Product Description

Product Description

Womack is a veteran who paid his dues for over a decade before getting his shot at solo stardom, he persevered through tragedy and addiction to emerge as one of soul music's great survivors. Able to shine in the spotlight as a singer or behind the scenes as an instrumentalist and songwriter, Womack never got his due from pop audiences, but during the late '60s and much of the '70s, he was a consistent hitmaker on the R&B charts.

Through the ups and downs, the hits and the misses, the difficult deals and the missed opportunities Bobby Womack's stayed true to his art. That art has always been fired with passion; he s lived it; he's sung it; Bobby Womack ...the Last Great Soul Man.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Last Great Soul Man 7 July 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
The title of the cd pretty much describes the legend Bobby Womack is. I loved this cd. I can't stop dancing each time I listen to it. I may be in the age group of those who may be able to say, 'gee I remember when that came out' or 'when I first danced to it' because I was not born until the 80's. But I do love my music and honor where my soul has been brought to the highest height. This cd di that. Not one song brought me down. I kept climbing through all colours of emotions, movement and sounds. I tapped where I could have danced on a table and danced. You feel everything. It's worth the buy.

Heard of the very sad passing of this soul giant. I don't have this as I have the CD of 'Understanding'/'Communcation' which are his best and finest albums. Hopefully soon one of major companies will do a CD comp of The Valentinos recordings which is long overdue. There is NO such thing as soul music now as the music of now is sex/drugs/X factor driven. Will any of these so callers rank among this legend? Definitly no.

5.0 out of 5 stars Legend 29 Jun 2014
By Hayley
Format:Audio CD
Quintessential Womack, this album soars with raw honesty and a natural genius that is Womack . The gravel tipped baritone of Womack shining through . Responsible for the huge success of the Rolling Stones seminal track : It's all over now which Bobby wrote and which they covered it's always best to hear an album like this on the back notes of Loud . Penning hits for the likes of Joplin, Wilson Pickett and Stevie Wonder and Rod Stewart Womack's sheer lyrical poignancy , haunting vocals and amazing technical brilliance make this album a must have for any Womack fans . Listen and be dazzled.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! 28 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The more I listen to this album the better it sounds. Definatley a 70s vibe, sounds like it could be the soundtrack to Shaft but loving it. I only really knew 110 Street before and that was from the movie Jackie Brown, so glad I gave it try. Will try some of his others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great listening - wonderful Bobby Womack. 5 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love these CDs - Bobby Womack had the most amazing voice and was a wonder at interpreting words and melodies. I love his approach and would recommend to anyone who enjoys SOUL MUSIC. The Essential Bobby Womack can easily be enjoyed as background or turning it up somewhat (don't upset the neighbours!) and really listerning.
