Bobby Womack – Please Forgive My Heart (2012)


Bobby Womack

Well, looking back on the year, there is not much more surprising than Damon Albarn producing a Bobby Womack record. The Bravest Man In The Universe was released in June. Womack claimed it was “the best thing I’ve ever done”. Perhaps not, but given the high bar, the statement is extraordinary nonetheless. This man was Sam Cooke’s backing guitarist for goodness sake. He also wrote and originally recorded The Rolling Stones’ first UK No. 1 hit, ‘It’s All Over Now’. ‘Please Forgive My Heart’ is off the album and marks Womack’s first original material since 1994.

    Like a Mark Rothko painting, the hands in this video are strangely hypnotising especially the thumbs, one gently moving…and then pah they are gone, just like the song. In fact I don’t even remember the song, it seemed quite good, I think. I need something more powerful to face up to the dentist though.

  2. A dentist on NYE?! Resolution avoidance?
