Tony Orlando and the Lefty Brothers Band - Live at the Bottom Line

This is the only live recording ever released by Tony Orlando, culled from two shows that took place at Greenwich Village club the Bottom Line in Orlando's hometown of New York City.

Orlando wastes no time getting to the hits, opening the show with the cheery "Tie a Yellow Ribbon (Round the Ole Oak Tree)" and also playing the similarly massive "Knock Three Times" early in the set.

Also included are takes on "I've Got Rhythm," "Spanish Harlem," "Say, Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose?," a Beatles medley and new song at the time "Caribbean Jewel."

Everything is performed with Orlando's typical verve and panache and listeners won't miss Tony's old band Dawn a single bit.
