Live 97-99 Mood(Raibu Kyū Nana kara Kyū Kyū Mūdo) is Chara's first and currently only live album, marketed as a 'live best album', released on March 8, 2000. It features recordings from her tours Chara Junior Sweet Tour, Chara Strange Fruits the Live, Chara Strange Fruits the Concert and Chara Concert Tour Duce & the Aurora Band. It debuted at #20 on the Japanese Oricon album charts, and charted in the top 200 for 4 weeks. It eventually sold a total of 45,000 copies.
Between 1997 and 1999, Chara performed live venues with her back-up band, the Aurora Band. The band also served as a session band during the recording of her 7th album, Strange Fruits. Their backing is featured on the studio recordings of Hikari to Watashi(光と私,The Light and Me), Duca, Onna no Ko no Heya(女の子の部屋,Girl's Room), Hanashite Tōtoi Sono Mirai no Koto o(話して尊いその未来のことを,Talk About That Precious Future) and Tsutawatte(つたわって,Walking Along). Only Duca and Tsutawatte feature on this live album, however.
The album consists of recordings from six dates from across four different tours, featuring three different venues. The bulk of the album comes from the Chara Concert Tour Duca & the Aurora Band concert at the NHK Hall on 1998.10.22: 8 songs were performed there. A recording of Chisa na Tenohira(小さな手のひら,Little Palms) from the Montage album from this concert date also features on the 70% (Yūgure no Uta)(70%—夕暮れのうた,70% (Evening Song)) single, released over a year prior to this album.
Other recordings of the November 1, 1997 Chara Junior Sweet Tour concert exist. In fact, a VHS of this concert simply titled 1997.11.1 was released, featuring both recordings found on this album, along with 8 others.
