I do not know what to say or do Bill Withers was a giant of soul and touching your heart . His songs will live on and it is so sad that he was not able to perform or sing in his later years.
Grandma's Hands is for me the most sublime two minutes of any recording if you listen with both your heart and your head you can see and feel , family , love and history . This song makes me cry every and I do mean every time I play it . I know it will now make me cry even more . Goodbye Bill you will be missed .
It is a sublime track Andrew. Sampled many a time too.

Gutted, Bill was my gateway to soul, funk and r&b. Music I may never have explored and loved without him.
Rest in peace Bill.
That drummer is one hell of a player.

Indeed. When you hear Grandma's Hands you're left in no doubt that it came from experience. Surely the definition of soul music.
