he was in a bad way at the phil earlier in the year, getting muddled up and slumping down. seemed to force himself to do an encore, like a boxer in the 12th. someone was holding him up. that voice was still in full effect. maybe the most up for it crowd i've ever seen.
lookin' for a love again is his best work.
A bonafide musical legend. RIP.
had loads of things wrong with him, didn't he? :(
proper innovator, when you listen to the production and his delivery on his early seventies stuff it doesn't even sound like it was from the seventies now.
but facts of life and lookin' for a love again are great
understanding too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOcmdyf2PNI
Remember seeing him at Glastonbury last year, friends went to see Mumford & Sons but I went for Womack on my own. Was the best decision I made all weekend. Phenomenal performance.
This BBC doc from last year is well worth an hour of your time. Amazing how much stuff he was involved in.
