iTunes Editors’ Notes

In the '70s, everyone released live albums. Many acts released double live albums, but Hall & Oates had yet to achieve that kind of success. (The 1980 album Voices would begin their ascent to that stratosphere.) In 1978, this seven-track live album would suffice. The hit “Rich Girl” results in a spirited performance, but one that also points out that the beauty of Hall & Oates was often best captured in the studio, where the subtleties of the arrangements could be better heard and savored. “Sara Smile” provides a platform for an extended vamp where the duo and their road band sound like they’ve given thought to becoming a hard rock answer to Van Morrison. “Do What You Want, Be What You Are” and “I’m Just a Kid (Don’t Make Me Feel Like a Man)” are the songs best suited for the live setting, in terms of giving the band what they want. The version here of “Abandoned Luncheonette” sounds like Hall & Oates themselves getting what they want.

Customer Reviews

An Abandoned Album Back in Print

Daryl and John never cared for this album, RCA released it to make up for the failure of Beauty on a Back Street, but it's a great album anyway. The live version of Abandoned Luncheonette is worth the price of the entire CD. If nothing else, download track 6.

words just can't describe it!!

i have waited and hunted for this album for 3 decades! to have i-tunes carry it out of the blue?!? next to the liberty concert... the best live performance by Hall and Oates, period!

Nice Find

Realized I didn't have any Hall and Oates on my iphone. Found this gem here. I used to listen to this album all the time, but haven't listened for a long time since it's on vinyl and I don't have anything to play it on anymore. I saw Hall and Oates in concert back when they first became popular (and several more times) and this is an awesome album. These guys are great in concert, and this album is a nice reminder of their underappreciated talent.
