Is this the greatest live album ever? Forget the names of better-known ones you may be thinking of, because this, folks, may just be it!! This is a powerful audio document of a communion between an American giant and his audience, on this occasion located in the Village's funky Bitter End club on a freezing January '71 night. The "gentle giant" and his lean, mean band (guitars, congas, bass, drums. PERIOD) work their way through his incomparable repertoire of timeless Impressions classics and groundbreaking solo material. The set includes several searing and typically thought-provoking new Curtis songs that only appear on this album. The recording is priceless for its capture of a low-key atmosphere in which people are seated at tables close together, sipping drinks and paying rapt attention as a master goes to work. Curtis works that crowd like a kind of wise street minister, his witty asides keeping everybody loose while they absorb the very real message in his music ("We've Only Just Begun," of all songs, has NEVER EVER sounded powerful, meaningful and resonant like it does here!). There have been many classic live albums, but this one is truly in a class by itself. It predates "Superfly" by a year, so don't expect to hear "Pusherman" for the umpteenth time. Curtis Mayfield's contributions to American music are too many to detail here, so I won't even try to.

This product was added to our catalog on Sunday 29 July, 2012.
