You wanna talk glamorous divas and bigger-than-life disco queens? Well then, there's no ignoring the fabulous Sylvester. And on this sprawling 1979 live album you'll learn why. Like Donna Summer (although he had a far better voice), Sylvester was a classic entertainer, fusing soul, Broadway schmaltz and modern club grooves. By the end of Living Proof you'll be on your knees, soaked in sweat and weeping for more sassy funk. Maybe you'll even be wearing a sequined gown.
