The Masqueraders - Everybody Wanna Live On download album
The Masqueraders had been around since the early ’60s, releasing singles for labels such as Bell, Wand, and Chips Moman’s Memphis-based AGP. In the ’70s, the group released two singles for Hi Records, then this 1975 album debut. Everybody Wanna Live On benefited from the subtle and innovative production values of Isaac Hayes; the title track is a powerful dance number that boasts not quite didactic lyrics and Jones’ patented robust vocals.
A1. Everybody Wanna Live On. Written-By – Eula Jean Rivers, The Raders. Everybody Wanna Live On (LP, Album). ABC Records, HBS. 9022-921.
Title: Everybody Wanna Live On. Label: Stax. Ah, that voice! That voice! Lee Hatim (previously Jones before his conversion to the Muslim faith), my friends. This album was released in 1976, their debut album for Isaac Hayes’ own Hot Buttered Soul label and it sounds absolutely lovely. Why? Partly the group itself and partly because of Isaac Hayes standing in as producer and seconded as keyboard player on this LP. The album begins with a giant of a track, the absolutely humungous title track which not only grabs you by the throat and refuses to let go, even if approached by a whip and a solid wooden upturned chair, this track spans over eight and half minutes. An amazing start to any album.
Everybody Wanna Live On was the first and most successful, spawning two R&B chart hits, including the original version of what is now considered a vocal group classic, their own composition ‘(Call Me) The Traveling Man’.
Everybody Wanna Live On benefited from the subtle and innovative production values of Isaac Hayes; the title track is a powerful dance number that boasts not quite didactic lyrics and Jones' patented robust vocals. Although the group excelled at mid-tempo material, like the hooky "Please Don't Try (To Take Me Up to the Sky)," what typified the Hayes/Masqueraders alliance was mature and thoughtful ballads. One track in particular stands out, the dream-like "(Call Me) The Traveling Man," boasting both a poignant arrangement and a perfect performance from Jones.
