So to co-inside with the release of Bobby Womack new record “The Bravest Man In The Universe” he has a new space man video “What Ever Happened To The Times”.
All space odyssey woahh!! Another banger from this record. Having now listened to the whole album is rather good; But at times some of the production by Richard Russell and Damon album lets it down, sounding a bit basic some parts just does not have the same magic space dust that James Black and Jaime XX manager to conjure up. Bobby by no way lets the side down though his vocals and songs sound stunning a real return to form. The new sound I am sure may not appeal to the older generation but it’s great blend of new electronic Soul with pure raw Soul for sure is a winner. Like Billy Holiday you can hear Bobby Womack’s life through his voice and also the huge amount of cigarettes/cognac consumed.
Bobby is making good progress recovering from cancer at the mo and we wish him well. He is one of the Soul’s living legends so basically just go buy the record you won’t be disappointed! You can grab a copy of the new records here at Itunes.
