Released in 1976, "Naked & Warm" is the fifth studio album by American R&B singer Bill Withers and his second for Columbia Records. Warm wonderful soul from Bill – recorded with a bit less of the acoustic folksy sound that graced his Sussex recordings, but still with loads of excellent song writing, and a whole bunch of great piano work in place of the missing guitar.

Classic Bill‘s second album for Columbia was a somewhat funkier affair than his debut. "Here Withers returns to the simple ways of his past, working five or six musicians for the kind of hard groove that doesn't have many parallels in black music these days." (Robert Christgau). Musicians include Larry "Fatback" Tolbert on drums, Dorothy Ashby (harp), Melvin Dunlap (bass) Benorce Blackmon (guitar) and Jerry Knight (bass).
