Bobby Womack – Looking For A Love: The Best Of Bobby Womack 1968-76

The only reason Bobby Womack isn’t rated alongside Otis, Marvin, James Brown and Sam Cooke is that he upset too many people when he married Cooke’s widow just three months after Sam’s death. Yet he deserves a place in the soul pantheon?just ask the Stones or Ry Cooder. Apart from the absence of early material with The Valentinos, this is the best of his work?19 prime cuts of funk and soul from “What Is This” to “Woman’s Gotta Have it”.
