Org Album: Lean on Me: The Best of Bill Withers (1994).
Those who admire songs like "Lean on Me" and "Ain't No Sunshine" are advised to approach this best-of with caution; from the mid-'70s onward, Bill Withers forsook his folky singer/songwriter soul for more anonymous, slick MOR soul and urban contemporary. His early sound was far more distinctive, and his early-'70s Sussex albums are recommended alternatives to this compilation.
Album · 1994 · 17 Songs. Seventies soul icon Bill Withers has a passionate, sandpapery voice and a gift for writing poignant yet catchy songs. In the friendship tribute of Lean on Me, the tense downbeat blues of Who Is He? (And What Is He to You?), and the summery disco of Lovely Day, his easygoing delivery leaves the impression that the songs just flowed out of him. A final valedictory duet with jazz saxophonist Grover Washington, J. Just the Two of Us, perfectly captures the era’s groovy romance. Lean On Me: The Best of Bill Withers Bill Withers.
