    Editorial Review

    Whoopi Goldberg has a lot of talents, but singing is not one of them. Hearing her massacre Motown classics like "Dancing in the Street," "Ball of Confusion" and "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" in her flat, dull voice on this soundtrack album would be harmless if a whole generation weren't being introduced to these songs through her clumsy performances. Several choirs turn in lackluster performances of gospel numbers. The disc's one redeeming moment is Aretha Franklin's overpowering delivery of "A Deeper Love," written and produced by C+C Music Factory. Read more

    Loved the movie, loved the music. I purchased this CD for my 4 year old granddaughter who watched the movie and loved it.She likes to listen to it in the car.

    Amazon.com, Geoffrey Himes must have a tin ear!
    5-0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST SOUNDTRACKS EVER
    Please everybody ignores Amazon's review of this album. I am 16 years old, and I was three years old when this movie and soundtrack came out. And at an early age this entire project(movie and soundtrack) gave me a love of music, which is why I like to sing now and introduced me to quality music and great classics, and not like the mess that we hear today. So for anybody who has contemplated bying this project, listen if everytime you watch the movie, you cant help to sing along with them, them you need to purchase this album. Because it will certainly bless you. ... Read more

    As much as I luv the move I gotta say that the soundtrack is so good! All of the Female Artists on this album really took it to another level. BUY THE ALBUM!

    5-0 out of 5 stars This album assembles some of the greatest talent!
    Babyface has done this album very well. For a writer, producer, and artist in his own right to write songs for women he must do it right and face does on this disc that has cemented his place in history.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Soul Diva's!
    Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan and Patti Labelle on the same CD!? Oh and it don't stop there Whitney Houston, Toni Braxton and Chante Moore. Nope not done gospel legend Cece Winans and the soulful/pop croons of SWV, TLC, Mary J Blige and Brandy! Yes and they all do their thang.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Different Handle on Handel
    This recording was given to me as a Christmas gift, and quickly became one of my all time favorites. I love Handel's Messiah, and consider it one of the all time greatest classical works ever composed for voices and instruments. That said, this contemporary interpretation is also wonderful. It features some of my favorite artists (Stevie Wonder, Take 6, Patti Austin); I especially love Tevin Campbell's "I Know My Redeemer Liveth," which never fails to move me. I not only listen to this music at Christmastime, but whenever I feel the need to be lifted and lightened.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Christmas Album
    I've had this CD since it first came out, have bought and given many copies to friends (some even on cassette tape - remember those?), and play it year round.This is simply my favorite piece of Christmas music and is one of my top 5 favorite CD's of my entire music collection.I play it LOUDLY in the car and at home and have been known to break it down, measure by measure, in order to figure out the arrangements.I've performed the traditional Messiah more times than I can count and love it, yet I am delighted and astounded every time I listen to this fresh, innovative and dynamic piece of music (like I said, year round).Thank you, thank you to all the musicians, artists, engineers and technicians who put this piece together.I agree with a previous reviewer - I think Handel would be so very pleased that his work is standing the test of time.Open your mind and your ears and enjoy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars *HEARTSWILLDANCEFORTHEJOYOFEASTER*
    This recording of Handel's "Messiah" has several cuts of that great work - - Some may stand your hair on end! But remember, the album's sub-title is "A SOULFUL CELEBRATION" - - words that perfectly describe it . . . Many will choose the album for its lively cover art:

    5-0 out of 5 stars great dance music for a party
    i hosted a video party for a group of friends and when it ended everyone wanted to hear some music they could have fun too. being as busy as i was put this cd in to make things easier for me. well everyone was up and dancing and haveing a good time.most of them asked me what cd it was and where i got it.this is a must cd for anyone who is into entertaining whether personal or professional.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Funking good collection.
    This collection basically achieves what it sets out to do, which is be your one-stop funk-shop. It's twenty tracks of roughly funks greatest hits. Sure numerous classics are missing (see Pure Funk 2), but only so much of a genre fits on one disc. One really interesting thing about giving these songs a listen, is that you realize how many of them have been sampled, and pretty much have been the hook of many recent hits in the past 10-20 years. Overall you can't complain about what's here, and again this is a perfect set for the person who really just wants one disc of "Pure Funk". It's fro-tastic. ... Read more

    what song was darius and nina dancing to when they went to the wild hare reggae club up on the north side??? i really love that song

