If there was an award for most times an artist has appeared on an internal FADER office wish list to do something (anything), D’Angelo would definitely win it. Pretty much every other year, it seems like we might be getting something new from the dude, and then it doesn’t happen and our hopes are dashed and we get really cynical about music and longevity for about a week. But there’s hope again! D’Angelo is making live appearances and maybe possibly hopefully might be releasing a new album this year. To celebrate (or maybe just because why not?), Okayplayer and Sam Champ cobbled together a mix of good quality live D’Angelo material from over the years. It’s not new, but it’s full of classics, and that is more than fine with us.
