"... his gospel-trained voice still in excellent form ... the most personal work Bell has ever created ... (puts) a spotlight on Bell's voice and storytelling skills, a signature of his since his first hit in 1961 ..."
- Chicago Tribune

"A solid and expressive performer ... a welcome return to what Bell has always done best: straightforward, deceptively simple soul music ... age becomes Bell's voice, which is still sweet and unwaveringly earnest ... it's a pleasure to once again hear his reliable romanticism arranged astride the earthy simplicity of horns, Hammond organ and unfussy guitar riffs."

Legendary soul singer and songwriter William Bell returns to his original home, Stax Records, for the appropriately titled This Is Where I Live, his first major release in almost four decades. Known for writing and performing soul standards like You Don’t Miss Your Water, Private Number and I Forgot To Be Your Lover, Bell co-wrote most of the songs on this album with Grammy winner John Leventhal, who also produced. Additional co-writers include Marc Cohn, Rosanne Cash, Cory Chisel and Scot Bomar. The performances are assured and subtle, yet simmering with tension. When Bell switches into ballad mode, as on the sweetly tender I Will Take Care Of You, written for a close friend recovering from health problems, the effect is devastating.

"At my age (76), I’ve had a lot of experience and I know what my limitations are, what my faults are as a human being and I utilize that. When I approach a lyric or a melody, I’m brutally honest."
- William Bell

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
