Wikipedia : This day (March 4, 1944), in Cleveland, Ohio, is born Robert Dwayne ‘Bobby’ Womack, an American singer-songwriter and musician and an active recording artist since the early 1960s.
Bobby Womack : The Womack brothers – Bobby and his siblings Cecil, Curtis, Harris and Friendly, Jr. – cut two R&B classics as the Valentinos: “Looking for a Love” (later covered by the J. Geils Band) and “It’s All Over Now.” The Rolling Stones’ cover of the latter song beat the Valentinos’ own version onto the charts, giving the Stones their second Top Forty hit in the States. Bobby Womack also played guitar in Cooke’s band. In the wake of Cooke’s shooting death under mysterious circumstances, the Valentinos broke up and Womack turned to songwriting, guitar playing and a solo career. He has written songs recorded by Wilson Pickett (“I’m a Midnight Mover”), George Benson (“Breezin’”),Janis Joplin (“Trust Me”) and others. Pickett alone recorded 17 of Womack’s compositions. A solid guitarist who worked on the Memphis session scene for a period in the Sixties, Womack played on sessions for Pickett, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Joe Tex, King Curtis, Dusty Springfield and other soul and R&B artists. He cut an album with jazz guitarist Gabor Szabo, too.
Bobby Womack @Soulwalking : When Bobby was 10 years old, he and his brothers (under the name of Curtis Womack and the Womack Brothers) recorded a single on the Pennant imprint in 1954, entitled ‘Buffalo Bill’ b/w ‘Bible Tells Me So’.
Bobby Womack @last.fm : Taking after their father, who sang gospel music, Bobby Womack and his brothers formed their own group. Sam Cooke took an interest in the Womack Brothers, and they recorded for Cooke’s SAR record label in the early 1960s. Renamed the Valentinos, and encouraged by Cooke to go in a more secular and commercial direction, they scored a hit with Womack’s “It’s All Over Now” in 1964; the Rolling Stones’ version of the song became a major hit, earning Womack generous royalty payments.
