Live/Rare/Mixed is exactly what it says it is: a collection of live tracks, B-sides, and an unreleased track ("The Answer") by smooth British soul singer Lisa Stansfield. The live tracks "Tenderly" and the medley of "Live Together/Young Hearts Run Free" are taken from a 1992 show at Wembley. The mixes are by Massive Attack, Driza Bone, and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and do a nice job of funking up Stansfield's often reserved style. The rest of the disc is made up of B-sides. This is a nice collection for Stansfield fanatics but not too essential for anyone with a casual interest.
