William DeVaughn - Be Thankful For What You Got (1974)

William DeVaughn was a draftsman with the government when he cut this album. The title track, recorded with members of MFSB, sold nearly 2 million copies and went to #1 on the US R&B charts. Two other singles, "Blood Is Thicker Than Water" and "Give The Little Man A Great Big Hand" also sold relatively well. Much of the rest of the album has a strong religious bent (DeVaughn was also a Jehovah's Witness). This album is available on CD, but with a rather ugly cover. This is the original.
