Today we remember Bobby Womack

The sad news of soul legend Bobby Womack passing away felt like a hit in the face. The man passed away friday the 27th of June 2014 – and this is my short little tribute to one of my favorite soul singers.

When I hear the name, Bobby Womack, the song “Across 110th Street” is the first song that pops up into my mind.

 

Quentin Tarantino brought this soul classic to peoples mind by including the song in his crime-blaxploitation-movie Jackie Brown, a movie adaption of Elmore Leonards novel “Rum Punch

 

The whole soundtrack to “Across 11th Street” is avaliable on YouTube, you can even watch the whole movie here!

 

This is how I remember Bobby Womack, may he rest in peace.
You´ll won´t be forgotten!
