It Ain't Because of Me Baby
This funky, polished 1978 R&B album hints at disco yet Withers' natural vibe and ace songs keep everything centered on pure soul (the CD bonus cut adds "Rosie" a ballad in the singer's more typical style). The effervescent "Lovely Day" only went to No. 30 on the pop charts at the time (for shame!) but today it's considered a classic and is much heard on radio, film and TV.
