For Sade fans, her new CD "Lovers LIve" is now in stores. Of course, I had to have it. It was taped at two live concerts she did in California as part of her "Lovers Live" tour which never came to a city near me, unfortunately. Normally, I don't like "live" records because I don't like the sound of applause on music. But after the first song on this album, "Cherish the Day", I hardly noticed the clapping and screaming of enthusiastic fans. The arrangements are fresh, yet still recognizable as the originals. Best Paul Denman's bass lines are always clear. If I could be any bassist in the world, I'd be Denman. (Roscoe Beck, second. Christian McBride, third. Micheal Inez, fourth.) I was hoping there would be some new material from Sade, but all the songs are tried and true. Still I guess I never tire of the classic Sade music either. This album will get lots of play on my stereo. I just hope the band will soon come out with a new studio album. Hope springs eternal.
