What he’s saying is always personal and often in the first person. Tunes like “That’s the way I feel about Cha” and “If you want my love, put something down on it” demonstrate Bobby’s amazing musical range and skill in the softer register as well as on the James brown meter.
He encompasses falsetto traits of Al Green, the despairing vulnerability of Marvin Gaye and screaming sensation of James brown. All these geniuses and really Bobby is right up there with them, in them and they are in him. Bobby Womack simply is not one artist. Like all giants he is beyond genre. The fact he has written for and been covered by so many is testament to that fact.

single "It's All Over Now"
When you put on a Bobby Womack CD, You ‘re never alone. You have Bobby talking to you- giving you advice- roaring at you to make you understand what he’s been through. Bobby is probably the most under rated music artist alive today. God bless Bobby. We thank him for being Bobby Womack and being there for us.
