovery! Titles include "Back Down Home", "Stone Cottage", "Franny", "Speak Your Mind", "Good Times", "Baby I Love You", and "Don't Let The Sun Go Down". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ California PlayboysTrying To Become A Millionaire ... CD
Loadstone/Manufactured, 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Stunning funky soul by California Playboys – a heck of a record that should have made the Playboys a huge combo at the time! It's a shame the group didn't become millionaires – but the obscurity of the record is maybe also one of its charms – the kind of small label set that never fully got its due at the time, but which is ripe for rediscovery all these many years later! The California Playboys were together for a number of years – forming as a backing band for singer Lester Young (not the sax player), doing session work for others, and otherwise developing their skills for years – all of which really comes through here in their sharp-edged instrumentation, which sounds even sharper in the 70s indie-level production for the album. The killer title tune sounds like it could (and should!) be the namesake tune of a funky mid 70s soundtrack – as it's really got a perfect cinematic soul vibe, ala Bobby Womack and Marvin Gaye – though in a tighter, smaller combo setting. Most tunes start with vocals and end with long instrumental riffing – and titles include"Double Love", "She's A Real Sweet Woman", "Just Say A Four Letter Word", "I've Got To Find Myself Another Girl", and "Turned On For Good".
