All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
Lovers of classic Philly soul had reason to celebrate in 2006, when Collectables Records reissued Blue Magic's first three studio albums (Blue Magic, The Magic of the Blue, and 13 Blue Magic Lane) and this live recording on CD. Recorded in 1975 at Cherry Hill, NJ's Latin Casino, this two-CD set (originally a double LP) finds Blue Magic sharing the bill with two other '70s soulsters: Major Harris (an ex-member of the Delfonics and cousin of the late producer Norman Harris) and Margie Joseph (who is the only non-Philadelphian on the bill). Blue Magic soar on inspired performances of their hits "Sideshow," "What's Come Over Me" (a duet with the talented if underrated ...

Lovers of classic Philly soul had reason to celebrate in 2006, when Collectables Records reissued Blue Magic's first three studio albums (Blue Magic, The Magic of the Blue, and 13 Blue Magic Lane) and this live recording on CD. Recorded in 1975 at Cherry Hill, NJ's Latin Casino, this two-CD set (originally a double LP) finds Blue Magic sharing the bill with two other '70s soulsters: Major Harris (an ex-member of the Delfonics and cousin of the late producer Norman Harris) and Margie Joseph (who is the only non-Philadelphian on the bill). Blue Magic soar on inspired performances of their hits "Sideshow," "What's Come Over Me" (a duet with the talented if underrated Joseph), "We're on the Right Track Now," and "Stop to Start," and Harris doesn't let listeners down on the congenial "Loving You Is Mellow" or his sexy 1975 smash "Love Won't Let Me Wait" (which was covered by the late Luther Vandross in 1989). Regrettably, Harris was a one-hit wonder as a solo artist; "Love Won't Let Me Wait" was his only major solo hit, but his contributions to Live leave no doubt that he was a skillful provider of Philly soul. Joseph, meanwhile, is quite enjoyable when she gives Paul McCartney's "My Love" the Northern soul treatment, although her performance of Morris Albert's "Feelings" is undeniably the low point of this album. Joseph tries to inject some soul into Albert's insipid, mushy ballad, but it doesn't work; Joseph, for all her talent, cannot salvage one of the most insufferable easy listening songs of the '70s. But the presence of "Feelings" should not discourage anyone from acquiring this generally rewarding, if mildly uneven, release. All things considered, Collectables did R&B fans an enormous favor by reissuing Live on CD.
