Across 110th Street Bobby Womack 2CD
'Across 110th Street is one of the finest (and most successful) creations to emerge from black America.' - UNCUT
 
Three of Bobby Womack's most influential 1970s recordings - including the iconic Blaxpoitation soundtrack, 'Across 110th Street' - presented in a deluxe 2CD digibook package.
 
---------
 
Bobby Womack was originally discovered as a teenager singing Gospel music by the late Sam Cooke. Blessed with one of the warmest, most readily-identifiable voices in Soul music, he carved out his reputation with a series of classic albums and singles in the early 1970s, re-emerging again in the 1980s with his career masterpieces, 'The Poet and The Poet II', the latter achieving platinum status in Europe alone.
 
This unique 2cd set concentrates on the early 1970s, and is built around the award-winning soundtrack to 'Across 110th Street' (1972). Womack's music for the critically-acclaimed - albeit violent, bloodthirsty and deeply disturbing - Blaxploitation movie starring Anthony Quinn, Yaphet Kotto and Anthony Franciosa is perhaps Womack's most celebrated album and remains one of the most important soundtracks of the genre.
 
The second disc features Womack's two subsequent studio LPs, 'Facts Of Life' (1973) and 'Looking For A Love Again' (1974), which were, at that stage of his career, his biggest-selling albums.
 
Between them, these three albums include a handful of Womack's biggest hit singles, notably 'Across 110th Street', 'Nobody Wants You When You're Down And Out', the million-selling 'Lookin' For A Love', and 'You're Welcome', 'Stop On By'. Also featured are a number of Bobby's famously eccentric, unlikely cover versions, including Dylan's 'All Along The Watchtower', the Goffin and King classic 'A Natural Woman', and Bacharach and David's 'The Look Of Love'.
