Combo of “live “ and live : Ohio studio and Georgia stage . Disc one much better - his vocal dynamics are unbelievable on every track , esp “brother rapp”, something different for time and a recut of “give it up or turn it a loose “, an amazing iconic cut w a powerful back beat yet understated insistent organ - not really for the kiddies , this one is smokin ‘ hot . As is the recut of the old ballad “bewildered “ an emotional masterpiece but again adult fare .
The real live stuff is pretty badly mixed / produced . ONE good track , the greatest version of “if I ruled the world”, ever !
Still more curiously oversexed entries - send the kids to bed and pull down the blinds .
