Bill Withers – Menagerie

Condition: Brand New
Ships from: Melbourne


Since the documentary "Still Bill" Bill Withers has made something of a comeback, but there are many who - although he hasn't released an album since 1985 - would claim that he never disappeared from the scene. His musical heritage has found its place in our hearts and has spread to our subconscious - like the first track on "Menagerie": "Lovely Day". Each song is smoother than the previous one and the album is the perfect soundtrack for the coming summer. Every note is absolutely relaxed - even in songs where things get a little faster - and has a consistency that Bill Withers shows at its peak.

"Menagerie" was awarded gold back then. This is the first time since 1978 that "Menagerie" is released as a re-issue on vinyl!


With guitarist Ray Parker Jr. ("Ghostbusters"), Drummer Russ Kunkel (Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Linda Ronstadt) as well as the bass player Jerry Knight (Raydio) and Keni Burke (Curtis Mayfield, Diana Ross, Dusty Springfield) bill Withers also had a a select team of musicians at your disposal, whose capabilities are enhanced by the differentiated and yet very warm sound of the audiophile 180g pressing only really comes into its own "I'll be back." (Good Times, October / November 2013)
