Bobby Womack: My Prescription (LP, 180 Vinyl)

(2016/Premium Cool) 12 tracks
 -
180gm vinyl LP pressing. Womack returned to American in 1969 to cut My Prescription, also produced by Moman, at a time that the venue was becoming exceptionally hot with visits from the likes of Elvis, Dusty Springfield, Neil Diamond and others. Womack's sophomore album may however well be one of the most demonstrative showcases of studio and session crew, incandescent on a finely-honed program of classy and soulful performances, with the singer in full control. Tracks like 'How I Miss You Baby,' 'Arkansas State Prison' and 'I Can't Take It Like A Man' stand as some of Womack's greatest moments, and taken as a whole, My Prescription stands not only the man's first truly great solo album, but also a timeless slice of sophisticated southern soul-making.

Woman's Gotta Have It

 

Gospel lies deep at the heart of Bobby Womack’s music. His solo soul sides are streetwise and sensuous, but he and his brothers started singing in church before Sam Cooke sent them in a secular direction.

Born March 4, 1944 in Cleveland, Ohio, Bobby’s father molded his offspring into a self-contained gospel unit, The Womack Brothers. Bobby was only nine when Cooke saw them perform at Friendship Baptist Church in 1953. His two brothers were even younger, necessitating his mother’s support. She was still carrying diapers for my baby brother,” says Bobby. “He had peed on the stage while I was singing!” Eventually they hit the gospel highway. “I quit school in the tenth, Harry quit school in the ninth, and Cecil quit school in the eighth. My other two brothers had finished school,” Bobby says. “So we just decided not to go back.”

Cooke prevailed on the lads to sign with his SAR label in 1961. Their first 45 was gospel before he convinced them to change their name to The Valentinos and do R&B. “He had a vision about, 'You gotta look like The Valentinos. Rudolph was a lover man. I mean, women went nuts about him!’” says Womack. A lot of folks went nuts about The Valentinos’ Lookin’ For A Love, a #9 R&B hit in ’62 on SAR. Doubling on southpaw guitar, Bobby co-wrote It’s All Over Now for his group at SAR, but their ’64 original didn’t hit. After Cooke’s tragic death later that year, Womack played his axe behind Ray Charles and Wilson Pickett, writing several hits for The Wicked One. He came into his own at Chips Moman’s American Studios in Memphis, first as a session guitarist and then as a singer.

Bobby’s unlikely revival of Fly Me To The Moon, cut at American because he’d given his best songs to Pickett, broke the R&B Top 20 in 1968 on Liberty’s Minit imprint, as did a cover of The Mamas & The Papas’ California Dreamin’. Womack’s muse returned as he hit with How I Miss You Baby in ’69, More Than I Can Stand the next year on Liberty, the #2 R&B seller That’s The Way I Feel About Cha on United Artists, and in 1972 his first R&B chart-topper, Woman’s Gotta Have It (it only made it to #60 pop). Sharing authorship with Linda Womack (Cooke’s daughter and Bobby’s brother Cecil’s wife) and Memphis songsmith Darryl Carter, Bobby preached the virtues of treating women with respect on the tender treatise, done at American with the studio’s house band.

Womack was a perennial contender after that on UA, hitting with Harry Hippie, an updated Nobody Knows You When You’re Down And Out, and the title track to the ‘73 blaxploitation flick ‘Across 110th Street.’ He was just getting started.
