Raw Velvet is the second solo album by American songwriter and musician Bobby Whitlock, released in 1972. The appearance of Eric Clapton, Carl Radle and Jim Gordon of Derek and the Dominos was only indicated by the representation of 'dominoes' on the original inner sleeve. Review by Steve Kurutz

Known more for his associations with other blues-rockers, namely Eric Clapton and Delaney Bramlett, Bobby Whitlock was a talented songwriter in his own right, but this second LP loses the focus that his debut release had. To be quite honest, while not offensive or poorly arranged, most of the songs are rather uninspired, midtempo Southern rockers that sound all too much like Allman Brothers outtakes.Jimmy Miller's classic early-'70s production work is a joy to hear for aspiring roots rockers, and theWhitlock-penned ballad "You Came Along" is a sweet love song on par with his best work in the Dominos. Also of note is the ridiculous cover art which shows a seemingly stoned Whitlock dressed head to toe in velvet and looking regal inside the halls of an English manor. Clearly the stuff time capsules are made of.

This place is great! Found a lot of what I was looking for, prices were very fair so I was able to pick up a lot more records. The employee there, Dustin was very kind and helped me find some stuff and try out one of the records I was on the fence about. Definitely recommend dropping by!
