Product Description


Sade fans may experience a range of emotions while watching the first-rate Lovers Live, but one thing they won't feel is shortchanged--not with nearly two hours of concert footage, 22 songs (including almost all of her Lovers Rock album), and DVD bonus features galore. That sultry, soulful Sade sound is in full effect throughout the concert (filmed at two Southern California locations in 2001), brought to life by a capable band, some superbly evocative visuals and sound effects, and, of course, the singer herself. The show is dramatic, but never overly theatrical; best of all, Sade, while perhaps not the world's greatest performer, is an adult--you'll find no pop-princess posing here. Of the nine songs from Lovers Rock, "Slave Song" and "Immigrant" are especially moving, revealing that Sade added some new flavors to her sound during her protracted layoff from performing. This show is pure Sade--and that's a good thing. --Sam Graham

Special Features

The DVD menu, while well designed, is frustratingly slow. If you have the patience, you'll find some largely extraneous backstage footage of Sade and her band, a nice gallery of black-and-white photos, the excellent "King of Sorrow" video, and "Message to Sade," essentially 10 minutes of adoring fans offering homages and confessions of love to their heroine. --Sam Graham

I am so glad I bought this DVD. Of my DVD collection, I place Sade right up there with Patti Labelle's "One Night Only" DVD (in which I also highly recommend). Sade's performance is simply outstanding, perhaps the best I've ever seen. She never misses a beat. And her band is equally as great.
So if you love R&B and jazz, then this DVD is a must for your collection. And if you like Sade, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Sade is as enchanting as ever in this excellent follow-up to the first concert DVD ("Sade Live"). This performance, which was filmed in September of 2001 at two SoCal venues, proves that after eight years, the attraction of Sade herself is just as strong as her music.
At just under two hours, you get a comprehensive show: 22 songs, with ten from the latest "Lovers Rock" CD. The remaining twelve are all favorite hits from Sade's previous four albums. Sound-wise, everything sounds great, and you can select from either stereo or 5.1 Surround Sound to suit your tastes. The band plays really tight, and there are some nice surprises, such as a cool intro to "Sweetest Taboo" and a funky/rock version of "Paradise" (check out the choreography).
Visually, you see lots of Sade (a good thing), yet the camera time spent on her and the rest of the band is fairly balanced. I loved the editing since I was watching what I wanted to see pretty much most of the time. The lighting for this tour is somewhat more interesting than the last, and the use of the video screen in back of the stage adds some pizzazz, especially the film of water dropping in synch with key accented beats in "Somebody Already Broke My Heart." The camera work and editing are superb. Even the credit track is awesome, with some really touching footage of the audience.
DVD Extras: 1) behind-the-scenes video (pretty funny) of the band members dancing and mugging for the camera; 2) Sade, behind-the-scenes; 3) concertgoers' "messages to Sade"; and 4) excellent "King of Sorrow" video, directed by Sophie Muller and filmed in Puerto Rico.

The music of Sade deserves nothing less than 5 stars. Those who are looking for a great collection of Sade's music need look no further.
As a DVD however, this disc leaves a little to be desired. First of all the concert was captured on film, which gives a nice cinematic feel... but this is not cinema, and ironically the choice to record the concert on film fails to capture the the immediacy and connection that an audience gets at a live performance. Colors are softer, and images are not as vibrant. High Def video would have been a better choice here.
The 5.1 mix of the audio is also fairly bland, being not far removed from the 2.0 stereo mix. The tracks lack a certain clarity and crispness that DVD is capable of.
The performance is, of course, spectacular, and it's a shame that it's transfer to DVD didn't see more care. The footage doesn't quite match up to the dramatic image on the front cover. I will "cherish the day" that a DVD will be produced worthy showcasing of Sade's breathtaking voice.

This DVD is superb. Sade is enchanting in every sense of the word: sexy, sultry, with a voice that will make you melt. The grooves backing her up are a perfect match, one made in heaven without a doubt. I received this as a gift because I had been wanting for so long to have some Sade in my life, and this really blew me away. Better than buying the audio CD version of this same concert and even a better investment (if a perfect complement) of Sade's "Lover's Rock" album, this DVD is magic. My favorite performances, all delivered with great joy and passion, are: Cherish The Day, Your Love Is King, Somebody Already Broke My Heart, Cherry Pie, Smooth Operator, Jezebel, Kiss Of Life, Sweetest Taboo, Lovers Rock, King Of Sorry, No Ordinary Love and By Your Side. Sade sing and dances hear rear-end off in some of these performances, and it's a pure joy to watch. If you like Sade, I recommend this with my eyes closed... if not, check it out, you might be surprised what a great performer she is! I adore the direction she's going in, more influenced by electronica, a bit ala Everything But The Girl. Amazing!

What can I say about Sade that you haven't already heard? Nothing. You know her band is as tight as they come; you know her lyrics are thought provoking and insightful; you know her beauty is etheral and angelic; you know her concerts are treasures to be savored over and over.
What you may not know is that "Lovers Live" is a must-buy DVD. Don't feel that because you own the DVD of her earlier tour that this DVD is superflous. It's not. There are many songs on this collection that were not included in the first. Also, of the songs that are repeated on "Lovers Live", the arrangements are changed enough to make this listen a new experience. Even "Red Eye" received a significant updating.
The best thing about watching a Sade concert is her command of the audience. Sade is a true beauty, but she doesn't flaunt her assets like so many other female singers. There are no bootylicious aspirations, thong-exposing outfits, acrobatic dance moves, or salacious lyrics. Simply a beautiful, talented woman doing what she does best: mesmerizing an audience for two hours!
