Bill Withers – Menagerie - Columbia – JC 34903
Bill Withers has been making a comeback since the release of the documentary Still Bill, but there are many who would argue that, although he hasn't recorded an album since 1985, he never really left.
His musical legacy has found a place in our hearts and settled into our subconscious, none more so than Menagerie's opening track "Lovely Day". Every song as smooth as the next, this upbeat album is perfect for the summer to come. There's a relaxed vibe running through every note - even in the more up-tempo songs - and a consistency here that shows Bill at his best.
Now's the perfect time to add this certified gold record that hasn't been reissued on vinyl since 1978 to your ever-growing Bill Withers collection!
