Live at Royal Albert Hall [CD/DVD Combo]
Format: Audio CD|Change
Price:$11.98+ Free shipping with Amazon Prime


Joan Armatrading's new "Live @ the Royal Albert Hall" blazes out of my changer. She has been smoking hot with her most recent studio releases and this live set has such dynamic clarity to the recording that you feel like you're right with her in London. The set opens with a blazing version of "A Woman in Love" with Joan's stinging guitar sizzling out of the speaker conveying such urgency. "Something's Gotta Blow" which was originally in her 2007 CD Into the Blues smokes & sizzles with urban discontent. "Come to me baby, stay by my side; don't try to fake it with little white lies," Joan sings trying to salvage a faithless lover on "Promises," originally from her amazing CD This Charming Life. IMHO, her guitar work rivals Neil Young's best in sheer intensity. "Love & Affection" was originally on 1979's album "Steppin' Out" and shines with Gary Foote's moody sax solo. "My Baby's Gone" was in my personal top ten a few years ago and stings with a maelstrom of electric guitar. "The Weakness in Me," which was on Joan's 1981 CD Walk Under Ladders twitters with vulnerability as she is drawn into an affair, "To you I gave my affection right from the start." John Giblin's bass throbs addictively in "Heading Back to New York City." The CD does not let down with the naughty "Call Me Names" and "Drop the Pilot" with its chorus, "Animal, mineral, physical, spiritual, I'm the one you need." There are also DVD/CD and a longer import version available. This is a dynamic set from an amazing singer & unique songwriter. Bravo!

This is an excellent CD/DVD COMBO. The sound quality and photography on both the Cd and DVD is very good. The only criticism that I could have is that the DVD has 21 tracks. The live Cd companion disc only has 15 tracks. To me, that is a real shame because the DVD is SO GOOD that you are left wishing the cd had the missing 6 tracks on it. I quess that's when Mick would say - "You can't always get what you want". I highly recommend this combo to anyone who has good taste in music and most definitely anyone who loves Joan Armatrading. I think that the DVD is worth the price alone. YOU WILL DIG IT! 5 STARS!!!

Not too bad of a live recording. It was a treat to listen to her sing and play other songs that I don't hear from her other album. Love her guitar playing - it's so unique like her.

Returned due to Amazon claiming that this was 2 cd's with full concert.
Will order from England and get all 21 songs!
Concert is great- heard on Spotify before purchase

I can't find anything negative to say about Joan...ever, but this is truly an amazing performance by an incredible artist. I'm generally not a supporter of live performances, but Joan's are so polished and acoustically perfect, she is one of the few exceptions.

Something to fill your heart and soul.
