Donny Hathaway / Live

Among the greatest in-concert slabs ever, Live (1972) is bassist Willie Weeks’ benchmark showcase – and note that Donny, and guitarists Cornell Dupree and Phil Upchurch also turn in exemplary performances. Willie’s watershed solo on “Voices Inside (Everything is Everything)” was actually recorded at The Troubadour in Los Angeles and grafted on to Side Two which was Donny and his band as captured at The Bitter End in New York City.
