Commodores Live came out in 1977 as a 2 record set hot off the heels of their outstanding self titled album. One of the truly outstanding live R and B albums of all time. The guys recorded this at the height of their beginning as a supergroup. All of the early classics are here. You will feel as if you are right there back in Atlanta in 1977. The guys are having a lot of fun and it is evident in their live show which has always been a staple of the Commodores. The six-man original Commodores were a powerful and self-contained unit that could effortlessly alternate between turning over mean and serious funk jams or a slow, sexy power ballad. By the time the band plays the 10 minute plus Brick House it is quite obvious the band has reached funkified critical mass. In my opinion the Commodores were at the top of their game with this recording. Soon after this album the group caught the dreaded balladitis disease and there was less and less funk. Transferred from original vinyl.

My only goal is to share my love/hate relationship with music and to expose people to music they may be unfamiliar with. If you are the creator or copyright owner of a song or anything else that might be posted here, please CONTACT ME by sending an e-mail to homercat at shaw dot ca if you wish to have it removed. I don't know why someone would want me to quit promoting their music for free and therefore putting money in their pockets by getting people to buy their stuff, but I will quit if you e mail me.
Most importantly, if you like an artist you hear here , you should definitely do your best to take the knowledge you gain here and go out and BUY THEIR ALBUMS to help support the artist.
