Bobby Womack - Understanding - 1972
Killer 70s work from Bobby Womack -- reinventing himself here in a great style that keeps all the warmth and soulfulness of his Minit recordings, and gives it a healthy dose of 70s soul production -- creating a sweet new groove that pushed Womack into a huge new audience at the time! Bobby strikes a perfect balance here -- keeping things hip, but also tightening things up too -- yet never by getting too smooth or too commercial. The result is a great batch of tracks that includes classics like "I Can Understand It", "Woman's Gotta Have it", and "Harry Hippy" -- as well as a nice version of "Sweet Caroline", and Jimmy Lewis' great "Got To Get You Back".
