In a career laden with highlights and hallmarks in the annals of soul history, Just as I Am gets rather overlooked as one of the best soul debuts ever issued. Remastered and repackaged as a part of Sony's DualDisc series, Just as I Am gets cleaned up and presented to a new generation of listeners who may have missed out the first time. And with this remastering comes an intimacy, warmth, and immediacy to the recordings that was only hinted at with previous versions; it's almost as if Withers is in a living room singing to a small group of people, rather than making a record. Of course, the instantly recognizable anthem "Ain't No Sunshine" gets all of the acclaim it so richly deserves, but tracks like "Harlem" and "Better Off Dead" also warrant kudos for the intensity and maturity of their performances.

Bill Withers' first two albums were arguably his best works, his most personal and unaffected music with a distinctive sound by virtue of their lean production, especially his debut, Just As I Am. At the turn of the 1960s into the 1970s, he was a unique presence, as we're reminded by this Raven Records two-LP-on-one-CD package. Withers' first album is otherwise unavailable on CD, and the mastering here brings the audio quality up dramatically, making the listening experience close and intimate, almost like a private studio performance. Withers' songs are so personal that they only gain intensity from this treatment – not just the original songs, such as "Ain't No Sunshine" or "Grandma's Hands," but even his cover of "Let It Be." The only real decision that fans will have to make concerns his second album, Still Bill, which is available in the United States with two live bonus tracks; for anyone owning this disc, buying Sony's domestic release of that album may prove superfluous. As an added enticement, Raven has also included bonus tracks of "Better Days," from the soundtrack to the movie Man and Boy, and a version of "It's All Over Now," by Withers and Bobby Womack.

By the time Bill Withers made this, his debut recording, he'd already served for many years in the US Navy, had a job as a milkman and installed toilets in jets for American airplane construction companies. All the while, he bombarded record companies with self-produced demo tapes that landed in the dustbin. In 1971 came his breakthrough when the successful producer Booker T. Jones hauled him onboard and sent him into the studio with guitarist Stephen Stills, drummer Al Jackson and bass player Donald "Duck" Dunn. In his debut album, Withers demonstrates his universal, mature competence as a singer, composer and performer, which was hardly surpassed in his later recordings.

Label: Sarah Matthews | Release Year: 2016

Sarah Matthews was born and raised in San Francisco, CA. She is what you'd call "blue-eyed soul" or some say she's an old soul. This album brings to light the different and often complex personas that exist within one being. Part of being human is trying to find ways to relate to others in the world. Relationships are also complex and many of the songs reflect the multitude of emotions she goes through with those who were close. "As I Am" sort of covers a variety of genres to exemplify the fact that people can be many kinds of performers and artists. Sarah studied vocal jazz and classical voice at SF State and is currently working on her masters in music education at Holy Names University. She is a music teacher by day but a bad-ass musician by night.
