Picks and Pans Review: The Poet

Bobby Womack

Over the years plenty of superstars have availed themselves of Womack's versatile talents as a composer. George Benson used his Breezin' as the title cut of his multimillion seller, the Rolling Stones recorded his It's All Over Now in 1964, and the rocking J. Geils Band did a number on his 1974 hit Lookin' for a Love. This eight-song collection certainly displays Womack's stylistic breadth. Most of it, though, fits the broad parameters of rhythm and blues, for which he's got all the right moves. Besides his fluid guitar licks, Womack can growl on Just My Imagination and be sweet and sassy on If You Think You're Lonely Now. This album was also a family project, with no fewer than six other Womacks listed in the credits.
