Bill Withers came into his own on his third album, Still Bill. Released in 1972, the record is a remarkable summation of a number of contemporary styles: the smooth soul coming out of Philly, smoky, late-night funk via Bobby Womack, bluesy Southern soul, and '70s. It's rich, subtly layered music, but its best attribute is that it comes on easy, never sounding labored or overworked

Bill Withers comes across as someone you’d pass everyday without paying much mind – a humble, yet very perceptive gentleman. Originally from a small coal-mining town in West Virginia, he served 9 years in the US Navy before taking his music abilities more seriously. Bill Withers is probably best known for his wonderful hit, ‘Lovely Day’ – somehow capturing the laziness of a hot summer afternoon perfectly. Of equal measure is the exquisite ‘Ain’t no sunshine’, a song that was given ascintillating. What would superstardom have done with Mr Bill Withers, for example ?The title of this album ‘Still Bill’ says it all really. Even having had two huge hits in ‘Grandma’s hands’ and ‘Ain’t no sunshine’ (the latter reaching n. on the Billboard Pop Charts and receiving a Grammy Award), and a well-received debut LP, ‘Just As I.
