- A trip back in time....

My older sister had this album when I was a kid. The Commodores were LARGE back then, I mean, everything they touched turned to gold. I am so glad this is on CD for me to own. This is one of the most enjoyable live CDs that I own, just all around fun to listen to. These guys knew how to rock a party, and on a dime, slow it down to make it romantic and mellow.

The CD kicks off with a fantastic high-energy version of "Won't You Come Dance With Me", and that sets the tone for everything you hear afterwards. You can hear and feel the excitement the Commodores were giving out, and the love the crowd was giving right back to them. I especially loved the live versions of the funk/jazz groove of "Funny Feelings" and the hit "Just To Be Close To You" the end Lionel Richie and Clyde Orange do some gorgeous doo-wop harmony! It has to be heard to be believed, their voices sound so good together!

Other standouts are "Fancy Dancer" (which breaks into a hot dancehall beat at midpoint!), "Sweet Love" (another harmonic masterpiece - look out, Temptations! Clyde hits a high falsetto note that reaches to the rafters - whoa!), "Zoom" and "Easy". I loved how the guys go from "I Feel Sanctified" into a bangin' ten minute version of "Brick House"...and they have the "Brick House" contest, another high point of the recording. I found myself laughing along with the guys! I loved the friendly stage rivalry between Lionel and Clyde...hey yall, you REALLY need to reunite and show every just WHY yall got the name "The Funkiest Band In The Land"! You have so many fans out here who would love for that to happen. Just like Lionel said on this live version of "Sweet Love"...yall reached your goals TOGETHER...which is where yall need to be now...BACK TOGETHER!

I highly recommend this CD to anyone who likes live concert recordings. You'll feel like you were back in 1977 and partying along with the crowd, I know I did! A must have.

- Oh Yeah! Come Inside!

Reviewer: soulsista38 from GALLOWAY, NJ United States

This is a terrific Live CD. If you are a huge fan of that whole 70's live concert thing...I say jump on this CD. Since not many R&B/Funk Bands made recordings of their live concerts in the 70's, this is a good way to revisit those days. There are only a few live albums i.e., EWF(Gratitude)and AWB(Person to Person) from that period, but most of those dynamite performances from all those great 70's bands were never recorded! Imagine that! I was so glad when this was finally released on CD..I had been waiting for sometime. The Commodores will take you back! When they perform is epic! Invest in your past, for your future, or invest in the present for the future and past! Take my word for it! This is a stellar CD

- "To all the Brick Houses (in Atlanta Ga)" Everywhere

This is such a great live set!

I remember back in the day I would be playing the Wild Cherry version of "I feel sanctified" do a seamless mix into the live Commodores version on this album, let it ride into the next song "Brick House" and mix that seamlessly into the studio version of Brick House. It was some of my best work of the day! Kids screaming and dancing and having the time of our lives. It's all good! (Just Like this CD)

I had this when it came out in a double album in 1979. No doubt, one of the best live albums ever produced, rivaled by only EWF's "Gratitude". So you know, this album is where "Too Hot To Trot" was first featured (a hard song to get for those who really enjoy the Commodores).
