Artist: Bill Withers
Title: Menagerie
Genre: Soul, R&B, Smooth Soul, Funk
Label: © Columbia Records
Release Date: 1977

Menagerie is the sixth studio album by American R&B singer Bill Withers, released in 1977 on the Columbia label. Menagerie is overall more uptempo and less introspective in feel than Withers' previous albums. None of the songs tackle intensely personal emotions of the kind which lent a dark edge to earlier Withers tracks such as "Use Me", "Better Off Dead" or "Who Is He (And What Is He to You)". The arrangements are also generally upbeat and breezy, with "I Want to Spend the Night" and "Tender Things" having a distinct Latin feel, and "Lovely Night for Dancing" and "She Wants To (Get On Down)" showing disco influences. The lead single "Lovely Day" has gone on to become one of Withers' signature songs, particularly in the UK, where it was a top 10 hit both on its original release and again in a remixed version in 1988. Menagerie peaked at #16 on the R&B chart and #39 on the Billboard 200. It was Withers' biggest-selling album in the UK, where it reached #27.

Bill Withers - Naked & Warm (1976/2009) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz


Artist: Bill Withers
Title: Naked & Warm

Recorded: 1976 at Record Plant, Los Angeles, CA


Menagerie (1977) takes a step backwards, although it does contain his sunny “Lovely Day”, famous for Withers holding a note for 18 seconds. Despite titles such as “She Wants to (Get on Down)” (which also found its way in the movie Looking for Mr. Goodbar), the bulk of material is soft and gentle, as indicated by other titles such as “Tender Things” and “Lovely Night for Dancing”. These songs border on the sopoforic more than seductive.
