While the avalanche of bands are flooding the internet and airwaves this week from Austin via SXSW, I thought I would take it down a few db and take a turn for the mellow this Friday night with a concert (short one) by the legendary Bill Withers, recorded live in London by the BBC in 1973.
Withers music goes a bit beyond classification, and that’s a good thing; because his music and his message is universal.
And for a Friday night, ending a pretty hectic and somewhat insane week – and where a lot of high-voltage listening has been taking place, a few notes and words from Bill Withers works wonders right about now.
Give a listen and see what I mean.
The weekend should be pretty nuts.
