Maze Live In Los Angeles 1986

Live In Los Angeles is the second live album by Maze featuring Frankie Beverly to be released. It is also available in some regions as a DVD.

It was recorded at the Universal Amphitheatre on 1 January 1986 and follows on from the excellent Live In New Orleans.

It comes in two formats:

  • a single CD/mp3 download with 13 tracks as originally released in 1986
  • a double CD/mp3 download with 18 tracks in the 2003 remastered version

Both are readily available and therefore care needs to be taken to make sure you get the version you want. Like the earlier New Orleans album, it has been extended by the inclusion of new tracks recorded in the studio. This is odd considering the latest version is still criticised for not including the full concert.

Maze Live In New Orleans 1980

Live In New Orleans is the first live album by Maze featuring Frankie Beverly and was recorded in the city in November 1980. It also included four new studio recorded songs.

Frankie Beverly is the smooth voiced leader and songwriter of the band.

I have mixed feelings about this “live” album.
