I had the DVD of that floating around somewhere - I remember Ben Harper's performances of Ain't Too Proud To Beg and I Heard It Through The Grapevine had more soul and enthusiasm than I've heard in his recordings/performances for some time. He was bang on the money for those 2 numbers.

Still can't get used to Joan Osbourne as a "soul singer". It's not like it's as awful as the Human Nature "tribute" drivel, but when she was out as a part of the Motown 50 tour last year, I just wasn't feeling it. Barnesy and his daughter showed more soul that night, from where I was sitting.
