That’s The Way I Feel About Ya

Fuck a duck! I guess I should start checking Pitchfork more often. I just read that yesterday saw not only a release of a new Best Of for one of my Top 3 favorite singers of all time- BOBBY FUCKIN WOMACK- but a first-time digital release of classics such as 1968’s Fly Me to the Moon, 1969’s My Prescription, 1971’s The Womack Live, 1973’s Lookin’ for a Love Again, 1975’s Safety Zone, 1975’s I Don’t Know What the World Is Coming To, and 1976’s BW Goes C&W. GODDAMN!

Not only THAT:

What’s more, May 27 will also see the digital release of recently unearthed recordings of a previously unavailable 1972 Womack gig under the title Live at the Apollo.

Oh lordy lord, I’m there. I actually need all of these in my life! I can only pray to baby black jesus that this will coincide with a TOUR, and that it comes to Seattle. Shit scratch the last part, if I have to I will fucking fly to LA if he comes at least that far. I will not miss another chance to see The Womack! (Last time he was here- at The Paramount- it was the same night as Cancer Rising’s first show.)

Check the shit I ran down on my personal favorite album of his, 1973’s Facts Of Life.

Also peep the man sangin “Woman Gotta Have It”:

Chuch!

What's most essential among the re-issues - in other words which of them should I start with?

i'm slobbering for the live record, and that would definitely be a GREAT place to start as Bobby's live recordings are some of his best. Other than that one- DEFINITELY peep Looking For A Love Again.
