The 20 most underrated R&B albums of all time


No. 12 Still Bill (1972) by Bill Withers

Withers’ is one of the 70s most underrated singer-songwriters– soul music’s answer to Paul Simon or James Taylor. Withers’ second album boasts two of his biggest hits (“Use Me,” and “Lean On Me”), but many younger fans know the singles better than the album. Regardless, this album is a must-have for fans of introspective, personalized soul music. Withers would continue to release hits throughout the remainder of the 70s, but this is his most fully-realized LP.
