Common – Live Electric Circus 2003 – Munich, Germany (FULL PRO SHOT VIDEO)

Someone asked me to post this. So here we have another Common post. This one is from his 2003 tour in support of the experimental and mostly J Dilla produced Electric Circus album. Honestly my favorite Common album. This is a pro shot video taken from an unknown generation VHS tape but upgraded with the circulating SBD audio (not sure if the audio is sourced from the German TV broadcast or FM or what, but it sounds better than the VHS audio did).

This is a great show with a great band featuring Karriem Riggins on drums. (BTW, he just dropped a mixtape, Karriem Riggins Produced That, in anticipation of his upcoming full length album). Anyway, the full video is on youtube in 4 parts below. Plus I have uploaded the DVD as a torrent here.