    4-0 out of 5 stars Jonesing
    Love Jones soundtrack begins and concludes with dialect taken from the actual movie and in-between you'll find R&B and jazz tunes to make the mood.Dionne Farris leads off first with a goodbye on "Hopeless".Aside from her verbal skills, Lauryn Hill shows her vocal skills on "The Sweetest Thing".Another spin-off from the Refugee Camp is Melky and Day with their rendition of "I Got A Love Jones For You".Maxwell actually takes this soundtrack to another level with seductive lyrics and sexuality on "Sumthin' Sumthin': Mellosmoothe (Cut)"."Never Enough" is a good addition by Groove Theory."Inside My Love" has everything necessary to be a good song, production by Jermaine Dupri, lyrics and vocals by Trina Broussard.The fist jazz tune on this album, "You Move Me" by Cassandra Wilson, is a quiet tune where the bass awaken you with a subtle tone.Speaking of a bass, Marcus Miller & Me'shell Ndegeocello collaborated with a funk guitar lick and jazz chords for "Rush Over".Speeding it up a bit, Kenny Lattimore adds another dimension to a Love Jones on the smooth, up-tempo "Can't Get Enough"."Jelly, Jelly" has a more classic jazz feel with the vocals by The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra.Falling into the mood provided by Duke Ellington & John Coltrane this instrumental is supposed to be enjoyed in a relaxed mode on "In A Sentimental Mood".This is a good compilation of exceptional R&B and jazz tunes fit for a more adult audience. ...

    Editorial Review

    Motown did so many things well in the '60s and early '70s that this overview of the label's smashes (and some lesser-known classics) practically demands four CDs. It gets them, too, filling them with single mixes of more than 100 tracks. That the running order begins with Barrett Strong's statement of purpose "Money (That's What I Want)" and ends with Marvin Gaye's statement of concern "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)" says a lot about how far the company moved in its golden decade--but no more so than what the same two cuts' differences in sound get across. The company was able to blend the smooth and the harsh in ways that few other pop entities have ever mastered, thereby getting over not only to the feet and the wallet, but to the heart. Read more

    There are so many good songs here, you can't go wrong. Don't let the whole 'mono' thing scare you away, either. With a decent stereo, these sound just fine. Just turn up the bass a little and crank it loud. I like about 80% of the songs in this collection, and for the price you can't go wrong; Nice booklet w/ lots of cool pictures included. With this collection, you'd only need to buy a handful of other discs to complete your Motown collection...

