Album Review

On his second live album, Kenny Loggins puts together a special show consisting of rearranged versions of old favorites like "What A Fool Believes" (complete with co-author Michael McDonald on vocals) and "Your Mama Don't Dance." It's Loggins' version of an "unplugged" performance (despite a substantial backup band), and as such, a turning away from the technology-happy days of albums like Back To Avalon (which, by the way, is forgotten in a catalog promotion in the CD booklet), without quite returning to the more homegrown quality of early albums like Celebrate Me Home. The real question in Loggins' career is what will happen with his next set of new material, but as a placeholder, this release should be welcomed by his fans, who may find even "Footloose" tolerable in a barrelhouse piano arrangement.

Customer Reviews

One of the best live albums of all time.

This has to be one of the best live albums I’ve ever heard. If you can play like this live, then you have real talent.

Great Musicianship

The production engineering of this live album is wonderful. Some of the instrumental solos are amazing. Howard Leavy (sp) is an unbelieveable harmonica player. The songs are vintage, yet freshly acoustic, the guest performers are top-flite, and if you really want a treat (and can tolerate the new age preaching) get the DVD.

Loggins At His Very Best

This album was not only in support of the Leap of Faith album, but a benefit to save the Redwoods in Northern California. The music here is all different types, and the mish-mash is a welcome addition to the catalog of Kenny L. All the tracks here represent his many sides, from the Rock workouts on Your Mama Don't Dance, and the Swamp Boogie Piano version of Footloose, to the Jazz and R&B Stylings (My Favorite!) of Love Will Follow, What A Fool Believes, Celebrate Me Home and more. The album fashioned itself on an intimate setting, beautifully played music, and superb performances from everyone, including Guests Shanice and Michael McDonald. There of course was criticism about there being too much latter day material, and too much of a soul influence on the record. The thing of it is, if you look back historically, Loggins did restyle himself, more than once, in a vain of R&B and soulful pop, that to many an ear is incredibly endearing, entertaining and preferred. I usually skip the more rock, or Loggins and Messina (blech!) moments to get to the soulful stuff. His version of Now and Then here will make you emotional, as will the rousing heart stopping 8 minute version of Celebrate Me Home, here shedding it's rootsier sound for soul shouting and a jazzy improv in the middle. What A Fool Believes and This is It become percussive broodingly beautiful numbers with all kinds of goodies to savor. And the Duets with Shanice are both highlights as well. Their voices blend so beautifully together, and they trade off riffs like they've been singing together forever. Note the excited applause when the R&B diva comes back for Love Will Follow. At first, the crowd on I Would Do Anything had a weary "huh?" asthetic to it, but as she brought the audience in, they got into it, and the reaction at the end of both songs shows that she knows what she's doing, and has an affinity for beautiful lilting love songs. For me, you can't go wrong with these songs, and It has only gotten better with age. When I saw the genre listed here as country, I was kind of dissappointed but, let this reviewer tell you...this is the furthest from country you could get. It's an amalglam of Soul/Jazz/Pop/Rock and even new age. It's something for the ages to savor...give it a try! Also Recommended - Celebrate Me Home, Leap Of Faith, The Unimaginable Life (Even after finding out the pair had divorced, this album is still soul stirring and wonderfully made!) Happy Listening!
