Ruf Records has released three studio albums from Friend 'n Fellow so far - it was about time for a live recording!
Everyone who has already had the pleasure to see the duo at a concert has been carried away by the perfect live performance. The magic voice of Constanze Friend, the rich guitar grooves of Thomas Fellow - they mediate this live feeling on their DVD now. The songs were recorded in Weimar, Germany in May 2003. Friend 'n Fellow look back to the last years, they sing and play their most beautiful songs. With the term "acoustic soul" they describe themselves the blend of the different musical roots.

These two late-'60s albums were released at the peak of Joe South's commercial success and visibility, coinciding with his hits "Games People Play" (which appears on 1968's Introspect) and "Walk a Mile in My Shoes" (which is on 1969's Don't It Make You Want to Go Home?). This Raven reissue combines both records onto one CD, with the addition of the way-cool psychedelic soul outing "Hole in Your Soul" (from the Games People Play album) as a bonus track.
"Home" was released all over Europe and also in Japan, Korea and Canada during the summer 2001. Later it was also released in Australia. Beady Belle was given "European Priority" by Universal International. After the release of the "Home" album, Beady Belle traveled around the world performing their music (check "Concerts"). Beady Belle has, more or less, been on tour since their first release in 2001.
A definite soul based session for Donald Byrd – and that's saying a lot here, because his previous decade's worth of work had all had some sort of R&B focus. The main force behind the set here is Isaac Hayes – who's producing, arranging, and playing most of the keyboards on the album. Oddly, Ike's not singing at all – and vocals are instead handled by Rose Williams, Diane Davis, Pat Lewis, and Myra Walker – plus the Hot Buttered Soul group on backing vocals.
