listening to 70s today

Soul singer and songwriter Bobby Womack died June 27th at age 70.  Today we listen back to a 1999 interview with him.  Womack started singing gospel with his brothers in the mid 1950’s.  They were discovered by the great soul singer Sam Cooke, who recorded them on his record label.  After recording several gospel albums, Cooke changed their name to The Valentinos and had them record secular music, with Bobby singing lead.  The Valentinos had a hit with Bobby Womack’s  song It’s All Over Now.  The song was covered by the Rolling Stones and became their first international hit.   Bobby Womack and wrote and recorded several other songs that other singers did well with.  Janis Joplin recorded Trust Me, J Geils covered Looking for a Love.  Womack wrote several songs for Wilson Picket, including I’m a Midnight Mover. Womack wrote a recorded the title song from the 1972 film Across 110th Street, which was also used in Quentin Tarantino’s film Jackie Brown.
