Must Have Soul Music
Ho Chi Minh | Texas | 06/09/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I purchased this CD from My local Record Store at a good price, I didn't know if it was "original" recordings or not, I suspected the EMI stuff was the original recordings, but I was unsure of the MCA tracks....of course, the Store employees don't know Bobby Womack, let alone would know if these were the true original recordings...Well, they are, which makes this THE Bobby Womack CD to own. You get the rich 1972-74 Material, which is as good as Soul gets, plus the cream of the 80's, notably "if You think your'e lonely now", on one fabulous disc. Those who bought/and or considered buying Bobby Womack's Greatest Hits (on Right Stuff) should note that this CD contains "across 110th Street" and "Love has finally come at last (with Patti Labelle)"...The above 3 mentioned tracks are missing from Greatest Hits..."
Great selections from a vast catalog.

"I normally loathe greatest hits collections. Naturally they contain the songs every one knows and loves from an artist, but what usually gets me is that they in a lot of instances omit the other songs of that performer's catalog, that while not as popular, are every bit as good. In a lot of cases these songs are essential to grasping that artist. This collection of gems from the pride of Muscle Shoals, Alabama does a fine job capturing the essence of Mr. Bobby Womack. All of the hits are here, from "Womans Gotta Have It", "That's The Way I Feel About Cha", the classic "If You Think Your Lonely Now" (covered tremendously by K-Ci by the way) and what Womack greatest hits would be complete without "Across 110th Street"? My standout personal favorite is the soul stirring "Harry Hippie".

Womacks' vocals are so on point on this and virtually every song on this collection. He is without a doubt one of soul music's most important voices, and this cd testifies to that effect. My only complaint is a few too many covers. The versions of "All Along The Watchtower", "California Dreaming" and "Sweet Caroline" are nothing special. They could have been replaced by other songs less known to someone prone to buy a greatest hits cd, thus drawing them deeper into the artist. Again that is why I usually avoid GH albums even when getting to know an artist for the first time. I'll start with the most popular album, then work my way through. Though it may take a little longer, it's usually more fulfilling to do it that way. Other than my lil hangup, this is a strong assemblage of Womack's music, and the price is usually perfect for those looking to dig up on some great soul music by him, possibly for the first time."

"off the Bat I'm a Huge Bobby WOmack Fan. the Brother brings the Soul. he sings and will rap to you without fully rapping but he always had that Swag about him which is true to his roots. the songs on this collection showcase his versatility and overall depth as a Musician, Producer, Songwriter and VOcalist. He always lets you know what is on his mind and any artist that is that direct always gets a listen and beyond from me. this compilations contains a whole bunch of his hits and you feel the Soulfulness of His voice which is timeless."
