    I have wanted to get all of the Bill Withers albums on CD since CDs came out. There are at least 5 compilations on the market right now but none of his original albums except for "Live at Carnegie Hall." I want all the albums, especially the early Sussex ones.

    It drives me crazy that you hear "Lean On Me" all the time on TV, radio and movies but you can't purchase the original album that it was on (Still Bill).

    If I am wrong about this, please tell me and I will be happy to pay for import versions if they are available.

    Hell no, you're not. Bill Withers is the shit-- though the overplayed "Lean On Me" is one of my least-favorite songs of his. I just saw one of his best-of CDs at Rhino Records in LA tonight. I can't believe the original records aren't available-- a crime!
