BOBBY WOMACK (March 4, 1944 – June 27, 2014) | in memoriam


“I was used to basically working by myself, answering to myself,” Womack explained, and this independent streak made him both successful and destructive in equal measure. In the early 1970’s, Womack had a creative hot streak – the title track to the Womack-penned 1970 blaxploitation movie soundtrack Across 110th Street ranks among his finest work; his slow-grooving crossover hits during this period included ‘That’s The Way I Feel About Cha’ and ‘Woman’s Gotta Have It.”’

She’s tellin’ me about the things that her girlfriend’s got

What she ain’t got and she wants me to go out and get ’em

But, girl, I can’t be in two places at one time
