Willie Mitchell Live

LP (Item 23825) Hi Records, 1977 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 11

What a strange one! The title says "Willie Mitchell Live", but then the back says "All tracks previously released on Hi Records." Clearly, the Memphis bunch are knob-twiddling here, and adding fake applause to some of Willie's better instrumental moments from the old days. The good thing is that because the tracks are older, the record sounds better than it might have if it was a live session from the mid 70s. Titles include "Smokie Part II", "Boot Leg", "Bum Daddy", "20 - 75", "Pin Head", and of course, "Soul Serenade". (Cover has a cutout notch.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

King, 1970. Very Good-
Further genius from James Brown at the start of the 70s – a record that's starting to show some of the more open-ended grooves he'd explore with the JBs on their own albums – longer, stretched-out tracks that are way more than simple funk and soul! There's a sense of freewheeling ... LP, Vinyl record album
