Editorial Reviews

Still Bill is the second studio album from Bill Withers, originally released in 1972 and featuring the mega-hit Lean On Me (the first track ever to reach #1 on the Soul chart and the Billboard Hot 100). Featuring members of the Watts 103rd St. Rhythm Band, Still Bill also features the funky classic, Use Me, amongst a handful of other powerful songwriting and performance efforts. Possibly Withers' finest album from start to finish, it's reissued here on 180 gram vinyl in a deluxe reproduction of the original sleeve.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still soulful, still brilliant March 30, 2003
Format:Audio CD
As great as Bill Withers 1971 debut album "Just As I Am" was, Bill showed exactly what he was capable of with the follow up album. Taking the production reins himself when Booker T. Jones was unavailable, and enlisting rhythmic and co-production assistance from ex-Charles Wright band members James Gadson, Benorce Blackmon, Ray Jackson, and Melvin Dunlap, he surpassed everyone's expectations. Led by the #1 Pop and R&B smash "Lean On Me" and the follow up "Use Me"(#2 Pop and R&B)the whole album has a great laid back, funky feel. My personal faves besides the two big hits are "Who Is He, And What Is He To You" recently covered by Meshell N'degeocello, also the touching "Let Me In Your Life, and the groove "Kissing My Love" whose beat was lifted by Dr. Dre on "Let Me Ride" and on Tara Kemp's "Hold Me Tight". This new reissue is nicely filled out with two tracks from the live album recorded at Carnegie Hall. After being out of print on CD for a number of years, it's great to see this classic album available once again.

5.0 out of 5 stars +10 extra stars... A folk-funk masterpiece!! March 7, 2003
Format:Audio CD
One of my all-time favorite albums. Following his big surprise hit with "Ain't No Sunshine," Withers insisted on the right to produce his follow-up album, and the results, as you can hear, were stellar. He rounded up some pals from the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band, guys that he jammed with regularly in the 'hood, and the tight, compact ensemble sizzled their way through his latest set of plainspoken, soul-piercing funk ballads. This album includes chart-topping hits such as "Use Me," "Another Day To Run," and "Use Me," but it also has lesser-known emotionally raw powerhouses like "Who Is He (And What Is He To You?)" and "I Don't Want You On My Mind" that tend to get forgotten in the foggy haze of various best-of collections. "Lonely Street, Lonely Town" is another fine example of Wither's empathic humanist world view, a soft folkie sentiment with a killer funk groove to back it up. Amazingly, this is the first time this album has been reissued in its entirety: snap it up while you can, and enjoy one of the best records the early 1970s had to offer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bill Withers' 2nd LP February 8, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Bill Withers' 2nd LP was also his highest charting album, reaching #4 in 1972. Amazingly enough, this is the first time this album has been available in the U.S. on CD. Besides the big hits, "Use Me" and "Lean on Me" it also includes the much covered album cut "Who Is He" and the minor Top 40 hit "Kissing My Love." These are 10 strong songs that show Withers reaching a peak in his songwriting. Also, check out album tracks "Lonely Town, Lonely Street" and "Another Day To Run". This CD includes liner notes by Withers himself. The 2 Bonus tracks are taken from the 1973 album "Live At Carnegie Hall" which is a superb CD in itself. If you only know Withers music from his numerous Hits collections, than dip in to his catalog. "Still Bill" is not only one of Bill Withers best albums, but an overlooked classic from the 70's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Music February 4, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
For years, Bill Withers fans have had to be satisficed ("satisfied", but "sacrificed") with "best of" and compilation albums that, although well intentioned, have not reflected this artist's complete vision at the time the album was produced. Finally -- now that these original recordings have been re-mastered, we have a second chance to hear the work as Bill and his producers meant for them to be heard.
This is a great album -- Lyrical, emotional, funky, blue-zy ... Still Bill.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who Bill Is And What He Is To You November 14, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Often times it seems as if a creative endeavor seems to have been building for a long time. There are those times however when such an artistic venture seems to crystallize almost instantly. With his debut Just As I Am a year earlier Bill displayed his talents to the world and showcased that his was a sound so seasoned and fully flowered that it sounded like someone who'd been recording for years,not the work of a newcomer. There was the possibility that such a mature debut could have the effect for him of grabbing defeat from the jaws of victory. After all this was the height of the singer-songwriter era and,as individual as Bill's sound and writing style was,it could've just been all too easily neglected. Lucky for everyone involved Bill Withers' still very young career was just getting started here.

For the sheer quality of funk alone this album has that covered down cold. "Lonely Town,Lonely Street" opens the album up with a hard,heavy wah wah fueled jam with some strong bluesy soul songwriting. "Who Is He (And Wha tIs He To You)" puts the same effect to Bill interpreting the lyrics of romantic suspicion. And of course there's the clavinet led hit "Use Me",where he's basically giving in because..well as he points out all is equal on that front. "Kissing My Love" goes right into the groove deep as one can get and the faster funk of "Another Day To Run" showcases Bill on a character sketch on the theme of the junkie's lament. And of course he's got personal accountability covered on the closing jam "Take It All In And Check It All Out".

That,of course only scratches the surface of this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic album from Classy artist!
Bill withers one of the most underrated artist ever. Besides his well known hits, he brings a mellow and sensitive style to all of his work. Truly from the heart.
