By the time this CD was released, Chaka was no longer a member of Rufus (she agreed to this recording to fulfill her contract with the group!), and I am glad that they went out blazing!! The music is in high gear, and Chaka HITS ALL OF HER NOTES!! The CD can almost be called 'The Greatest Hits..Live!', but we are treated to an extra live song (Ain't That Peculiar), which was never recorded by Chaka & Rufus!! With the decision to devote 3 of the 4 sides to live music, a few songs were omited (including 'Everlasting Love' & 'The Best Of Your Heart'), BUT the 4th side contains studio songs. Included are the CLASSIC 'Ain't Nobody', which sounds like it should've been on a solo Chaka CD, and Khan's TOUR DE FORCE rendition of 'Don't Go To Strangers'!! I have a rare live version of this song, and Chaka tears a hole in it, SERIOUSLY! Just awesome! 'Don't Go To Strangers' may be Chaka's finest interpretation of a Jazz Standard, and when it's over, you really want more from The Diva!!! F.Y.I. - The omitted live version of 'Everlasting Love', which Chaka also sang the sh** out of, can be found on the soundtrack album for 'Night Shift' (1982, Warner Brothers). Good luck finding that one! Also, 'Stompin' at the Savoy' (PLUS 'Everlasting Love'!!) CAN FIT onto a single CD, so what's Warner Brothers waiting for ?
Peace, SD (of 'Chaka's World')

This is the best live recording I have ever heard. Rufus and Chaka were at their very, very best, so much so that some of the songs sound better than the original. The double cd also include 4 new songs including the now famous Ain't Nobody and a wonderful rendition of the jazz standard, Don't Go To Strangers. Chaka thrives when she sings jazz, just brilliant. A must have cd for any who loves live music.

This is the album that most reminds me of my youth(ish) period in the '80s! If you're English, and were within earshot of Radio London (Robbie Vincent, Geoff Young et al) around that time, you'll probably know what I mean. The music in this album is, quite simply, real music - one to flex your volume control to! :-))

This is a terrific record of an excellent band. It is highly representative of what their performances were like. I travelled as stage manager with Chaka and her post-Rufus band (with Tony Maiden on guitar, though), and heard her perform these tunes night after night. I never tired of it then, and I haven't tired of this recording. R & B like it should be.

As any Chaka Khan fan knows by now, she ended her association with the legendary funk group after the completion of this album, which also included her smash, "Ain't Nobody," which was the highlight of the album. This album showcases why the group was so talented, and by having a good chunk of their greatest hits sung live, they went out in style.

get it. the definitive rufus live collection. in top form, you can't beat it. very well recorded and mastered. the band is in top form. tony. bobby. j.r. are all there with jerry hey's famous seawind horn section backing them up. plus you get some great solo chaka tracks (that were new releases at the time). i remember this was the first official release of the classic jam "ain't nobody". other solo tracks do not appear here but this is a rufus live cd so i ain't complaining. 'I'm Every Woman" is a song recorded by Chaka Khan in 1978. It was Chaka Khan's first hit outside of her recordings with Rufus so all her solo hit song's aren't all on this gig, but "what you gonna do for me" sure is! Anyway this is still a must have for any true chaka fan or rufus fan.

This Double Album set is a Must-Have on the Double. Chaka Khan and Rufus rock the house on this live recording. And on the last track "Don't Go to Strangers" is so velvet, smooth and beautiful. (Ralph Burns penned the arrangements on this one incl. special guest Joe Sample on piano). This song is like a outstanding jazz standard which turns you on and keeps you going and feel blessed.

After a couple years recording separately from each other (and having very different levels of success),Rufus and Chaka Khan finally reunited for a tour in early 1982. It was with the late 70's lineup of the band featuring John Robinson on drums and David Hawk Wolinski on keyboards and synthesizers. Despite the attitudes when Chaka left the band for a solo career? Their reunion tour showcased that their magical musical chemistry still had enough fire in at this point to sustain itself wonderfully. And one particular stretch of shows at NYC's iconic Savoy theater proved that in surprising abundance.

Songs such as "You Got The Love","Once You Get Started","Sweet Thing","Tell Me Something Good","Stop On By","Pack'd My Bags","Stay" and "Do You Love What You Feel" are high energy takes on the classic songs,actually modernizing some of the instrumental sound very well for an early 80's live performance. On "Dance With Me",Hawk brings in heavy bass synthesizers which adds heavier beef to the already percussive groove. "At Midnight" finds the original's synths replaced by the actual horn charts they were replacing to begin with. They also throw down a hard driving bass/guitar funk version of Marvin Gaye's "Ain't That Peculiar". Not to mention s wonderfully chorded take on Chaka's solo hit "What 'Cha Gonna For Me".

There are also give new studio songs on this album. One is Hawk's electro funk mid tempo classic "Ain't Nobody"-such a powerful groove it became a bit comeback hit for Rufus. "One Million Kisses" is a wonderful meeting of sleek urban contemporary soul and the rigidity of new wave.
