Still Bill is the second studio album by American soul musician Bill Withers, released in 1972 by Sussex Records. It includes two hit singles: "Lean on Me", which is number 205 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and went to number 1 on the Billboard pop and R&B charts in summer of 1972; and "Use Me", which went to number two on the same charts in fall of 1972. It was certified Gold by the RIAA.

Just As I Am is the debut studio album of American soul musician Bill Withers, released in 1971 on Sussex Records. The album features the hit single "Ain't No Sunshine", which was ranked at number 280 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Booker T. Jones produced, arranged, and played keyboards and guitar on Just As I Am, alongside bassist Donald "Duck" Dunn and drummer Al Jackson Jr. of Booker T. & the . s, with Stephen Stills on lead guitar.

His tunes were included on the quintessential compilation series such as "Super Disco Brake's Volume Two" (for "Use Me") and "Ultimate Breaks And Beats Vol. 20 (for "Kissing My Love").

Bill Withers came into his own on his third album, Still Bill. Released in 1972, the record is a remarkable summation of a number of contemporary styles: the smooth soul coming out of Philly, smoky, late-night funk via Bobby Womack, bluesy Southern soul, and '70s. It's rich, subtly layered music, but its best attribute is that it comes on easy, never sounding labored or overworked

This high level of songwriting is sustained throughout the record, making this probably his best record ever. 180 gram audiophile vinyl.

On Still Bill, his second album, Withers holds forth on all aspects of love, on its wonders; on Kissing My Love, he talks of closing his eyes and seeing a pretty city with a million flowers. He sings of being a willing partner in a bad relationship on Use Me ("If it feels this good getting used, Keep on using me ‘til you use me up"). He also knows that younger men may eagerly sniffing around his territory – Who Is He (And What Is He to You)? perfectly captures personal paranoia.
