I would like to state first that it is a travesty that more than half Bill Withers' catalogue is still out of print. Bill Withers was a contemporary of Al Green and is just as good in my opinion; and yet all of Al Green's albums are still in print, or at least easy to obtain, but Bill Withers' albums are not. I hope this changes.
I am ecstatic that this album has been released and it is indeed a masterpiece and I feel it is easily as good as his first two albums. "You," "The Same Love That Made Me Laugh," "Green Grass," "Ruby Lee," "Heartbreak Road" are all utterly amazing and could easily have been played on the radio. The liner notes give an excellent background on the tracks featuring information provided By Bill for this release. I really hope this release sparks an interest in Bill Withers albums because there are some other ones that I wish they would release.

At long last the wait is over to play this incredible music in CD format. The wait has been painful but music lovers everywhere won on February 16, 2010. Bill Withers made many great recordings but +'Justments is the "Masterpiece" long overdue. I hope it spurs the release of his entire catalog on CD in the near future. Thanks to whomever is responsible for restoring a gem. May it never go out of print.

One of Mr. Wither's classics that should've been released a long time ago along with his first two titles. Glad some label had the presence of mind to release this one on disc. Way to go! Looking forward to enjoying this piece real soon.

With his first two studio albums there were signs that Bill Withers was going to be not only a vital but significant presence on the music world. His music was full of soul and funk oozing from all ends,his song writing and lyrics filled with as much personal intimacy and reflection as he could muster and he was also able to deliver it in a manner that all people could find something to relate to it. Most importantly,he did so with a good deal of personal humility and strength of character as well. Somehow or other,following his hugely successful Carengie Hall concert documented in the amazingLive at Carnegie Hall album Bill Withers seemed to fade from popularity somewhat. Here was a talent who projected more staying power than most early on,and he seemed to be running out of steam commercial and almost willingly so. At the same time creatively,it was a totally different matter.

Following what appears to be a loose concept about the coming and going in a relationship,the album starts with my favorite cut about a lady in psycho therapy only able to admit everyone's flaws but her own like,as Withers points out "like someone who loves Jesus but not Jews". As with "Ruby Lee","The Same Love That Made Me Laugh" and "Green Grass" these songs feature a wonderfully fluid,percussive folk/funk groove full of electric piano and often the beautiful flute soloing of the often unsung Dorothy Ashby. A similar flavor comes about on "Can We Pretend" and "Make A Smile For Me" On "Stories" it's a very old gospel piano inspired ballad and on "Can We Pretend" Jose Feleciano's guitar playing adds to the richly composed atmosphere of the song.

I had this album back in the '70s and lost it. I've looking for another copy for the longest, i wished that it had been on a cd, but i can change that. this is a great album, some of bill withers best work in my opinion.
its full of life's experiences and observations. i'm glad i was able to locate another copy. for anyone who loves bill withers and is collecting his music, this is a "got to have" piece of work, take my word for it....

Purchased this CD because I love this artist. The clarity of voice, the instruments, the music, absolutely "LOVE" it. The price was reasonable, the product arrived on time, I am very pleased with the purchase. It seems only Amazon specializes with the 'older artists', and the availability of finding thier product online. Very satisfied with my purchase, and I highly recommend it to others.

This CD was hard to find in the record stores. Thank you Amazon for making it available online. It arrived in time for Christmas. The songs are beautiful and soulful, Bill Withers is superb as always.
