Editorial Reviews

D'Angelo debuted in 1995, hailed as the new sound of soul, a genius singer-songwriter soul man in the tradition of Stevie Wonder, Prince, Curtis Mayfield, et al. His Virgin/EMI album Brown Sugar, along with the hit title song and a smash cover of Smokey Robinson's 'Cruisin', proved the hype was right.
It's generally thought that the artist's next album was Voodoo, released in 2000. In between, however, fans were treated to a six-track EP: Live At The Jazz Café, London, in October 1996 but in Japan only. The record, recorded in Setpember '95 during a rare U.K. promo tour, proved hard to come by and became an instant collector's item.
This new release of Live At The Jazz Café, London is not only the first domestic release of the album, it contains the complete show for the first time anywhere. Now included are four unreleased performances - three of them covers of tracks originally by D'Angelo influences Mandrill, Ohio Players and Al Green - plus a longer version of 'Lady'. This edition also places all of the tracks in the correct sequence for the first time, as they were performed in a sweaty club when 'D' was on the cusp of stardom.
The package uses the original cover artwork of the Japanese release, but inside is an exclusive new essay by Alan Leeds, of D'Angelo's management team, who is also known for his tenure with artists ranging from James Brown to Chris Rock. Included as well is an English translation of the original Japanese liner notes, which include a brief 1995 interview with D'Angelo.

Once again, D'Angelo has given us what we have been waiting for. This live version of his fantastic Brown Sugar album was a refreshing and remarkable gift for avid fans like myself. For musicians who appreciate REAL instruments and live music, also like myself, then this is the epitome of both. D'Angelo even throws caution to the wind to cover the Earth, Wind and Fire hit, "You Can't Hide Love" and does the piece justice in my opinion. This is a great CD to have in your collection, in fact, I couldn't wait for the U.S. release so I had is shipped from Japan. It was definitely worth it!!!!!

This CD would have rated five stars if it contained more songs. I've seen D'Angelo perform live three times, including one of his first few live performances. He's only gotten better with time. This CD is good but does not include some of the great songs that D'Angelo sings in concert. I had the opportunity to meet D'Angelo in Washington DC at his first concert there, and he is nice as he is talented. If you have not seen D'Angelo live, this is a taste of what you missed!

the "brown sugar man" has definitely dropped a funky with this cd. for those appreciating the atmosphere of an artist working with a band, this cd is a must have. the only reason i can't give it 5-stars is because have to alway skip "sh*t, d*mn, mf" so my kids won't hear it.

It took a lot of patience, but 3 months after first hearing about this cd I finally have it in my hands. It was well worth the wait. I recommend this album to any D'Angelo fan. The sound quality of the cd is very good, about the same as Erykah Badu's live album. In fact, upon closer inspection, you'll find one important similarity between the two cd's. Both feature Norman "Keys" Hurt on keyboards, who essentially is responsible for that "vibe" you feel on both cd's. Most likely, this album probably was inspiration for Erykah's, which was recorded 2 years (1997) after this one was (1995). Surprisingly, of the six songs on this album, "Brown Sugar" (his 1st & biggest hit) probably was the weakest of the bunch. Don't get me wrong, it still sounds good, I just don't think the original version of the song translates well over live instrumentals. I've already got "peeps" trying to borrow this one. All I've got to say is "No my brothers, you got to get your own".

How could DevinChristy say D'Angelo is not a complete singer? You are crazy in the head! D'Angelo is the innovater of NeO-Soul Music! If it wasn't for Brown Sugar, we wouldn't be having this conversation & i'd be listening to some one like Keith Sweat or something Yuck! He is the one who started out Erykah Badu so that she ended up going plat plus,& do you think that the biggest Female Grammy winner,Lauryn Hill would have put him on her Cd if he wasn't a complete singer? D'Angelo is the man & dont nobody forget it !

Just want to say a few things about D'angelo. First of all I think he is a one of a kind artist. And when I say artist I mean he brings the true meaning of the very word. He is a performer like no other. He writes, he hermonizes like it should be done, he is very creative, unique he sings to his max. When he gives a concert he gives his all. So if your a D'angelo fan and he gives a concert do not pass it up. No matter the cost he will give you your money' worth.

I agree with Mistermaxx, this is simply good music. Neo Soul is nothing more than a label used by companies to get the "bohemian dollar", if you will. This is good soul music. Nothing more, nothing less. There's not a whole lot to be said about the album due to it's short running time -- 6 tracks at around 38 minutes. The sound quality is good, the background singers are on point, and D'Angelo knocks this one out of the park. He even tackles an Earth Wind & Fire classic with relative ease. Whether you are a D'Angelo fan or you just dig good r&b, you should get your hands on this.

Ignore the stooge that is trying to sell this for $100 though...it's not THAT good. I'd probably pay $20 - $30 for this, max.
