Gene Townsel -- "There's No Use In Hiding"

If you are looking for one of those albums with virtually no filler material, go get Gene Townsel's 1978 release Time Wounds All Heels, originally on the Dobre label. The album is also available as a digitally  remastered CD (Essential Media Group, 2011).
According to amazon's bio, Gene Townsel " has appeared on stages around the world from Acapulco to Tokyo and has taught generations of up-coming vocalists as a vocal coach and arranged scores for countless artists. His rare 70s R&B album "Time Wounds All Heels", has over the decades become a collectors item in the US and Europe, and has spawned a re-release of a single from the album in England - with the full original album finally seeing the light of day in the digital domain in the US. Featured on the album are 4 original Townsel compositions including "Time Wounds All Heals," plus soulful renditions of two obscure Bill Withers tunes. All selections newly remastered."


And here's the title song of the album. I just love it.
