Happy Birthday Lisa Stansfield
Lisa Stansfield opening song was, ''Set Your Loving Free'' for her first UK concert in years which started in Bexhill On Sea East Sussex, England . All though the wet, windy & damp weather outside, you could feel the warmth of her walking on to the stage inside singing, ''Set Your Loving Free''. She had a great 8 piece band & one backing singer with a cool new brassy sound. Most of the hits were featured, '' Change'' with a Latin / salsa ending, ''All Woman'' was done with an acoustic arrangement, ''People Hold On'', ''Someday'', Barry White's ''Never gonna give Ya up,'' ''Time to make You Mine'' plus a new song about killing your husband, where she said she had not killed hers yet!! looking at him on the keyboard. There was a nice kinda Stax sound going around in the horn section, which came through nicely on her new tracks. She liked, Bexhill - She joked, she expected to see, '' Poirot'' on the stage. The encore was ,'' All around the world'' & before you knew it, the one & half hours had flown past. Thank you Lisa & come back again soon.
