George Benson, In Concert – Carnegie Hall (1975)
Hubert Laws is a guest of George Benson for this album. I bought this for a dollar (or two) and used to listen to it heaps over one summer in particular. I was working in a book store and I’d buy a crate – I’d drink a beer each night and then I’d have six-eight left for Friday night (sometimes I’d drink more than one bottle from the crate in a night). I’d sit on my bed and nod off, sometimes a cigarette falling to my chest, burning a hole in my t-shirt, is what would wake me. The turntable spinning around, and one side of this record due for flipping. I wrote a short-story about the same time – called Deceiving April (I was young and silly – but click on that link and laugh away, by all means). I quoted details of this album in the story. Not interesting at all. And probably the most interesting thing about the story. I’m not the character that falls asleep listening to this album in the story, by the way. But if you want me to be then I guess I can be.
