Why Is This Out So Late?

"This CD originall was only a UK release and was first released two years ago. It (UK version) is a far better version than the US version. The UK version has 17 songs vice the US version's 12 songs. The only thing the US release has over the UK release is that the US version indicates this is a live CD which the UK release does not. Being American I like to buy items from the US, especially when it comes to music. But when a CD is released, I look at both UK and US versions and determine which one I buy. Sometimes it's better to buy the UK version such as the case in Lionel's Renaissance CD. Regarding Encore, I think I'm going to buy the UK version. It is a far better version than the US release.
Very Good Live Show

"OUTRAGIOUS!!!!!!!!!! Lionel Richie always brings it to the stage&this Disc Captures the Magic of his Many Classic Songs over the years. the Band is tight&Lionel Vocally is on point. the pacing of the show is quick&very good all the way through. Hello was cool,but I really dug how he did "All Night Long" Live. he added a extra vibe to that song live. I wish the Collection could have kept on going because it was tight. very well Arranged&everything was Smooth. Lionel Richie is a Musical Genius."
Believe It Or Not, He's Still Got It

"You'd think that after nearly 20 years past his heyday and a few voice operations that Lionel Richie may have lost his touch. But this live album proves just the opposite. Richie hasn't lost any of his magic.
"Encore" may be brief (12 songs) but it is a very lively and enjoyable concert. Lionel blasts his way through some of his best known tunes, including "Three Times A Lady", "Easy", "Brick House", "Penny Lover", "All Night Long", "Stuck On You", "Say You, Say Me" and "Dancing On The Ceiling". While these renditions will do nothing to make you forget the originals, they are nonetheless great performances. The only reason I gave the cd four stars instead of five is because of the mediocre (and short) performances of "Hello", "Running With The Night" and "Angel".
So give yourself and pick up "Encore". It's definitely worth it."
