William Bell - This Is Where I Live LP
This is Where I Live is the legendary Stax artist's first Stax album in over 40 years. It was produced and arranged by John Leventhal. "I Forgot To Be Your Lover" featuring Snoop Dogg was the focus-track in the Take Me To The River documentary project. William Bell is probably best known for 1961's "You Don't Miss Your Water" (his debut single); 1968's "Private Number" (a duet with Judy Clay, and a top 10 hit in the UK); and 1976's "Tryin' to Love Two", Bell's only US top 40 hit, which also hit No. 1 on the R&B charts. As a songwriter, Bell co-authored the Chuck Jackson hit "Any Other Way" (itself a cover, since Bell issued it first, as a follow-up to "You Don't Miss Your Water"), Billy Idol's 1986 hit "To Be a Lover" (originally a hit for Bell under it's original title "I Forgot to Be Your Lover"), and the blues classic "Born Under A Bad Sign", popularized by both Albert King and Cream.
