Don't be fooled just by 'Lean on Me', this album contains many other songs in a totally different style. On September 7, 1972, the album was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), having recorded at least 500,000 copies sold. Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab has been the undisputed pioneer and leader in audiophile recordings since the company's inception in 1977.

After 'Just As I Am' (MOVLP378) Music On Vinyl is proud to present the next gem of Bill Withers 'Still Bill'. His proclivity for authenticity extends to the record's other big hit: the sexual, funk-laden "Use Me," which reached No. At least that's the way it seems, but reading the liner notes really made it clear that the path for the 30 y/o aircraft fitter was anything but easy, even after the success of the first BW album. He sings of being a willing partner in a bad relationship on Use Me ("If it feels this good getting used / Keep on using me ‘til you use me up").and "Take it All in and Check it All Out" have lyrics that grabbed my attention the first time I heard them. In 2020, Still Bill ranked number 333 on Rolling Stone 's revised edition of the " 500 Greatest Albums of All Time" list. This high level of songwriting is sustained throughout the record, making this probably his best album ever. Its accessibility notwithstanding, "Still Bill" has a depth and complexity that may take several spins before the listener picks up on it.

In 2007, Still Bill was included in The Guardian 's list of "1,000 albums to hear before you die", with an accompanying essay that said the album "contains two of [Withers'] most epochal and best-loved compositions 'Lean on Me' and 'Who Is He (And What Is He to You)? After rising into the Top 5 of the Billboard Album charts and attaining gold status within a year of release, Still Bill has long been evaluated not by sales – but according to its merit, spirit, and agelessness. And there are some good tracks here (I quite like Withers delving into funk), along with some pretty standard soul music. This high level of songwriting is sustained throughout the record, making this probably his best record ever. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.Writing for Rolling Stone in 1972, Vince Aletti regarded it as an improvement over Withers' debut album Just as I Am, particularly because of the singer's production, which sustains even the less exceptional songs here. I don’t understand some of the negative feedback Chalkys get - I have never had any problem and would absolutely recommend them.
