Double 180 gram vinyl LP pressing in gatefold sleeve includes two bonus tracks. Curtis/Live! Is Curtis Mayfield's first live album after leaving the Impressions. Originally released in 1971 as a double LP on Mayfield's Curtom label, the album's 16 tracks along with Mayfield's interstitial raps on the politics of the day were recorded at Paul Colby's 230 seats Bitter End nightclub in New York City. Mayfield and his band's first set at a Bitter End date in January 1971 comprised the bulk of the music presented here. Mixed primarily with Eddie Kramer at Electric Lady Studios, the album features Henry Gibson playing percussion, Craig McMullen on rhythm guitar, Joseph 'Lucky' Scott on bass, and Tyrone McCullen on drums. Many critics feel Live! Is a powerful demonstration of Mayfield's pre-Superfly accomplishment, and some even said it's one of the greatest concert albums ever cut on a soul artist, and one of the legendary live albums of all time.
