'Save The Children' was Bobby Womack's only release for Dick Griffey's Solar Records. Produced by Womack, Keg Johnson, Cecil and Kevin Womack and keyboard player Frank Hamilton, this was a fine attempt to straddle both Bobby's 60s soul-based and pop, while reflecting the influences of late 80s hip hop. Â· Highlights include the snappy 'Baby I'm Back', 'She's My Girl' and 'Now We're Together' but it's on 'Too Close For Comfort', a ballad co-written with HT Payne, that Womack comes closest to rekindling the kind of sound found on some of the best-known tracks. Â· The title track (not to be confused with similarly named songs by Marvin Gaye and The Intruders) reached the US R&B charts in late 1989. Of special note is the title track of Eddie Murphy's 1985 album, 'How Could It Be', redone as the socially conscious 'How Can It Be'. Â· Finally available again on LP, this hidden gem is a reminder of the greatness of one of R&B and Soul's finest singers, songwriters and performers.
