So, BillG plays "Human" by RagnBone man, followed by Rebecca's 'station identification' and then this comes on.  Total flashback to this weekend, I literally played these two tracks back to back for friends while drinking.  ROCK ON and FUNK ON!!  Kudos to BnR as always!!  Long Live RP!!

And this is a 10 for me.  The groove, the voice, the fact that I've had the exact same sentiment in my past.  Timeless and classic and just freaking awesome (and the entire album "Still Bill" is freaking awesome....we need a few more BW tracks on here)

Bill 'The Lung' Withers has no equal, period. This may be his very best song, of many excellent ones. The voice, the lyrics, the groove, all mesh perfectly. Lenny and Mick's cover is also excellent, but I can't give a cover a higher rating than the original, unless the original really sucked and the coverer rescued it. Clearly not the case here. c.

I really love this, but I think I love Mick Jagger and Lenny Kravitz's version more.

I've always loved the way he sings: use me "Öpp"

Man--hard to believe there was a time that a song this good was on the RADIO.

Came on AM  radio ... WLS Chicago all the way way up to Northern Ontario... Came on between Tull  and Floyd or sometimes after Sly and before Joni.
Amazing time, really. Early 70s !

So WHY is  "Ain't NO Sunshine" not begin played??....  Summer of '71

Definitely a classic of classics. Have any of you heard Jacqui Naylor's version? Very smoky and sultry.
