Title - 'Live in Washington D.C.' (Legacy)
Artist - Patti LaBelle

What can you say about Patti Labelle. They throw the title 'Diva' around way too much these day's. That said, Patti LaBelle is truly a DIVA. The CD is wonderful! Indeed, what really gets me is that she sounds the same live as she does recorded in a studio.

This new CD is an expanded edition of Patti's live show recorded at the peak of her powers and showcasing her deeply shared emotional connection with her fans. Featuring the signature songs 'Lady Marmalade', 'What Can I Do For You', 'The Spirit's In It' and 'Isn't It a Shame' as well as her essential rendition of the classic 'If You Don't Know Me By Now' which testifies to the power in the music from the original soul diva, the CD is both alive and passionate.

As for that last noted song though, die hard fans will remember 'If You Don't Know Me By Now' from her '85 Patti LP! Well, don't expect that version here. This is a different version and worth getting the CD for. The vocal and musical arrangements on her classic songs sound much different than how she performs them now. It also contains such rare live gems as 'I Don't Go Shopping' where you hear the beginnings of the three men doing a stage routine beside her!
