I am in the mood for some music today. Bill Withers has one of the most distinctive voices around. Second in his music is that bending of the keys on the keyboard and the bump bump groove of the bass line. Use Me was Withers second biggest hit. From the album Still Bill, Use Me was released in 1972 and reached number two on the Billboard Hot 100. The album was reportedly recorded in eight hours for all of $750. The film Still Bill named after the album, is a captivating 2009 documentary that provides an intimate portrait of the West Virginia native, from his childhood days, to his navy career and onto this soul legends musical career.
