Classic Bill Withers at His Very Best

DJ Rick

For all Bill Withers fans, this is the only CD you will ever need. Outstanding engineering,mastering and great selection of his best singles and album cuts. Awesome cd. Buy it. It does not get any better than this, I have most of his Cds., but this vastly exceeds the quality and sound of all the rest.Thank you ITunes for having this available at a great price. ( 2 Cds at $ 14.99).

Excellence

Many of these of these songs I knew before buying the album but I did not know the artist. Thanks to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame I have a new album for the soundtrack of my life. Thank you!

About Bill Withers

Singer/songwriter Bill Withers took soul music in a radically introspective direction in the early '70s, reviving the world-weary storytelling of the blues and embracing the autobiographical intimacy of folk rock. Already shaped by a lifetime of racial injustice and emotional upheaval by the time he first entered the studio in his early thirties, the West Virginia-born Withers applied hard-won, humanistic wisdom to sketches of striving city dwellers ("Harlem"), estranged fathers ("I'm Her Daddy"), and anguished alcoholics ("Better Off Dead”) with a voice that could soothe or scald. Bringing that same maturity to soul's greatest subject, Withers could revel in the small moments that make love feel sublime ("Lovely Day”), capture the devastation of a relationship’s regrets ("Ain't No Sunshine”), and offer inspiration while reaching out to a friend in need (“Lean on Me”). He left an undeniable stamp on socially conscious, intimately personal R&B singer/songwriters like Anthony Hamilton and D'Angelo, freeing them to mine life's deepest pleasures and darkest pains while finding poetry in day-to-day struggle.
