about

Despite what the title implies—and what the cover photo tends to reinforce—this 1967 release is not a live album and was not recorded at a hotel. It's a solid studio session by the Mighty One and contains one of his most enduring songs, "No Money, No Love." Sparrow re-recorded that title and "Sandra" with Byron Lee in 1969, but the remaining eight titles appear only on this album.

All releases digitally restored from best available sources. ... more
