Product Description:

Personnel: Otis Clay (vocals); Mabon "Teenie" Hodges (guitar); Henri "Hank" Ford (tenor saxophone, background vocals); Paul Howard (trumpet, background vocals); Bill McFarland (trombone, background vocals); Charles Hodges (organ); Dedrick Blanchard (keyboards); Leroy Hodges (bass); Howard Grimes (drums).
Recorded live at Yubin Chokin Hall, Tokyo, Japan on October 22, 1983. Includes liner notes by Robert Pruter.
All of Otis Clay's albums are worth hearing, but this one--a 1983 concert recorded in Tokyo--is not only his masterpiece but one of the best live soul albums since the mid '60s heyday of the Stax/Volt Revue. Backed by an incredible band (mostly the guys who played on Al Green's hits), Clay roars through a set that includes a couple of Green tunes that he thoroughly makes his own. He also quotes Sam Cooke to fine effect on the gospel-ish "Precious Precious," and nearly convinces the audience that he's the second coming of Otis Redding. This is an essential album for any soul music collection.