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is the Motown sound!
    What is Motown all about? The answer lies within the music of this rather impressive line-up of songs on "Hitsville USA: The Motown Singles Collection 1959-1971." It's the story of how a gifted songwriter, Berry Gordy, Jr., makes his way on up the ladder of success spearheading one of if not the most successful
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Classic Sound Of Motown
    A well-assembled box set containing just some of Motown's most golden and definitive classics. Nobody knew Motown Records was going to take off in the way it did. Berry Gordy intended to use his artists to break down the then racial barriers, intending to encapsulate a golden and distinct sound that would not only please a black audience but would too appeal to whites. Berry Gordys visions for the company paid off. Key artists like Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson and Stevie Wonder attracted a huge following from both blacks and whites.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Delfonics were bad!
    I remember being able to hit all the high notes you'll hear on this excellent compilation of lush Philly Soul. If I try it now, I'm off work for three days. When I first heard "He Don't Really Love You" (not included here) I was like, "WHO IS THIS?????" By the time they hit with "You've Been Untrue" (also not included), I knew they were a regional group bound for the big-time. Enter La-La (Means I Love You) and the rest is....well you know.... Anyway, I'm proud to own this disc, and like a dream come true, the 4th disc on the nostalgia inducing Cameo-Parkway 1957 - 1967 Box Set contains both of those pre-breakout tunes I've mentioned. The Delfonics? When you get right down to it, these guys were bad!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars A good start..., and didn't War sing...."where was you at"....!?
    Rhythm & blues music listeners were not necessarily Doo-Wop listeners, who did not necessarily move to the new sound of the sixties, Motown etc., and those not necessarily to the sweet soul sound of the early 70s, or on to the disco sound of the later 70s and on.........Point being, music has always had a tendency of impacting (especially teenagers) the listener as tied in to the era released.That does not mean old school music cannot be enjoyed by non era listeners, good music, as Lou Rawls so eloquently put it.... "will last forever" but, as an example if the question is raised "where was you at" when you first heard the 45 "My New Love" by the Delfonics (so often played on urban radio stations in '68 (also on the "Sounds Of Sexy Soul" lp) and an overlooked song on "hits" cds (do the cd song compilers even know?), what is one's reply?Beginning with their debut single, 1966 "He Don't Really Love You" on the obscure "Moon Shot" record label, followed in 1967 by the 45 "You've Been Untrue"- Cameo-Parkway label, through the last album release in 1974 on Philly Groove Records, the Delfonics music has been sought by those who know and love, "East Coast Sweet Soul" and the Philly Sound". It is a type of music!The writer is taken aback when reading, "This stuff can transcend it's own schmaltz"?"Stuff"?Whoa-a!This is music of an era, late 60s - mid 70s."Where was we at...., when these songs and albums were released?Fifties "Doo-Wop" or 90s "House" music may be far from everyone's taste but, for those impacted by the music of, at the time, just as relevant to them as the various types and era of music listened to and enjoyed by others, are to them.I personally find it difficult to believe a truly insightful review can be written about music unless the writer was "there" during the era of release.An era has it's own "feel".For those who liked/loved the music of the Delfonics, this compilation is a good start, it has 20 songs on it.The reason the Delfonics albums have long since been chased collectible albums is because the songs not on the few, "hits" cds are harbored there, "My New Love", "For The Love I Gave To You", etc., etc., etc., not on the "hits" releases.Recently, all their albums except "Tell Me This Is A Dream"-1972, have been reissued, finally!With "La La Means I Love You"-1967, "The Sounds Of Sexy Soul"-1968, "The Delfonics"-1970, "Alive & Kicking-1974", and the unreleased (in 1976) lp "The Professionals", released on cd, the music of the Delfonics (minus their first 2 releases, the two 45s) is now availible to all, at digital sound quality!This cd, loaded with sweet soul classics but, not all!The album reissues contain more!The Delfonics, it's Buy Time!

    Editorial Review

    If you've never seen kids harmonizing on a street corner you didn't grow up in any major city in the 1950s. The music was pure, the lyrics understandable, and the theme was love--unrequited, lost, and found. Where classic doo-wop is concerned, the leader usually boasted the best voice, but his or her supporting cast was of equal importance when it came to vocalizing the likes of "Blue Moon," "I Wonder Why," "Barbara-Ann" and "Get a Job," performed here by the Marcels, the Regents, and Dion & the Belmonts, respectively. Also included among the 20 artists featured on this hit-laden 22-song primer are Frankie Lymon & the Teenagers ("Why Do Fools Fall in Love?"), the Monotones ("Get a Job"), and the Flamingos ("I Only Have Eyes for You"). Decades after these songs filled the airwaves, they still elicit memories and a desire to sing along--in the background, of course. Read more

