Bobby Womack - Harry Hippie. Album 1972 9 Songs. This album was recorded at American Sound Studio in Memphis and Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Muscle Shoals, Ala. with Womack using the venerable session musicians in both locales. A former sideman himself at both studios, Womack had an innate bond with the players. Rather than simply use them for backing, he formed an integrated unit, especially on Simple Man, Ruby Dean, and I Can Understand It. Womans Gotta Have It and Thing Called Love show that Womack was quickly mastering the smooth but still idiosyncratic style that would become his signature for much of the &apos. As compelling as Bobby Womack's lacerating baritone may be, it still has that uncanny ability to be an engaging voice. This album has that timeliness appeal. It features the chart-buster in the mid-tempo number Woman's Gotta Have It. It was a number one single on the Billboard R&B charts. In addition to the aforementioned song, Womack also features a host of other granite numbers like Ruby Dean and I Can Understand It.
