Diamond in the Mind: Live 2011, was filmed at the MEN Arena in Manchester, England on December 16, and features a set list that's heavy on the classics, yet respectful of the band's well-received, Mick Ronson-produced All You Need Is Now. A winning blend of style and substance, it's remarkable how well Duran Duran have aged since their '80s heyday. The band tears through ancient (by pop culture standards) radio staples such as "The Reflex" and "Hungry Like the Wolf" with the same enthusiasm that they afford more recent offerings like "Girl Panic" and "Before the Rain," teasing the audience with a rowdy mash-up of 1984's "Wild Boys" and Frankie Goes to Hollywood's "Relax" before sealing the deal with a seven-and-a-half-minute version of "Rio."

Runtime: 68:26 min | Label: World Village USA | Release date: October 14, 2003

Throwing an enormous Woodstock-style music festival in the middle of the Sahara desert–the gorgeous photos included in the booklet to Festival in the Desert make clear–isn't exactly easy. Held during the last three years in the shifting sands of northern Mali, the Festival in the Desert has brought together a mix of desert nomads and pop stars to play sublimely enchanting music in some of the harshest but most starkly beautiful conditions imaginable. Luckily for us, the 2003 Festival produced this impressive and varied CD, mixing together tracks from Malian superstars like Oumou Sangare and Ali Farka Toure with lesser knowns like the Mauritanian singer Aicha Bint Chinghaly and the desert nomads Tinariwen, who a few years ago traded their rifles in for electric guitars when the civil war in northern Mali abated. The biggest name here, of course, is Robert Plant, who turns in a wailing medley of old blues tunes…

The album was produced by Louis Newman. It opens with the sultry title cut, "Once Upon a Time in the West," which features her crisp and crystalline voice. It is followed by the sassy and mid-tempo "Blue Flame" and the bluesy ballad "Cadillac." "Wing and a Feather" features the gorgeous harmonies of country darling Ashley Monroe. "Love Birds" has a stirring melody to it, and it continues with the spitfire "Ain't All That Bad." Sebastian's vocals are poetic and heavenly on "Cry to Jackson," where the listener can recall veteran country star Pam Tillis. Equally impressive is the acoustic ballad "Losers and Lashes," which is pure country. Her single "Quicksand" is another gem, as Digital Journal reported.
