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.

Philadelphia International, 1980. Near Mint-
One of the most compelling later albums on Philly International – a killer mix of jazzy numbers that have a very different style than most of the other Philly work at the time! Even though Leon Huff had been banging around in soul music for about 15 years – most famously as half of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
