The Poet Vinyl


The original tapes are sourced for the remasters of The Poet. The Poet is pressed on heavyweight 180 gram vinyl, making the album available in the vinyl marketplace for the first time in decades. The historic album is packaged with extensive liner notes by R&B scholar Bill Dahl.

Shortly after its release in 1981, The Poet rose to the #1 slot on Billboard’s Top R&B Album chart, and it went on to become the biggest selling full-length album of Bobby Womack’s career. "If You Think You're Lonely Now," the album’s leading single, went to #3 on Billboard’s Hot Soul Singles chart. The album also yielded two additional chart singles, “Secrets” and “Where Do We Go From Here.”
