The Complete Sussex and Columbia Albums

9CD set • Clamshell box • 40-page booklet

This 9-CD box including the hit-singles “Ain’t No Sunshine”, “Lean On Me” and “Lovely Day” features all nine albums which the poet laureate of Slab Fork, West Virginia, released in his bold, beautiful, brilliant but short-lived recording career. Right from the opening acoustic strum of “Harlem” on his fabulous debut album ‘Just As I Am’ and onto the gutsy pump of “Lonely Town, Lonely Street” which opens the equally brill follow up LP ‘Still Bill’ the sound quality is truly glorious throughout. The live double ‘Carnegie Hall’ like Donny Hathaway ‘Live’ from 1972 has garnished a legendary reputation amongst soul aficionados. All the albums are re-mastered from the original analogue tapes.

The clamshell box contains a 40 page booklet with the story of Bill Withers, beautiful pictures and all the information about the nine CD’s .

This is released on 15 May 2020 via Music On CD.
