I hope one day some official footage of the brazil concerts will be released - like how almost a year after Amy's last public appearence with dionne was released in official footage. If not, I'm sure the brazil concert audio could be remastered professionally? somehow

at his side and drunk on pride
we wait for the blow

I really hope they recorded it, but I'm skeptical because by that point I bet they weren't expecting anything fantastic from Amy. But those performances were amazing and all the videos of her singing Boulevard of Broken Dreams over the few days of shows could probably be polished up a bit. That was my favorite of her covers.

And maybe "(Free) Nelson Mandela" cover recorded live could be included as well? As a part of the story.

Amy also covered Lullaby of Birdland and Caravan at the Fred Perry gig in 2010. There's a review of her Jazz Cafe gig back in 2004 mentioning her version of Caravan and What A Difference A Day Makes. At the Montreal Jazz Festival 2004 she did Stevie Wonder's When Autumn Comes Around.

Salaam has said she recorded He Ain't Heavy by Donny Hathaway once. Also, she sang We're Still Friends at some other gigs, as a 'keyboard acoustic ' version at the Union Chapel in 2006, so it's not only the Zenith one. Same for I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know (there's an amateur footage on YouTube).

She also did Girl From Ipanema live in some occasions, and as mentioned by Mitch, Alanis Morrisette's Ironic.

So, there are LOTS more. Those ones are just the ones I can remember right now. If I check my files, I'll probably find many titles more. They definetely should release all these ones, and also the ones they haven't divulged yet.

Great! I hope they release them all. I want to hear everything she recorded or performed live.
I’m a firm believer that we all meet up in eternity

My Boy Lollipop as well - rumoured to have been recorded. I wish that were true.

He still stands in spite of what his Mars bar says.

Well, Mitch listed Amy's fav songs on heat radio - she used to sing them very often so maybe there are some recordings?
http://i.mixcloud.com/CBabq9

Imagin those by Amy:
> "I try" (Macy Gray's)
>> "Red" by Daniel Merriweather
>>> "So Far Away" (Carole King's)
>> "Empire State of Mind" (Alicia Key's)
> "I Can Never Go Home Anymore" (Shangri-Las)
>> "Killing Me Softly" (The Fugees)
>>> "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" (The Platters)
>> "Lil Star" by Kelis
> "Can't Hurry Love" (The Supremes)
>> "Could You Be Loved" by Marley
>>> "Midnight Train to Georgia" by Gladys Knight
>> "She Said" by Plan B
> "Ironic" by Alanis
"You've Got the Love" by Florence

And probably there are some recordings of Amy singing covers with Dionne from "Introducing Dionne B." sessions. Must be somethin' if Amy visited her lil girl in the studio.

Wow... she painted her room black?!

I'm just listening to Mitch playing Amy's favourite songs on the link you posted [MENTION=2467]ancre[/MENTION]. At one stage he mentions AMD and how there is an application on the heat radio website where you can look at the photos from the book, and they are commented by Mitch, and he even says there are more photos than in the book...
I can't access whatever application he's talking about, anyone know how I can find it?

well of course it's only available in the UK, because I don't live there anymore...

Furthermore I don't own an iphone. Must one be in possession of said device to have access to such applications?

Double loser.

I find it hard to believe Amy liked some of those songs, lol... I don't know, I'd expect that list to be a lot different.
