CD Reviews

Rufus & Chaka Khan In Rare Form...Simply Blazing!!
chakasworld | Atlanta, GA United States | 04/29/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"By the time this CD was released, Chaka was no longer a member of Rufus (she agreed to this recording to fulfill her contract with the group!), and I am glad that they went out blazing!! The music is in high gear, and Chaka HITS ALL OF HER NOTES!! The CD can almost be called 'The Greatest Hits..Live!', but we are treated to an extra live song (Ain't That Peculiar), which was never recorded by Chaka & Rufus!! With the decision to devote 3 of the 4 sides to live music, a few songs were omited (including 'Everlasting Love' & 'The Best Of Your Heart'), BUT the 4th side contains studio songs. Included are the CLASSIC 'Ain't Nobody', which sounds like it should've been on a solo Chaka CD, and Khan's TOUR DE FORCE rendition of 'Don't Go To Strangers'!! I have a rare live version of this song, and Chaka tears a hole in it, SERIOUSLY! Just awesome! 'Don't Go To Strangers' may be Chaka's finest interpretation of a Jazz Standard, and when it's over, you really want more from The Diva!!! F.Y.I. - The omitted live version of 'Everlasting Love', which Chaka also sang the sh** out of, can be found on the soundtrack album for 'Night Shift' (1982, Warner Brothers). Good luck finding that one! Also, 'Stompin' at the Savoy' (PLUS 'Everlasting Love'!!) CAN FIT onto a single CD, so what's Warner Brothers waiting for ?
Peace, SD (of 'Chaka's World')"
I LOVE THIS ALBUM!!

"This is the album that most reminds me of my youth(ish) period in the '80s! If you're English, and were within earshot of Radio London (Robbie Vincent, Geoff Young et al) around that time, you'll probably know what I mean. The music in this album is, quite simply, real music - one to flex your volume control to! :-))"
Live is Live

"This is the best live recording I have ever heard. Rufus and Chaka were at their very, very best, so much so that some of the songs sound better than the original. The double cd also include 4 new songs including the now famous Ain't Nobody and a wonderful rendition of the jazz standard, Don't Go To Strangers. Chaka thrives when she sings jazz, just brilliant. A must have cd for any who loves live music."
