The man has been making music for literally half a century, beginning in 1954 with his run as a prepubescent member of Curtis Womack & the Womack Brothers and culminating with a 2009 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.
Along the way he played guitar for Aretha Franklin, collaborated with Sly & the Family Stone, penned ballads for Janis Joplin, and still found time to pump out twenty-six studio albums and a slew of chart-topping singles all under his own name.
To say that an artist of Womack’s stature is in need of one last career-affirming record is to entirely miss the point altogether, but that is exactly what Womack himself has managed to do – miss the point, albeit fantastically – with the release of this year’s ‘The Bravest Man In The Universe‘, a remarkably powerful collection of songs that somehow celebrates his storied past by simultaneously pushing himself further from it.
