Album of the Day
Live By Request
Born Kathryn Dawn Lang in Alberta, Canada, k.d.lang has long combined torch and twang in her music, and both sides are heard to terrific effect on LIVE BY REQUEST. Made as part of A&E TV's performance series of the same name, the singer-songwriter's first concert release plays like a greatest hits collection, with such signature songs as “Crying,” “Miss Chatelaine” and “Constant Craving” joining 11 more fan favorites. Well recorded (at New York City's John Jay College of Criminal Justice), the album is a perfect showcase for one of adult contemporary's greatest voices. Released 20 years ago this month, k.d. lang's LIVE BY REQUEST was among A&E's highest-rated specials, and you'll rate this spellbinding set highly as well.
