Legendary soul man Lenny Williams has released a new single, “You’ve Been Good To Me,” that has us nostalgic for red light basement parties and slow dragging with someone special. With the requisite strings, horns and silky smooth harmonies, this master class on how to hold on to a good woman has a classic ’70s vibe.
Williams partnered with producer Levi Seacer, Jr., founding member of Prince’s band the New Power Generation, to write “You’ve Been Good To Me.” He brought former Tower of Power bandmate Greg Adams aboard to add horns and strings to round out its throwback soul sound.
The arrangement seductively sets the mood for Lenny’s cautionary tale about taking your woman for granted and carelessly overlooking the little things. Williams sings, “I don’t want to be that kind of man, so take my hand / I want to show you how much you mean to me, my love.” He goes on to fervently sing his lady’s praises. He croons about how she holds him down and boasts to the world about how she understands him, supports him and even has hot meals on his plate even when he comes home a little late.
Married more than 35 years, Lenny Williams is no fool when it comes to love. From “Cause I Love You” to “You’ve Been Good To Me,” Lenny stays sharing timeless wisdom on how to love and keep a good woman. Take notes from the OG when you listen to his latest right here.
