Bill Withers - Live at Carnegie Hall 1972
The troubadour of melancholy soul at his creative peak relates to the large Carnegie Hall audience as if he was in a small club. His introductions are just as poignant as the songs, as he moves from sadness to celebration. Allmusic Guide called this one of the great live albums of the 70s. (Columbia)
