Bobby Womack X Bill Withers - "Ain't No Sunshine" Cover [Gilles Peterson Exclusive]
On January 29, Gilles Peterson is joined by legendary soul singer-songwriter Bobby Womack and his guitar. The two hung out for 2 hours earlier this month, discussing Bobby’s life and music career, which he started in the late 50s and has continued to this day with his 2012 release, The Bravest Man In The World (check OKP’s Top 12 Songs of 2012). He also pulled out his guitar and performed some impromptu jams and covers. Before the show airs, BBC6Music gave us a sneak peek into the episode, treating us to Bobby’s cover of “Ain’t No Sunshine”. Afterward, he goes on for a few about Bill Withers‘ low profile in the last few years. Listen to the snippet below and be sure to tune into Gilles Peterson’s next episode on the 29th.
