Bill Withers - "Dedicated to You My Love"

For the late night heads. Most folks know Bill Withers' voice from "Lean On Me" or "Ain't No Sunshine". Or maybe it's "Lovely Day". Maybe even "Just the Two of Us". With classics like those under his belt, you'd expect Bill to be one of the most revered singer/songwriters of all time. Truth is, he's one of the best, even if he's lightweight underappreciated in the canon of American popular music. The ideas behind his songs are simple and universal, allowing his music to transcend the boundaries of culture or genre. Beyond the anthems, Bill also happens to have a catalog full of slept-on albums and hidden gems. Just ask Yeezy.
