I believe the Live tracks here were recorded over two nights at the Savoy. Side Four (now the closing 4 studio cuts) were recorded in early 1983 with one of the four being the awesome "Ain't Nobody" heard here in its original superior form.
After the release of this LP by Rufus, the band featuring Chaka Khan on lead vocals went their separate ways with Chaka going on to record a string of solo hits.
The rest they say is history but Rufus were very very good as this live LP confirms. They were a product of the 70s soul scene and left the scene in 1983 at the very top of their game. What we have are wonderful memories that have stood the test of time without doubt.
May I recommend other LPs such as "Rufusised" and the rare "Street Player" which contains the outstanding studio version of Stay.
In truth I'd forgotten just how good Rufus was as a functioning live band and just how complete this release is. What an utter barnstormer – whether they're slap-bassing the Hell out of Soulful tunes or just harmonizing on those gorgeous and sexy ballads – Rufus was a formidable machine on stage with two hugely talented voices out front – Chaka Khan and Tony Maiden. These guys were tight - almost uncannily so. And now with superlative new Audio and Presentation – once again England's Big Break Records (BBR are part of the much respected Cherry Red) have stepped up to the Reissue/Remaster plate and stumped up a classy CD that will have fans dancing in the aisles (the whole double album is fitted onto one disc). Here are the sweet things...
UK released August 2015 (September 2015 in the USA) – "Live: Stompin' At The Savoy" by RUFUS and CHAKA KHAN on Big Break Records WCDBBRX 0313 (Barcode 5013929061330) offers fans the full double-album onto 1CD (no bonus tracks) and plays out as follows (77:59 minutes):
