It’s Different Now By Amy Winehouse

Better Times: Amy Winehouse’s 25 Most Memorable Moments is a compilation of her live shows from the past fifteen years. Winehouse has said that this collection would make an ideal gift for any woman who appreciates her live show and enjoys music. The album features the very best of her many performances, and though it’s a very long list, you can certainly see the performers and songs that you have come to know and love. This is definitely an album worth adding to your own collection of Live Shows.

Better Times Amy Winehouses 25 Most Memorable Moments

Live at the bar: Part one of the Live at the bar collection. Live at the bar showcases the very best of Winehouse, with bonus songs that weren’t included on previous albums. The first three songs on this collection are fantastic, featuring Winehouse on vocals, and backing tracks. Winehouse also has a great tone, which helps her songs shine through. This is a must-listen for any fan of the singer.

One of my all-time favorite songs, Blame It on the King, gets an excellent arrangement in this album. The acoustic guitar is awesome in this song, as is the rhythm. The song is a slower pace than some of Winehouse’s other live shows, but still a nice listen. I especially like how she sings the last line in the verse to the acoustic guitar, then switches back to the electric for the chorus. I also really like how she says, “And now here I am…” in the bridge. A classic moment from one of Amy Winehouse’s most famous songs.

I’ll Never Walk Alone Again: This is another song from the band’s Live at the Bar CD, and another fantastic contribution from Amy Winehouse. This is a great song with great lyrics, sung by one of the best voices in rock. Just like the aforementioned song, I’m pretty sure I’ve heard this version more times than any version of the acoustic guitar version. The lyrics are spectacular, and just a great vibe to the music.

Wasted: The Replacements’ lead singer goes into a rendition of this classic, “Where Have All The Flowers Gone.” This is probably the only song on the album that isn’t played on any other recordings of the band. To me, it sounds great live, but even then, sometimes the recording sounds a bit flat. However, the singer nails it on the acoustic. It’s not a bad song, but just doesn’t live up to its full potential when played live.

Come As You Are: The Replacements’ guitarist puts out a great song with this song. I actually prefer the version with Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers than the one with Vince Neil. However, it’s still a fantastic song. It’s one of those songs where you realize that the band has created an amazing album when you hear it live. They bring out all the stops with this one.

I’m Only Sleeping: There’s not a lot of guitar in this acoustic guitar version of I’m Only Sleeping, but that’s okay. This is one that you might not hear very often on tour. It’s a nice slow song, reminiscent of the Stones. It has a lot of great licks throughout.

It’s an amazing album. Many people compare it to albums by other bands like Pavement or The Jesus Camp. However, Amy Winehouse is one of the most original and influential artists of all time. Her voice is raw and honest, yet still memorable. While It’s Different Now won’t be coming to the stage anytime soon, I would encourage anyone to buy this record because of what it does and because of what Amy Winehouse has achieved since it was first released.
