This is the most laidback live album I've ever heard. The absolute acme of understated super soulful funk. The sound is minimal with delicate percussion from the congas plus washes of rhythm guitar from Curtis. The atmosphere is intimate with cries of approval from the audience who sound close enough to touch. Nice to hear old Impressions favourites as well as newer songs from the time (1971). He even covers the Carpenters' We've Only Just Begun (actually Richard Carpenter didn't write the song, it was originally a TV commercial for a bank).
A really well recorded live album.
