Bobby Womack first came to prominence in the in the 1950s as part of The Womack Brothers, a gospel group that was comprised of siblings Cecil, Harry, Curtis and Friendly.

Bobby Womack or the Poet as he later became known is one of the classic Soul Artists. From his original forages in Music working as a session guitarist and song writer for the likes of Wilson Picket, Ray Charles and the fabulous Aretha Franklyn, he found success in his own right with the release of his first hit - "What Is This" in 1968, from here his reputation grew as he became one of the greatest Soul artists of his generation.
With the release of Tarantino's Jackie Brown - Bobby was brought to the attention of an entire new spectrum of fans who had missed out on him the first time round as "Across 110th Street" (seen previously on the film of the same name), was chosen for the title track. This song in itself is almost justification for the purchase of this album but when combined with the other tracks from the raspy voiced poet himself, the likes of "I can Understand It", "Gotta Get You Back" and "Communication" then one gets a whole plethora of classic tracks.
"Woman's Gotta Have It" is a fantastic track and Bobby's first number one hit and is a warning to any man taking his woman for granted. For me the culmination of the album comes with the best version of The Mammas and The Papas original track "California Dreamin'" which is unbelievably funky - you have to hear it to believe it.
If you like Soul then this album is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 2 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD
This is a fantastic collection of early Bobby Womack songs.

As the guitarist for Sam Cooke, a songwriter for Wilson Pickett, a guest artist on Sly Stone's album "There's a Riot Going On", Bobby Womack has a special place in the history of soul.

But he was much more than a sideman. he was a captivating artist in his own right as this CD proves.

If you buy this, seek out The Poet next to hear what Womack was doing in the early eighties.

Replacement for a worn out original. Need I say more? A CD collection is not complete without at least two big Bobby Womack albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Discovery for Me and WOW! 19 Dec 2002
By carol irvin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"California Dreaming" will NEVER sound the same to you after you hear Bobby Womack do it. I'd always previously heard what most people hear: the Mamas and Papas doing it. They sound absolutely awful after you hear Bobby singing it. That was the first song I ever heard Bobby Womack sing (this year, 2002) and I earnestly started listening to more. The man doesn't know how to do a bad song. His entire output is fabulous. Another thing you might like about him is that he is a welcome change from the overabundance of rap music we now have. He is not a rap, hip hop or street artist. Although I have my favorites in those genres, I'm just as glad to make a discovery outside of it, of someone whose primary claim to fame is fabulous singing.
