has two platinum albums for the world
to hear but it's sometimes it's the album
performed lived in from a stage that allows
you appreciate the artist. Live From
Philadelphia features John Legend
coming home to the place he got his big
career flying high off the ground.
While Legend is from Ohio, Legend chipped
his teeth in Philadelphia while a student
at the University ofPennsylvania. It was
there that he met Kanye West's cousin,
a fellow student, and the magic eventually
happened. This performance allowed Legend
the opportunity to unite with many of
the people he worked with when he performed
under his given name of John Stephens
include members of the band and choir.
has 19-tracks on this LP, which was only
available at Target (at least at the beginning)
and they include all the favorites like
"Save Room", "Heaven",
"PDA (We Just Don't Care)",
"Used To Love U" and the megahit
"Ordinary People". Legend also
brings out a special guest Corinne Bailey
Rae and does their rendition of "Where
Is The Love".
LP is nice because it allows to combine
all the hits from the two albums into
one LP. The choir does some nice things
to accompany Legend and while Legend isn't
known for his amazing range, he does do
a nice job with his smooth sound.
give this LP three GeoGlobes. It would
have higher if there some remixes and
nice to hear some new original material
but I guess that's being greedy. Along
with the cut with Bailey Rae he does a
bit of the Beatles "I Want You (She's
So Heavy)" "Dance To The Music"
and "Feel Like Makin' Love".
