Full Show Friday: De La Soul Live In Belgium 1997

Last year we searched the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and posted them to the site monthly.  That was all well and good but this year RtBE is upping the ante with a show every week to celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...De La Soul! 
Not sure about a lot of things with this video, but it seems like it was a TV taping (with retarded video effects thrown in) of a De La Soul show from their 1997 tour behind Stakes Is High. I am pretty sure that we caught the band on this same tour when they played NYU. We love the group and that album but honestly that was the last one we were really into from De La. We made need to go back and check out AOI and the like but for now enjoy some club bumping hip hop from some of Long Islands finest.

Watching of the video itself may not be needed because of the dumb effects but listening to the tunes is great on this Friday. We particularly dig the move from "Me Myself and I" into "Ego Trippin' (Part Two)" into "Oodles of O's" that is a fun segue section of some of their best jams.

Here is the show, Enjoy:
