In 1973, a subsequent self-titled comeback album featuring the acclaimed tracks “I Believe the Whole Damn World is Going Crazy” and “I See Hope”, among others, was mired in distribution troubles that ultimately led to the involuntary bankruptcy of Stax, one of the world’s greatest record labels.


The padlocking of its doors separated Mr. Williams from other recordings he made, which remain unreleased to this day. And, as it did for all too many incredible soul artists, Stax’s demise also meant the end of Mr. Williams’ career as an entertainer. Since its closure, he has largely lived a life out of the spotlight.
