2012 EU reissue on 180g vinyl LP - Just As I Am is the auspicious 1971 debut from soul legend Bill Withers. Produced by Booker T. Jones, and featuring backing from L.A. stalwarts Jim Keltner, Chris Ethridge, and Stephen Stills, Just As I Am is anchored by the outright, stone cold classic “Ain’t No Sunshine” along with other, lesser known, but equally powerful tracks such as “Grandma’s Hands” and “Better Off Dead." A very heavy and compelling debut from one of soul music’s greatest songwriters

 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. 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. Even when he's doing covers, Withers treats them as if they are his own compositions and handles them with great delicacy.
