Bill Withers Lovely Day


First Released: 2010

Commentary: Forget the other compilations, this focuses on the early 70’s period in far more detail than the other albums, and in that sense it wipes the floor with the other compilations. Even if you own the other compilation there are at least 7 classic funk/soul/blues tracks that are only on here.Kissing My Love, Lonely Town, Lonely Street, Better of Dead, Sweet Wanomi, I Dont Want You On My Mind, Take It All In-Check It All Out, The Same Love That Has Made Me Laugh (has made me cry), I Don’t Know and some live tracks, plus all the other classics on the other compilations.

Bill Withers was and is a lyrical and musical genius that I would honestly put up there with the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Nina Simone, Robert Johnson etc. Withers’ is a lost and forgotten genius who has graced us with some of the most mesmerising soul music not only of his generation, but any generation.

But best of all it’s downright dirty, gritty and funky!!!!!!
