✨✧ D'AngeloLive At The Jazz Cafe, London – The Complete Show ... CD
EMI, 2000. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The first-ever full length presentation of a legendary live set from D'Angelo – recorded early in his career, and working through a host of classic tunes that really add in a nice layer to his own great music! D'Angelo's caught here in the legendary temple of groove – London's Jazz Cafe, home to some of the best funk and soul shows in Europe over the past few decades – and a perfect setting for the singer to really break past his more hitbound material, and relaxed in an old school format with a tight funky combo on the stage. The crowd is extremely enthusiastic, and the whole thing falls together beautifully – with a hard raw soul vibe that's similar to, but edgier than, D'Angelo's studio albums – much funkier overall, and more in a 70s soul mode. Instrumentation is very heavy on Fender Rhodes – and titles include "Sh*t, Damn, Motherf*cker", "Me & Those Dreamin Eyes Of Mine", "Brown Sugar", and "Cruisin" – plus great covers of 70s soul hits "Fencewalk", "Can't Hide Love" and "Sweet Sticky Thing". CD features titles never issued before – including a 9 minute long take on "Lady". CD

✨✧ Sy SmithSyberspace Social ... CD
Sy Smith, 2005. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from one of the freshest new voices around – the lovely Sy Smith! Sy's got a cosmically-inflected musical vision here – one that seems to borrow bits from the London and Philly underground, but deliver an overall groove that's got plenty of sunny soulful touches! Sy uses her electronics carefully – never letting them overwhelm the vocals or guide the tune too much, but letting them fill in the spaces with a nice sense of energy. The set features production work by Ali Shaeed Muhammad, James Poyser, and Nicolay – and titles include "Time", "Fa Sho", "Aquarius Rising", "Love & Such", "Dreamtrip", "No Place Like Love", "Stand Alone", "Bruise", and "Honey Child".
