 Very strong record, although I'd personally choose Just As I am as Withers' best. Love the funk on the tracks you mentioned - Kissing My Love is my favorite. I've long thought Lean on Me was a blemish on Withers' otherwise stellar discography, but maybe because I've heard too many homeless people whining off-key versions in the NYC subways. I never understood why Withers isn't remembered in the same vein as '70's era soul greats like Al Green et. al.
