Two unsung heroes of modern soul music are captured here live in performance. Both together and individually, they had a major hand in the R&B music sound of the 1960's and beyond, having written songs like "Do Right Woman" for Aretha Franklin and "Cry Like a Baby" for the Box Tops. This intimate set includes those two as well as "I'm Your Puppet", "Dark End of the Street" and many more.

This live album is played on two instruments, so it's mellow. For more fleshed-out versions, buy "Do Right Man." Both are great--especially for dinner parties and good-vibe evenings at home.

However sadly great songwriters do not necessarily great performers make. This CD recorded across a 1998 UK tour in various intimate small venues is certainly laid back as many have commented. With a very simple keyboards by Spooner Oldham and guitar and vocals by Dan Penn set up, a selection of their key hits is performed impeccably. However when compared with the more emotional and soulful originals one is left feeling by the end of 14 tracks, it is all sounds very samey - truly enjoyable and easy on the ear but not outstandingly memorable.
For completists definitely but if you are new to the songs I would suggest the recent Ace release of Penn & Oldham songs by other artists who had the original hits is the better choice.
I can't believe part of this album was recorded in a little village hall in South Petherton, Somerset - obviously UK's answer to Alabama!
