Credit goes to his easygoing style and relatable lyrics, not to mention a tight-as-a-vice band that on this night is simply "on.

This classic, as well as the instantly familiar "Ain't No Sunshine," poignant "Grandma's Hands," and all-time favorite "Lean On Me" are delivered with utmost soulfulness, passion, and electricity. Soothing with subtlety, charming with calmness, and healing with a vocal timbre as relaxing as his grooves, Withers uses the stage to expand the range of favorites and engage in dialog with the crowd.

Characteristics ranging from the tension of the guitars, funky bends of the bass, whisper-soft coo of the formal strings, airiness of the backing harmonies, and sharpness of the snare drum emerge with utmost clarity and lifelike presence.

You are as much a participant as listener. No small claims, but the proof is in the grooves. The songs here span soul, blues, and folk and often times, contain elements of all three styles. Live at Carnegie Hall also deals with serious subject matter with unflinching honesty and simple directness. Few, if any, live albums demonstrate such a bond between the crowd and artist as Live at Carnegie Hall. Mobile Fidelity makes it happen.

Like Liked by 1 person. Withers and Green are sort of different types of artists I think — Withers is stripped back and often acoustic and often going for authenticity, while Green is smooth and gorgeous. Both awesome, but feels a little bit apples and oranges.
