Bill Withers - 'Grandma's Hands'

If there's one thing I'm certain of in this world it's this, Bill Withers sure can sing. Flicking through the TV channels on Saturday night, I stumbled across a BBC4 program called 'Bill Withers - In Concert', filmed for the BBC in 1974. I was just in time to hear him singing 'Grandma's hands' and to put it simply, his performance is nothing short of perfect. His voice is soothing and his talent effortless. What I would have given to have been in that audience.

You can see the full 'In Concert' on the BBC iplayer here. For those of you who are not in the UK, here's a clip of that performance of 'Grandma's Hands'. He starts singing at about 1 min 20 but his intro explaining the song is well worth a listen.

You can also watch the really lovely documentary about Bill Withers' life called 'Still Bill' here (that's another iplayer link, sorry non UK people).
