"Moondance is a song that Anita Baker introduced to me!! I have her sing that song on a TV show in the 80's with Mr. George Duke backing her up on the keyboards!!!!! I love that song!!! On this CD, she does a bang up job!!!!!!

Like the other posts, this CD is a compilation of concert dates while she was on tour for "Rapture". I think that for those of us who have not inhaled everything that Anita Baker has done would enjoy this CD. Yes, the songs fade in and out from song to song. That's because the song come from different concerts.
THAT NOT A BAD THING TO ME!! I purchased this CD and immediately turned it up really loud cuz this is good music. And, Anita Baker LIVE is truly awesome!!

Best tracks: Moondance, Been So Long, Mystery ***** 5 STARS**** for Anita !!!"
A great performer

"I'm not very into Anita Baker's music, and i'm not a collector of her. I used to listen to Rapture back in the 80s and i still enjoy it very much. When i found out this live release i decided to purchase it because i like live performances. I'm glad i bought it.
Since i'm not a collector, i didn't have any of the versions here included, so to me this is a wonderful listening pleasure. I understand 3 titles come from the original VHS, 1 is a b-side from a 1989 single (but it is actually another 1986 performance) and the remaining 5 titles come from a japanese EP.
Probably the 5 songs from the japanese EP were gathered from different USA/Europe 7'' and 12'' singles for the japanese market. So, essentially this CD is a b-sides live collection. This fact adds value to the product in my opinion.
That's even the reason why the songs are faded in and out. They are taken straight from the original releases tapes. To me this is a wonderful live collection, and it would be very cool if a real complete concert from that era is issued, too. If only to compare the 2 releases and tell what's best.
Loved the live album! Showed Anita's true talents!

"When I see a new Anita Baker album, new songs, or best of, I have to have it!!!!! This live album is just fabulous! All of the songs from Rapture sound phenomenal live. And I love the Van Morrison song that she sang to push the album to 44 minutes. The verdict is, Anita was at the top of her game that year when the Rapture album dominated much of 1986 along with Janet Jackson and Whitney Houston having more hits from her '85 debut. She sounded like she had a fun time doing that live show in Washington. The liner notes from that writer makes you feel like you're actually at that show. So while we're waiting for a new Anita album, this album more than makes up for that lost time. Just beautiful!"
