A Documented History of Bobby Womack

uncredited writer, Phonograph Record, November 1975

HE'S WRITTEN hits for Rod Stewart, the Rolling Stones, Wilson Pickett and the J. Geils Band. He's played on countless sessions from Aretha Franklin to the Allman Brothers. At present he's finishing up a tour of Europe and the States with Rod Stewart and the Faces and preparing for the release of Safety Zone, thought to be his most adventurous and "progressive" album to date. With the help of Herbie Hancock, Wah Wah Watson and other LA session greats under the direction of David Rubinson [Pointer Sisters, Herbie Hancock, The Headhunters] this next album should establish Bobby Womack as a major talent in his own right at long last.
