George Benson Weekend in LA Review

Live. Released 1991.  

BBC Review

Arguably his biggest hit and most recognisable track.

David O'Donnell 2009

George Benson's recording career began at the age of twenty-one as a jazz guitarist. He is however, better known to the public at large as a Pop and R&B singer, famous for such hits as Give Me the Night, Lady Love Me (One More Time), Turn Your Love Around, Inside Love(So Personal), In Your Eyes, and This Masquerade, among others.

Recorded live at Los Angeles' Roxy Club on 30th of September, 1st of October and 2nd of October 1977, Weekend In LA captures Benson and his band in buoyant mood, with shouty encouragement from the jumping audience.

The album was also the first time Benson had ever introduced On Broadway – a track that would go on to be arguably his biggest hit and most recognisable track.
