Love Deluxe

February, 13 2016 | Venkman's

Welcome to our Valentine’s Day Eve retelling of Love Deluxe, Sade’s fourth studio album. Released in 1992 on Epic records, Love Deluxe features a unique blend of jazz, world, soul, downtempo and R&B. Though the album wasn’t the commercial success of Sade’s debut release, Diamond Life, “No Ordinary Love,” “Kiss of Life” and “Feel no Pain” have endured as classics. Love Deluxe does mark a return to the icy vocal sound and jazz-leaning arrangements of the debut, but the sound has evolved here into something more sophisticated, more “urbane,” as critics have called it. The cover photograph was taken by Albert Watson, one of the finest high art, fashion photographers. It’s a striking image that sets the love vibe before even the first notes sound. So sit back and enjoy the smooth sounds of Sade.
