EDITORS’ NOTES

Seventies soul icon Bill Withers has a passionate, sandpapery voice and a gift for writing poignant yet catchy songs. In the friendship tribute of “Lean on Me,” the tense downbeat blues of “Who Is He? (And What Is He to You?),” and the summery disco of “Lovely Day,” his easygoing delivery leaves the impression that the songs just flowed out of him. A final valedictory duet with jazz saxophonist Grover Washington, Jr., “Just the Two of Us,” perfectly captures the era’s groovy romance.

Mr. Withers, you have a gift.

The business side of music hasn't always been kind to you (so I've read), and you've walked away from it. Understandably so. What I want to say is "thank you" - for putting up with users, with prejudice, with stupidity, and giving all of us something of yourself. Your music is heartfelt. It's a gift. And it is truly beautiful.

Bill Withers tribute

Ed Sheeran performed a cover of Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine" on Stephen Colbert's Late Show. Hopefully it will bring his fans to appreciate not only this song but all of Bill Withers' repertoire!
