Various Artists - Live At The World Cafe Volume 18: I'll Take You There - World Cafe

The welcoming phrase that serves as the title to the 18th volume in our Live at the World Cafe series puts you the listener in a very good place indeed. As we move to our new World Café studio these songs will always remind us of what will forever be the “old World Cafe.”

This new disc is all about the performances. There are songs on here going back 30 plus years like the Allman Brothers Midnight Rider and Jethro Tull’s Living In the Past that you think you know by heart, but these are fresh new World Cafe performances that are thrilling all over again. I am shocked by the depth of emotion in these performances. Listen to newcomer Joss Stone’s version of the White Stripes tune Fell In Love With A Boy. We are proud that theses performances happened on the World Cafe. Plus a real rarity - live Sting with his full band recorded live during our interview.

The selection is deep and varied and the performances uniformly superb. We again thank all the performers for donating these versions. They truly make the World Cafe possible
