Golden Hits Live

LP (Item 29651) Mercury, 1968 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 11

The wonderful thing about this one is that the album allows you to hear how great Jerry could be in any setting – even without the fabulous studio work that graced most of his classic hits. Jerry emerges here as a masterful entertainer, with a rich command of both his talents, and the audience in front of him. No schmaltz, though – and the record features nice versions of "Moon River", "He Will Break Your Heart", "Amen", "For Your Precious Love", and "I Stand Accused" – most clearly recorded live so that Mercury would at least have versions of them in the catalog to compete with the Vee Jay recordings.

Ice N Hot
Fountain, 1982. Near Mint-
If you grew up in Chitown, like we did, you'll know that Jerry Butler never got old – and through the years he continued to make some pretty darn great music, even when he was falling far from the limelight in the rest of the country! This album's a great little early 80s effort that steps ... LP, Vinyl record album

Motown, 1977. Very Good+
A great little concept album – and one that really shows the continuing sophistication and growth of Jerry Butler's music in the 70s! The record is dedicated to the "single girl" of the 70s (portrayed with the sad little photo of a brown bag lunch and a Gucci purse on the cover) ... LP, Vinyl record album

Souled Out
Up Front, Early 60s/Early 70s. Very Good-
A collection of work that Jerry cut for Vee Jay – issued on the Up Front label with a cover that's a bit trippy, but a sound that's pure early Jerry. We love this stuff, and we can never get enough of Butler's early "Iceman" recordings – records that would have a profound ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1970. Very Good+
Seminal work by one of our favorite soul singers of all time! Jerry first came to fame with The Impressions and on his own in the early 60s – singing dark moody easy tunes that well earned him the nickname of "Iceman". In the late 60s, though, he moved onto Mercury where he broke ... LP, Vinyl record album

You & Me
Mercury, 1970. Very Good Gatefold
A great little album by Jerry – recorded during a period where he was using his fame (and cash!) to showcase younger talents in soul music. In this case, the younger talents include Terry Callier – who contributed two songs to this album, including his semi-hit "Ordinary Joe" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Message To The People
Mercury, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold
A classic bit of tripped-out soul from Buddy Miles – put together with a lot of nice psychedelic production, and an overall sound that stays nice and deep on the bottom end of things – and lets Buddy rock out heavily on rootsy vocals. There's no real standout funky numbers, but the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold
A super tripped-out blend of rock, funk, and soul – easily one of Buddy Miles' most mindblowing albums – and a classic that never lets up at all! Buddy's leading the whole group on drums – really kicking things large from behind the kit – while the rest of the group jams in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Polydor, 1975. Very Good-
One of James Brown's last great funky records! The record's got a number of nice cuts – like the stone cold funky cuts "Your Love", which has a great break at the beginning, and "Superbad, Superslick". There's a few duds, like the remake of "Papa's Got a Brand New ... LP, Vinyl record album

De-Lite, 1980. Near Mint-
After having a pretty big bit of success with The Lovelites in the early 70s, producer Clarence Thomas put together the group Coffee as sort of a club/disco update of the harmony girl sound that he made famous back in the early days. This album's one of the few that the group ever made – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
