Corinne Bailey Rae is one of those unexpected interests for me, a pop-chanteuse making the kind of music I typically wouldn’t really find much interest in. But, for some reason, I fell for her simple, emotive voice. My only problem with her eponymous debut album was that it became a playground for her producers, rather than a showcase for her talents. That’s where a live set like this comes in handy, since it allowed her to display her real gift without fear of someone getting creative with beats and other studio trickery. One disc here is a DVD of a London show, the other is a CD of a New York show.
