A repackaging of 1993's Midnight Mover: The Bobby Womack Collection, Anthology – released by Capitol's The Right Stuff subsidiary in 2003 – is an excellent overview (cheapo identikit design aside) that features just about every significant moment of Womack's most productive years. All his biggest hits, including "Lookin' for a Love," "Woman's Gotta Have It," "Nobody Wants You When You're Down and Out," "Daylight," and "Across 110th Street" are featured here, along with some album cuts that most casual fans will have no trouble appreciating. Short of picking up all the albums released during this era, you could not do any better.
The issue of the best of Bobby Womack's "The Poet" trilogy that was released in the first half of the 1980's on the independent Beverly Glen label. The soul legend had reinvented his entire sound structure, instead opting for a light jazz feel that was quite popular at that time. The second volume of the series featured several duets with Patti Labelle, which helped prompt A&R at MCA to sign her up at the end of her Philly International tenure. The second disc of this set features acoustic versions from the trilogy as well. Best Of The Poets album Featured players on these sessions include George Benson, Nathan East, Womack & Womack, The Crusaders' Wilton Felder, The Waters, Paulinho da Costa and many more.
Bobby Womack's move to the Columbia imprint heralded a shift from the earthy deep soul sensibility of his previous records to a slicker, more sophisticated approach in step with the changing sound of contemporary R&B. Somewhat surprisingly, the transition not only proves seamless, but in fact Home Is Where the Heart Is looms as Womack's most compelling LP in some time. Though recorded in both Muscle Shoals and Los Angeles, it's to the album's credit that its disparate parts fit together like a well-oiled machine. Womack's wonderfully gruff vocals adapt well to the warmth and elegance of songs like "How Long," "Something for My Head," and "One More Chance on Love," and he performs with a passion and focus absent from his final United Artists efforts.
