Bill Withers - the same love that made me laugh.mp3

Although recorded in '74 for his album 'Justments, Bill had written this track as early as 1968. In '67 Bill arrived in LA to try and get his music career off the ground. He was working by day and recording demo's by night, but no labels seemed to show an interest in signing him, and it wasn't until 1971 that Clarence Avant's Sussex Records offered him a deal.
After two studio albums on Sussex (Just As I Am/Still Bill) containing such classics as "Ain't No Sunshine" and "Lean On Me" respectively, 'Justments was the last album that Bill recorded on the Sussex Records label before it went bust and closed down the following year ('75).
The four Sussex albums are Bill at his best (also see Live At Carnegie Hall), and although 'Justments hasn't been re-issued on CD you can get the first two on 1 CD,,, bargain!
