BEST in SHOW

Think of BEST in SHOW as a kibble-sized version of radioUNLEASHED. Each week, we’ll search the kennel high and low and select one sonic purebred to highlight here. It might be a yummy new tune, an under-appreciated old bone or an old dog’s guilty pleasure.

Bill Withers – Harlem/Cold Baloney Live at Carnegie Hall

Known as one of the best concert recordings from the 1970s, it capitalizes on Withers’ trademark melancholy soul sound while expanding the music to fit the room granted by a live show.
