    Loved this album and the show in Detroit w/Dead Prez is still one of the greatest concerts I've ever attended. Highlight D'Angelo rocking out on Sh&t, Damn, MF. That was an experience. RIP Jef Lee Johnson, Roy Hargrove and Spanky

    I had no idea back then how much I loved D'Angelo and what i was hearing was that Prince inspired influence. Just love these stories on the birth of an album and what goes into it😍. Makes you want to put some scuba gear on 💜

    James, thx 4 sharing these stories! Much appreciated! Saw you guys on the VooDoo Tour in Hamburg / Germany. We were blessed to open for you (Vanessa Mason & Band) Have to say up to this point, i have never, ever seen a better live show than what you guys have given us on this tour. So many great musicians made the magic happen.Thanks so much. I will never forget it in my life! Much love and be safe!

    Voodoo Tour to this day, the best show i've ever seen! i remember meeting Shelby, Jack and Anthony at a restaurant at the Taj Mahal, Questlove – we kept seeing him on the boardwalk (Atlantic City), met Spanky sometime before the show, kept running into Pino in the hotel.. so many memories.
