The Womack Live is the first live album by soul singer Bobby Womack.
He is another of my “should have been huge” artists and if you like classic soul, you should listen to Bobby Womack. he nearly made it big with his early eighties albums The Poet and The Poet II.
The Womack Live catches him much earlier (it was released in 1970 but I’m not sure when it was recorded).
By then he’d written the #1 hit for The Rolling Stones, It’s All Over Now which Rod Stewart covers on the live album Coast To Coast. He’d also written songs for Wilson Pickett including I’m a Midnight Mover.

What Others Say About The Womack Live
Bobby Womack’s talent is recognised but he’s criticised for not consistently delivering on an album (until The Poet).
I haven’t seen The Womack Live on any best live albums list.
In fact, very little attention is given to Bobby Womack and that’s a terrible waste.
There is even very little at Amazon.
