Blues on Thursday! Blues on Thursday! Blues on Thursday!I was listening to some Bill Withers today. To me he is a poet, psychologist and philosopher -- all at the same time. His lyrics are thought-provoking and his music kind of uncomplicated, yet sophisticated.
I more or less stumbled upon this song from his Still Bill album today (originally released in 1972, A&M Records). It reminded me of Howlin' Wolf, and I thought it might be one of The Wolf's songs, but the lyrics are credited to Bill Withers . At the end of the song, Bill even "quotes" The Wolf's famous uh-hoo-hoo.
Live at Carnegie Hall album (1973). It has LONELINESS written all over.
