iTunes Editors’ Notes

Recorded on the Fourth of July, 2005, at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Alicia Keys’ Unplugged abandons the studio sheen of Songs In A Minor, leaving her voice, her piano playing, and her impeccable feel for classic soul to stand alone. Keys darts from the kinetic funk of “Heartburn” to the spoken word jazz of “Streets of New York” and the bruised gospel blues of “Fallin’,” her band nimbly shadowing her every movement and providing full-bodied orchestration for every one of Keys’ shifting moods. She reinvents her radio hits, and with the R&B standard “Every Little Bit Hurts” she follows in a tradition that includes Brenda Holloway and Gladys Knight, then turns around to transform the Stones’ country lament “Wild Horses” into a burning testimonial that almost matches “Unbreakable” for sheer conviction. Melodies by Eddie Kendricks, The Main Ingredient, and the Isley Brothers are woven into the fabric of the music, and the night concludes with a jam session medley of Brand Nubian’s hip-hop love song “Love It or Leave It Alone” and Damian Marley’s massive roots anthem “Welcome to Jamrock.” For all her intense musical valor, Keys makes sure Unplugged maintains the atmosphere of a Saturday night party.

Customer Reviews

Awesome!!

I absolutely love this cd! I was first introduced to Alicia and her music by skipping through the tv channels and watching this show. The cd is wonderful and a completely different experience than her other cds. While I love her music, I always switch cds and play this one it just has all of her best songs from her past albums and is just so amazing with the backup singers and other instruments playing with her. This cd is powerful just like her music.

Simply Fantastic...

This is the best compilation of music I have ever listened to. I love every single minute, and every single second of this CD. We hear Alicia in a way that weve never before--in a way that only an unplugged and stripped performance could show. This is well worth every last penny you spend. A beautiful album full of all the hits.

Unplugged

I really liked this CD. I enjoyed these versions of the songs, although they should have really been called remixes, and I especially loved the new songs, i.e. Stolen Moments and Unbreakable. Great live CD.
