5.0 out of 5 stars An Evening With Raphael Saadiq and Friends
In 2002, Raphael Saadiq released what seemed to be one of the year's most-antcipated albums: "Instant Vintage." It was adored by critics, but all of nine people bought the album, and Saadiq was soon released from his label at Universal before winning a Grammy nomination. No doubt, the experience must have been frustrating for the former member of Tony! Toni! Tone!, but it...

5.0 out of 5 stars An Evening With Raphael Saadiq and Friends, 22 July 2004

Burjiz (Schaffhausen, Switzerland) - See all my reviews
In 2002, Raphael Saadiq released what seemed to be one of the year's most-antcipated albums: "Instant Vintage." It was adored by critics, but all of nine people bought the album, and Saadiq was soon released from his label at Universal before winning a Grammy nomination. No doubt, the experience must have been frustrating for the former member of Tony! Toni! Tone!, but it apparently didn't hurt his career much, if at all. He may not sell as many records as he used to, but his talent for songwriting and producing remains intact. On his debut for his Pookie label, Saadiq releases a double CD which is a live performance at the House of Blues in Los Angeles. The mood and flavor of the concert is warm and intimate, as Saadiq cruises through many of his hits with the assistance of Joi, Tony! Toni! Tone!, D'Angelo (somebody call a search party for him), and DJ Quik among others. It'd be hard to pick out favorites on Disc 1 since all the performances are very good, but I have to single out "Let's Get Down," "It Never Rains," "Missing You" (performed by Joi), and the excellent "Anniversary." For me, disc 2's twin peaks are the velvet-smooth joint "Uptown" with Leslie Wilson and the kickin' "Be Here" with D'Angelo. These are two discs of groovilicious soul that nod back to the old school, a near-forsaken era when music was conceived with heart and emotion. Those who have followed this talented musician since the late 1980s won't be disappointed with this CD. It's a tight album that will have you hooked from the first note.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soul Sounds So Good By Him, 15 Oct 2003
He should be a superstar, but thank God those of us who know him keep him going through word of mouth. This is truly a powerful 2 disc set that's begging to have a companion dvd released. The colaboration's with Joi, Goapele, Ledisi, and his genesis Tony Toni Tone were such huge plusses. Get this and while your at it pick up his solo disc "Instant Vintage". Well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album, One of My Favourites, 23 Feb 2013

I love live albums and this is one of the best I have. Saadiq's voice is so soulful, even if he does get a little lost and goes off key! All my favourites are there on this album - the fact it's live, really makes me feel I'm right there in the audience. Highly recommended.
