Remastered and sourced from the original tapes. The Poet II followed in 1984 and became another big R&B chart success, featuring no fewer than three duets with Patti LaBelle including the Top 3 soul smash “Love Has Finally Come At Last.” Guests on the album included master guitarist and smooth soul star George Benson, who had recorded his breakthrough instrumental version of Womack’s “Breezin’” in the mid-1970s. Other key tracks included “Tell Me Why” and “It Takes a Lot of Strength to Say Goodbye,” on a set co-produced by Womack, James Gadson, and former Rolling Stones co-manager and stylemaker Andrew Oldham.
