The Best ALL AROUND!!!!
Bill Withers is FINALLY inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame (04/15/15) and this album is perhaps the primary reason. While his entire discography houses some amazing work, it was "Just As I Am" that got the people's attention. To this day, "Ain't No Sunshine" is still in constant rotation (even if on Hippie radio). "Harlem" has been one of my favorite songs since I could remember and I'm still haunted (yet fascinated) by the gunshot in "Better Off Dead". Sweet Wanomi and Nilson's "Everybody's Talkin'" make the whole album totally worth the listen. Congratulations to my favorite singer/songwriter of all time...Rock n Roll Hall of Famer, Mr. Bill Withers. -TJ
Perfect pitch, perfect harmony...just...perfect. Thank you, Mr Withers.

By far one of the greatest vocalists to ever record a vast collection of never ending music.
Long live Billy Withers
Hope She'll be Happier
While the whole album is great, "Hope She'll be Happier" is frankly THE best song every written. The depth, emotion and simplicity of the song is indescribable. Bill Withers is a genious. A deeply soulful and talented man.
