Image of Erykah Badu


She grew up listening to '70s soul and '80s hip-hop, but Erykah Badu drew more comparisons to Billie

Holiday upon her breakout in 1997, after the release of her first album, Baduizm. The grooves and production on the album are bass-heavy R&B, but Badu's languorous, occasionally tortured vocals and delicate phrasing immediately removed her from the legion of cookie-cutter ...

Product Description


There is always cause for concern when a promising new artist follows up a solid debut with a live album rehashing all the same material. After seeing Erykah Badu steal the "Smokin Grooves Tour" in the summer of 1996, however, it only makes sense that her record company decided to release Live as a stopgap between her next studio recording. To put it mildly, the Badu live experience is anything but typical. There is a kindred bond between the singer and her audiences which translates wonderfully onto the disc. It's in the warmth of the songs, the intimacy with which Badu addresses the crowd, and the constant chants of "Erykah!" emanating from the masses. For her part, Badu does a wonderful job revisiting the material from her superb debut Baduizm. She also takes on an assortment of covers, ranging from Roy Ayers's "Searching" to the Mary Jane Girls' "All Night Long", making each one sound distinctly her own. The most captivating moment, though, is a new number called "Tyrone", in which she most eloquently tells a dense boyfriend to take a hike. --Aidin Vaziri

5.0 out of 5 stars Puts ALL Studio albums to shame!!!!! 17 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When is Erykah Badu going to get worldwide recognition? This album blends the amazing vocal talents of Badu with the thick, passionate music of the band (and singers.) Quite possibly the most outstanding and fullfilling album of it's genre I believe. (And believe me I own the lot.) The soul that is put into the likes of Tyrone and On and On is unbelievable! And if you want something to give you a bit of a kick, there is no better than the Chaka Kahn cover (Stay)! Believe me-this is a must!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars What Baduizm should have been 18 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It's rare to find a live album of such quality, never mind one that so outshines the studio album that it's based upon.
Erykah and her band work through the songs from the studio album giving them a smoother, less harsh, feel. The performance is immaculate; delivered with style and humour.
If you only buy one live album, make it this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic live album 15 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
This was the first album by Erykah Badu that I heard from start to finish - and I was hooked. Not just by her amazing voice but by the amazing songs and band she had backing her up.

I then purchased "Baduizm" and from there I can now count her as one of my all time favourite singers.

If you know who she is and what she can do, buy this album - its as simple as that!
