Late Orchestration

Hip hop super hero Kanye West has a new release coming out soon not available state side, Late Orchestration: Live at Abbey Road Studios. I was looking for some new interpretations of Kanye classics but alas its pretty much a recreation the album tracks in a live atmosphere. My favorite Kanye West track Gone sounds pretty much the same other than a slight murmur of a fans in the beginning, Kanye West rambling a little in the middle of the track and almost 2 minutes were cut. On other tracks the orchestra adds a little more than was there so their presence is felt. This album is by far not essential, perhaps just for the Kanye West superfans.

Product details via
Import only release! Recorded in front of 300 personally invited guests and fans at Abbey Road Studios (the famous Beatles studio) in the UK on September 21st, 2005. Kanye was backed with a 17-piece all-female string orchestra and featured guest appearances by John Legend and Goldie Lookin' Chain. The CD release features the full perfomance (12-tracks) along with an additional bonus track, 'Gold Digger' (Live at AOL).
