I came across this CD while writing my review for Erykah Badu's new CD "New Amerykahn..." on Amazon and had never heard anything about it. It appears to be a bootleg released on some label called Think Differently Music, and it comprises some odds and ends from Erykah's career. Despite being a random collection, it is quite cohesive, much like any of her studio releases.
A few tracks have appeared on previous Badu albums; "Ye-yo" from 1997's "Live", "Didn't cha know" and "Bag lady" from "Mama's gun" ("Bag lady" here is the remix version that made Billboard's top 10 and not the album version), "I want you" (with the awesome electric guitar ending edited out), "Think twice", and "Wu" (which is a snippet of "Woo") from "Worldwide underground".
A few others had also been previously released; The Grammy winning "You got me" from The Roots' 1999 album "Things fall apart", the Grammy winning "Love of my life" with Common from the "Brown sugar" soundtrack, "Fly away" from "The Hollywood recordings" by Sa-Ra Creative Partners, the breezy "Hold on" with Pharaoh Monch (with lyrics about having pride in black beauty, it starts off with Erykah talking to her daughter about being teased at school) from his album "Desire", and "Your precious love" with D'angelo.
The others are "Your mind" (a swinging retro ballad which becomes a funky ditty towards the final 2 minutes and recorded live), "Love hangover" (her outstanding disco/neo soul tribute to Diana Ross recorded live at the BET awards 2007 with a few bars of her "I want you" thrown in), "Apple tree cafe" (lovely jazz song with muted sax and pianos), "Music is everything" (a sparse funky horn sprinkled song), "Live" (a brief jazz/funk number with a scratchy bassline), and "Today" (a jazzy ballad with a groovy bassline and sprinklings of flute).
Chances are there are a few odds and ends here which you don't already own (like I also discovered). Essential to every Baduist!
Just don't buy this rubbish - poor quality copies of live tracks, the cover lists 18 tracks, and I can only "hear" 17
I'm just shocked this CD is offered to purchase on Amazon!!!
