View Full Version : Common's "Electric Circus" bonus?

I've been looking for a link to this for a long time or even YouTube clips but no success so far. I got the album but my copy didn't come with the DVD as seen on the discogs page here: http://www.discogs.com/Common-Electric-Circus/release/2096663

i'm mainly interested in the "Electric Circus studio sessions footage" since I've been reading as much as i can find about those sessions and as it's obvious from listening to the album they must've been wild and very creative. Dilla, ?uestlove and James Poyser (plus D'Angelo before his breakdown) was one of the illest production teams as the Soulquarian's imo. "Things Fall Apart", "Voodoo", "Mama's Gun" and "Like Water For Chocolate" are all some of the absolute finest albums of '99/2000 and "Electric Circus" was really nice too, very underrated LP although more people appreciate it now than when it first came out.

so if anyone has a link to this DVD please hook me up, or if you seen it, tell me a little about the footage and if it's worth trying to track down. I think there was one for "Be" too, right? I would be interested in that one as well.

Thanks for making me aware of it, I never knew there was a DVD.

I remember putting that album to the side when I first bought it, Common's style of music was too far out for my taste at the time but I've learned to appreciate it's good moments over time as my appreciation of music has grown.

^ thanks, I must say i don't want to buy this a second time unless i know that the extra material are really something special though. i experienced the same thing with the album, besides a few songs like "Soul Power" I thought it was too out there for the most part but it grew alot on me as my interest in musical fields like soul, jazz and phsycadelic and progressive rock has expanded. there's still some moments that comes off as cheesy or that Com's not quite able to pull off (e.g. the instrumentation and Badu makes "Jimi Was A Rock Star" a pretty cool experience that I play out every now and then when I bump the album, but Com's singing sound forced and brings the overall song down to me).
