One of the most beloved "PA Tapes", from the tail end of Go-Go's golden age, re-issued in various forms over the years. 

Note-perfect renditions of jazz and pop standards over a nonstop go-go beat, with that live set ambience where the audience is always part of the show. Chuck is in peak form and full of love with his booming baritone, jazz and improv flourishes, and unforgettable scat-guitar leads.  Likewise this incarnation of the Soul Searchers, with drummer Ricky Wellman and trumpeter Donald Tillery in particular blowing the Skate Land roof off.
