What's the quality of this? Any improvisation? extended play?

    excellent quality, came out on toshiba japan. I would say it's essential for any kufi soul lover.

    I'm not sure what you're talking about (is this booted outtakes?) but a friend of mine received a cassette while the album was still being produced that I had for a little but gave back (unfortunate as it was among a lot of stuff that later got destroyed and I never copied it)

    It had a Hendrix excerpt at the beginning, and there was a very unfinished version of Fela's "Water No Get Enemy" that was supposed to have Lauryn Hill on it (that section even had D singing something about how this was where her part should go)

    BTW- the 'Lady' 12" has the live version from this album and its really good, there's a long vamp at the end... never heard the rest. I've got a boot of a show from the Voodoo tour thats great though. I think it may be the same one that was broadcast as a radio show.

    The JC set can be readily found on slsk. Ditto that "Spanish Fly" take you mention. There is also live set from the Brixton Academy kiciking around, but the quality is poor. Give that one a miss. Highlight of the bootlegs for me is the track that eventually became "Afrika" on the Voodoo set, which IMHO is sonned by the embryonic bootleg form of just a piano and voice. This track is sometimes listed as "There will come a day".

    I don't have that with me today.

    A double vinyl set was pressed up, says promo only. Has different (more?) tracks to the CD I think.

    My friend has the LP version and as far as i can tell its put out by those same uk guys that release those dodgy anthologies of premo and dillas work. It has the same cover as pictured but the font looks slightly different. The sound quality is doo doo...However it is D'Angelo live so as long as you don't intend on planning to play it out i think its worth picking up. After listening to this it inspired me to go pull out all his other work.

    Will he ever get his act together again? "Voodoo" is classic. I didn't like it at first, but that was probably because my stereo couldn't do it justice.

  • dang. I thought this thread was about the greatest 60s brazilian bar band gettin' back together

    It's good for what it is, a live EP of D'Angelo back when he was still with Angie Stone (who is on background vocals). Some of the live tracks were released domestically on 12" and CD singles, but here you get to hear the full "Lady" with the slow intro before it kicks in. "Heaven Must Be Like This" sounds like a studio track, but all they did was take out the crowd sounds.

    I believe the 12" shown in this thread is sourced from the original FM broadcast, which is why it has the extra songs.








  • thanks for posting these, i can up that live album later tonight
