This album is a joy to listen to again and again. I think the Symphony (Disc 1, Track 7) is the funniest thing on record and is unsurpassed in the history of comedy. The Soaps is another highlight, while on Disc 2 my favourites are A Horse Or A Mule, Lovers and Girlfriends and I Had To Say It, in which Millie does a very funny send-up of the burgeoning Rap movement. The atmosphere of this album is not only funny, it's also very uplifting and a certain cure for depression. Highly recommended to those who like passionate, heartfelt music and have a raunchy sense of humour. The backing is superb throughout, with a perfect rapport between Millie and the band.

This 2 disc set is made up of a double album from 1979 'Live & Uncensored' and a single album from 1982 'Live & Outrageous'. The titles say it all! If there had been 'Parental Advisory Lyrics' stickers back then, then these albums would have qualified. Having said that, they are quite tame compared to some of what you hear today.

The first album was recorded at a concert in Los Angeles, and for the second, Millie was on home soil in Atlanta Georgia (she was born in Augusta).

Aside from all the mucking around, Millie always took the music seriously. The band knows it's business and the music is superb. She includes a lot of material from her studio albums, and some other items. The symphony (disc 1 track 7) remains one of the funniest things recorded, if you can stomach a bit of bad language.

She does a clever medley of Bobby Womacks 'Put Something Down On It' and the Rod Stewart hit 'Do You Think I'm Sexy?'. You can plainly hear where Rod borrowed that riff from. Nuff sed about that.

Other highlights for me are 'Be A Sweetheart/Didn't I Blow Your Mind This Time' which was a single release. The Delfonics sweet soul classic is charged with more raw emotion than you would have thought it could handle. The advice to the romantically downtrodden in the spoken 'Be A Sweetheart'is timeless and very funny.

She even covers a Boney M Song 'Never Change Lovers In The Middle Of The Night'. Her ability to cover all kinds of songs in her own style is part of her great talent.

The set closes with 'Ugly Men/This Is It' (not the Melba Moore hit), another great example of Millie's blend of raunchy comedy and great music.

This is a great value set for over 2 hours of classic soul music and comedy. You might not want to leave it laying around for the children to find 'though.

I bought this CD for my mum as a Christmas gift.
My mum owns the original LP record and really wanted a CD as the LP record is coming to its end.
So for her it was the perfect gift.

Millie is funny, full of energy & a real entertainer.
Mind you, if you don't like foul language, stay away from this CD.
