Back once more / with the Funky Four Plus One More / "That's The Joint" - wind that back etc etc. We're getting soulful this week with Maze's classic live double album "Live in LA" and this is one you can play aaallll the way through. Plus the fourth side is in fact all new material (at the time) recorded in the studio and includes the smasheroo Before I Let Go - check it here:
There are lots of clips on youtube that will confirm the fact that Maze live are the shizzle; I saw them myself last year at Hammersmith and they rocked it. This album confused me for many years: I was searching for the studio version of this very track but assumed that the one on here was live. I looked and looked and I had it all the time! Durr.
Anyway it could be yours plus an Impotent Fury limited edition 7", mailed to your door at my expense if you answer this question most aptly and amusingly: which live venue should I choose for my "comeback"? Don't forget the hashtag #fredsfreerecords. Winner will be announced on THURSDAY not Friday (I'm going away on Friday cos it's my birthday - dunno where - missus has organised surprise trip - quite excited! - but no guarantee of wi-fi hence early deadline.)
All suggestions gratefully received - my career in your hands once more! Now, back to those origami giraffes...
