The Elusive Chanteuse

Recommended Posts

If you've been wondering why I've been quiet for a couple of hours, its because I've been listening back to each and all the tunes I posted in this thread . Brockwell Park, Lambeth, June 1st, be there ;)

So many tunes, but this one shines out! God I love Badu

Will I escape this vanity?
Or will I keep on smoking trees?

Been meaning to post this glorious tune since I first heard it.

Love this, Album June 8th...

One you really need to turn up loud!

Lauryn Hill announced a stadium tour and it sold out due to evil, stinking touts in hours yesterday.

I saw her in 2013 in a smaller venue, Brixton O2. Don't believe any negative reviews of that night which you might have read in the Evening Standard or the Mail, those reviews were bullshit. The only time I heard the whole crowd burst into song as they were leaving the gig was there. It was beautiful. I was stood next to Joss Stone queuing in line with all the rest of us that night. We all heard something special.

I'm not paying £300+ for VIP tickets to a UK stadium gig , nor am I inclined to pay over the odds on the reseller sites thus supporting the fucking touts. I might pay 60 euros to see the show in Amsterdam on Dec 6th.

All that said, let us please remind ourselves of exactly why many millions of pounds changed hands yesterday.....

I wanna turn those blue lights into strobe lights
Not blue flashing lights, maybe fairy lights

Maybe even fairy lights, not blue flashing lights

UK / US Cross pollination......

It was of course 2014 not 2013 she last played UK / Brixton, oops.

I'm really worried about this stadium tour TBH. It has been a long time and the masses might expect more than Lauryn is able to offer. I do hope I'm wrong. The voice was gone for a decade, it came back, but is it stadium back?

Hello bamber,

Heard this for the first time in decades recently, and thought you might appreciate the vibe? 

 

All the best.

My computer (possibly also my own brain) has just said 'No'. As a result I have just had to quote myself in order to make a post. Honest. Or am I a narcissist of Biblical proportion? Who's to say? I'm certainly not going to start squealing like a canary!

Anyway, I'm including another track for your delight :)

Janelle Monae has a new album out...

I've heard some of her stuff recently and really like it, as does my misses. She (my misses), without fail, dances around the room whenever her stuff comes on the radio or via a playlist. I don't know why I've posted that, but I have, and there's no going back now!

Badu was wonderful in London last week. It is a city I used to live in a long time ago and still (as it turns out) love...

I've said it before, I don't have love for full operatic. They hit all the right notes and all that to be sure, but Opera has no groove. You need the groove... Lesser singer, better music...

Hello Yog-star,

Please do not have qualms regarding responding to one's own posts. If I did that I'd be forever an arbitrate to my own reflection, which would not be good. Be happy responding to your own reflection, at this time of the morning, there is little choice.

Kate Bush.

Bamber x.

Etta's swansong. I love this because she never looked so beautiful and because, without question, she had the greatest voice of all time.

Etta James...

I've no idea of who Badu is. If it's that lady in the film, then she can certainly drum up a crowd by the looks / sounds of things. It's obvious to me now that I must investigate further. I need to know what she / they sing / play. I will do so now, because if I just make a note of it for later then there's a chance that I'll never listen to it at all. And that shouldn't be. 

Tara a bit. :)

You clearly have not been paying attention to my endless promotion of her here then * Disapointed *. It is however an excellent excuse to post my favourite Erykah Budu tune here again though.

* Seriously, you have no idea who Badu is, seriously :O *

She also said very recently that she could see the good in Hitler and Bill Cosby.

She got in trouble for that.

That one put a big smile on my face by the way.

1976, 1977, 1978 and 1979 by the way were the best years for music. Disco, Punk and Reggae all had their heydays right around there.
