Bobby Womack Looks Back

uncredited writer, Phonograph Record, April 1974

Bobby Womack's latest hit is called ‘Lookin' For a Love’. By no coincidence, that was also the title of his first hit single, on Sam Cooke's SAR label, with the Valentinos. Bobby has grown and matured in the 12 years since then, much in the same direction many believe his mentor Cooke would have gone if his career hadn't been cut short by an untimely death. And Bobby Womack is one man who hasn't forgotten his roots.
