Doin’ It His Own Way: Bobby Womack
Barney Hoskyns, 'Womack Winners', 1989
WHEN BOBBY WOMACK called his seventeenth solo album The Last Soul Man and set out on 1987s quasi-missionary tour of the same name, he was doing himself an injustice. To pigeonhole himself as a Soul Man was to miss the point that he has consistently been as eccentric and unorthodox a purveyor of "soul" of gospel-rooted rhythm n blues music as anyone from Ray Charles to Prince.
