Bill Withers' debut album is a soul master work. Often overlooked as one of the greatest Soul debuts ever recorded, Withers painfully beautiful voice reminds us that real music comes from the heart. Produced, arranged, and featured on keys, famed organist Booker T Jones is just as crucial in the foundation of Just As I Am as is Withers haunting lyrics and performance. Featuring the timeless 'Ain't No Sunshine', the unshakeable opener 'Harlem', and the superb McCartney and Lennon penned 'Let It Be', this is a no brainer. Pressed on 180g vinyl.
