    Live At The Apollo

    Ranked 24/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Live At The Apollo left no doubt in anyone's mind that James Brown was a live, dynamic performer without peers and that his talent could come across just as strongly on tape as in person. It was a watershed album, both for the 'hardest working man in show business' and for the burgeoning soul music movement. Reissued here on Vinyl LP by Universal Records.

    Live At Carnegie Hall

    Stupendous 1973 Concert Set Ranks Alongside James Brown's Live At The Apollo And B.B. King's Live At The Regal


    Easygoing Portrait Of Down-home Soul Singer Coming Into His Own And Establishing An Indelible Bond Between Performer And Audience


    Mastered From The Original Master Tapes: Mobile Fidelity Takes You Inside The Famed Venue And Lets You Be A Part Of The Event


    On par with the most treasured concert albums of the 60s and 70s, Bill Withers' transformative Live at Carnegie Hall< is a forgotten classic--an easygoing portrait of a down-home soul artist coming into his own in front of an audience eager to share every moment of his brilliance. Soothing with subtlety, charming with calmness, and healing with a vocal timbre as relaxing as his grooves, Withers uses the stage to expand the range of favorites and engage in dialog with the crowd. Distinguished with sonics that restore the performances' balance and improve the soundstaging, this reissue takes you inside the venue.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180g 2LP at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's 180g 2LP set of this extraordinary 1973 record provides a transparent view of Withers' relaxing timbre and the subtle grooves underlining his arrangements. Characteristics ranging from the tension of the guitars, funky bends of the bass, whisper-soft coo of the formal strings, airiness of the backing harmonies, and sharpness of the snare drum emerge with utmost clarity and lifelike presence.


    Moreover, aspects that really make this concert document unique--the energetic crowd, Withers and his band's willingness to extend arrangements, and the undeniable communicative bond between the performer and his fans--are brought into fuller relief. While most live albums give you the sense of what transpired, Mobile Fidelity's reissue allows it to seem that what you're hearing and sensing is happening right now, in the moment. You are as much a participant as listener. For this reason and more, Live at Carnegie Hall ranks with James Brown's Live at the Apollo and B.B. King's Live at the Regal. No small claims, but the proof is in the grooves.


    The antithesis of the sweaty R&B shouter that prowls the edge of stages, Withers deals in mellowness and vulnerability, qualities that come to fore. The songs here span soul, blues, and folk and often times, contain elements of all three styles. Live at Carnegie Hall also deals with serious subject matter with unflinching honesty and simple directness. Companionship, poverty, war, maturity, family, and love all crop up within Withers' tunes, yet the messages are never overly cumbersome or preachy. Credit goes to his easygoing style and relatable lyrics, not to mention a tight-as-a-vice band that on this night is simply on.


    One more time? Withers asks in response to a request for another stanza during Use Me, and like the snap of fingers, his musicians are right back on cue, the crowd clapping along on every beat. This classic, as well as the instantly familiar Ain't No Sunshine, poignant Grandma's Hands, and all-time favorite Lean On Me are delivered with utmost soulfulness, passion, and electricity. Few, if any, live albums demonstrate such a bond between the crowd and artist as Live at Carnegie Hall. You'll definitely want to be there. Mobile Fidelity makes it happen.

    Live At Shea Stadium

    Recorded at New Yorks Shea Stadium in 1982, Live at Shea Stadium captures The Clash at the peak of its powers and on devastating form. Bristling with energy and attitude, Live at Shea Stadium is destined to feature alongside James Brown at the Apollo, The Who at Leeds and Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison as one of the greatest live recordings of all time!


    The Clash, opening for The Who on their farewell U.S. tour played two nights at the legendary Shea Stadium (12th & 13th Oct 1982). They had recently released the Combat Rock album, and the singles Rock The Casbah and Should I Stay Or Should I Go were enjoying mass audiences via MTV and radio airplay. Despite being the support act, the New York Post reported there were as many Clash fans on those nights as Who fans.


    Recorded by Glyn Johns, the album features the second nights performance in its entirety and shows the band at a fascinating and pivotal point in their career. They had risen from punk agitators to arena superstars and would break up less than a year later. One of the few remaining unreleased Clash treasures, the recordings have long been sought after by fans and were unearthed by the late Joe Strummer while packing for a move. This is a legendary Clash concert. More than an album, its an event.
