The Three Degrees Live is a 1976 live album by Philadelphia-based female vocal trio The Three Degrees who scored major international success with 'When Will I See You Again?'. The album charted at #34 in the US R&B Album chart and at #199 in the Billboard Top 200.
During a UK tour in 1975, The Three Degrees performed at Bailey's in Leicester, England, and the evening's concert was recorded and subsequently released released by Philadelphia International Records as The Three Degrees Live. The set list for the concert was typical of what the group was doing at that time; a pleasing blend of pop, soul and showtunes, all done with style and grace. Aside from the group's biggest hits to date being performed, cover versions of songs by Stevie Wonder (Living For The City), Elton John (Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me) and the ladies performance of the Jimmy Webb penned track "Everybody Gets To Go The Moon" from the film The French Connection are clearly crowd pleasers.
The album was re-issued on CD in 2010 by Demon Music Group on the Edsel label, and features the original artwork. The original vinyl release credits the recording to be taken from a performance at Bailey's, London, England. This credit has been corrected on the digital re-issue.
