Perhaps some of LPs are overrated but he is not. In fact, we underrate the fantastically exciting and vital sounding pre-Talking Book/Innervisions era. An absolute glut of great music for 15 odd years.

The Looking Back 3 LP comp is fuckin' awesome, to my knoledge there is nothing like that released on CD and it's a shame. Then the run from Music Of My MInd to Hotter Than July is as good as it gets. The man could write a tune.

Yes I'd agree with this. You have to slightly cherry pick the albums to a certain degree but the sheer musicality is there from the start. In the Rolling Stone/Matt W canon he comes very high at the expense of others who were as talented ( Curtis Mayfield, Donny Hathaway, Gil Scott Heron) but you can't blame him for that.
