Bobby Womack: Someday We'll All Be Free (Beverly Glen); Womack & Womack: Radio M.U.S.C. Man (Elektra)

J.D. Considine, Musician, September 1985

GREAT SINGING is its own reward, and that's particularly true of the Womacks, Bobby, Cecil and Linda. Their voices carry not only the experience of more than two decades in pop music, but also the wisdom of a vocal tradition that stretches back through the glory days of gospel, and their ability to apply their gifts to contemporary R&B is awesome.
