Whenever I pass by the Apollo,my mind goes back and recalls this recording and as the liner notes make clear this CD released in 1963 is a tidal wave of raw emotion that sold millions without a hit single, JB's 1st hit album and was voted internationally by critics as one of the Top 20 albums of all time..with reason.
This CD is the meat and potatoes of JB, a representation of his live show that brought him into the spotlight on this cold night with a hot band.
All his accolades, The Hardest Working Man In Show Business, Godfather Of Soul,Soul Brother # 1 are all here on this 30 minute live CD.
The CD itself was remastered in 1990, prepared from the original,undubbed stereo master tape.
or is "Live at The Apollo Vol.2" the better Live choice?
