He should have his own thread, damn it. A true legend.
Listened to Live at Carnegie Hall today and it's one of the most vital, essential live albums I've ever heard. In particular, it's one of the all-time great percussion albums with the legendary James Gadson on drums AND Bobbye Hall on percussion. It's just as funky as his studio albums but much looser. Loved it.
What’s generally considered his best album? I’ve never really listened outside of the hits but I love the hits.
Still Bill is one of the greatest soul albums of all time, imo.
Live at Carnegie Hall is serious hot shit. James Gadson and Bobbye Hall on drums and percussion is something really special. Just SO much groove.
And while he's (rightfully) pegged as a little introverted sometimes, Bill goes all in on audience involvement. He was a real-deal soul frontman.
I'm not a fan of live albums, but i'll definitely be giving that a shot.
yeah he’s one of the greats. his general disdain for the industry is pretty admirable, as well
