The packaging of this live release is a bit shoddy, with bassist Steve LaSpina's name listed as "Lespina" and keyboardist Dave Mackay's being listed as "Malachai." Singer Bill Henderson
is in generally strong voice on 11 songs (including "Tulips or Turnips" which is mistakenly listed as "What Am I to You"), although his dialogue between tunes should have been cut out. Henderson
is accompanied by pianist Joyce Collins
(who sings on three songs), Mackay
and drummer Jerry Coleman
; highlights include "You Better Love Me," "Sweet Georgia Brown," "I Can't Give You Anything but Love" and a surprisingly effective "Royal Garden Blues." The listed date is an estimate, since none is given on the release. This is the band that Henderson
used around the period to record similar material for Discovery...
