AllMusic Review by

Universal's 2013 collection Icon is a concise, excellent sampler of Bobby Womack's funky early-'70s prime, containing such soul classics as "Woman's Gotta Have It," "Across 110th Street," "Lookin' for a Love," "Nobody Wants You When You're Down and Out," "Harry Hippie," and "That's the Way I Feel About Cha." Certainly, Womack made full albums that are worth exploring and there are other compilations that dig deeper, but this has the basics at an affordable price and definitely will whet the appetite.
