Bill Withers: Live At Carnegie Hall (A&M — double album)
Nick Kent, New Musical Express, 23 June 1973
SOUNDS OF applause, opening bars or lazy stereotyped black funk, then a hoarse voice yelping out "I don't mind you're using me — uh! — 'cos ah'm a-usin' you. Sing, y'all." After five minutes of aforementioned jive, break — "Like ter thank y'all fer comin'. Like ter thank y'all fer comin' out in the rain tonite. 'Preciate that. Yeh. Ah luv yer. Y'all crazy. Yeh. Thankyuh. Thankyuh."
