EDITORS’ NOTES

Bobby Womack had such a surplus of strong recordings through the ’80s that even this compilation of outtakes from his years on the Beverly Glen label is full of winners. There are surprises, too. While Womack’s supple performances of Donny Hathaway’s “Someday We’ll All Be Free” and his own “Gifted One” join the many irresistibly luxuriant slow jams that were the soul man’s forte, “Falling in Love Again” and an electro-funk take on Bobby Moore’s “Searching for My Love” prove how unpredictable he could be.
