Bill Withers - "Still Bill"

Found a good condition used LP copy of Bill Withers' 1972 album "Still Bill." I've been looking for this one for a while, so I'm pretty pleased. The sound quality really impresses me - this is one well-produced album. It sounds fresh and alive. A great pressing. And Withers' songs and the performances are outstanding. "Who is He (and what is he to you)?" has that slow, funky bass groove... it's just killer. And of course "Use Me" and "Lean on Me" are classic singles that have been covered many times.

"Still Bill" is a hugely influential album that deserves every accolade.