    Editorial Review

    Where so many duet projects seem like shotgun marriages, this one sounds like a labor of love, celebrating Southern music as a common denominator that transcends racial and categorical divides. Among the highlights, the pairing of Lyle Lovett and Al Green finds revelation within the funky groove of "Funny How Time Slips Away," while the album-closing "Patches"--with George Jones playing father to B.B. King's son--achieves a spine-tingling majesty. Though Natalie Cole and Reba McEntire misconnect on "Since I Fell for You," Sam Moore (of Sam & Dave) and the late Conway Twitty are at their soulful best on "Rainy Night in Georgia." Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!
    A friend loaned me a copy of this CD last week and I've been frantically searching for the name of it ever since so that I could buy my own copy and one for my folks.I'm glad I finally located it.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Natural High for "Cover" Junkies
    I recently rediscovered this musical gem (on CD), and now I know why I wore out two cassette versions in the 1990s. As someone who doesn't often listen to songs recorded after 1979, I've become addicted to new twists on old favorites. When these voices combine, the angels weep. RCB is among my top five faves of all time!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Street Jams: Electric Funk, Vol. 1
    I grew up on this stuff even though I'm only 16. All the songs blended hip-hip with techno. All the beats seem unique and exotic. They are all something that you don't hear in today's rap/hip-hop unless they use the beat. Missy Elliott got her "Lose Control" beat from the song "Clear" off this cd. This cd includes the mega hit "Planet Rock" by Afrika Bambaataa & the Soulsonic Force. Every song here is great and major part of rap/hip-hop history and culture but here are my top 5:
    5-0 out of 5 stars As Good As Music Gets!
    Many of the sounds on this CD are about as good as rap/hip hop/electronic funk gets.Planet Rock is close to musical perfection in my opinion.How I wish the hip hop scene of today would return to its musical roots.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Essential for fans
    I can't praise this 4 cd set enough.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Boomerang is still #1
    This is my message to everyone who does not own Boomerang the Soundtrack or the movie; PLEASE GO AND PURCHASE THEM. This movie is a classic and the CD. The funniest song is by Grace Jones, she makes me laugh like crazy, but her lyrics go along with the movie itself. Listen to "Reversal of a Dog", which talks about how Eddie Murphy was dogged out or what is called reversal of another dog whom is Robin Givens. The most romantic songs are by Johnny Gill called "There U Go" and by Keith Washington called "Tonight is Right". This is just some beautiful music! I had both the movie and the soundtrack on what we consider modern day recording VHS and cassette tape. I replaced them with DVD and CD. You know the strangest thing that I realized with the movie itself is the fact that the way they dressed back then or for that particular movie is kind of how some of us still dress for our corporate jobs or to go out on a date in 2006. Some folks are still rockin' Halle Berry's signature haircut, sporting the Robin Givens type hairstyle or hair weave, the tailored fitted business suits. Funny! Enjoy that movie and its CD, they are must haves for your your collection. Can you believe that Boomerang came out in 1992, wow that was about 14 years ago. Amazing!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Grace Jones at her best, vocally.
    This soundtrack is somewhat mediocre. Most of the songs are typical r'n'b cuts, but unfortunately, the album overall fails. Toni Braxton wasn't a star yet, Boys II Men hit it big time with "End of the Road" and Grace Jones' "7 Day Weekend" remains the highlight of the entire album. Most of the songs are boring, except Braxton's and Jones' tracks there really isn't much to shout hooray for. Mediocre at best.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Sticking to the Script!!!
    This was the era of conceptual soundtracks. Once you hear the selections you instantly remember the movie itself.The music and songwriting is so infectious, due to the combination of great artist such as Babyface, Toni, Keith Washington, BoyzIIMen, and sticking to the emotions of the script.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Controversial second effort from the Pure Funk series
    The second and more controversial disc in the Pure Funk series, Pure Funk Vol. 2 contains many Funk band and Funk artist's slightly lesser known hits plus a few from groups not immediately recognizable as masters of Funk. The songs are a bit slower in tempo and might be a better album to play at the end of the night when the party is winding down -- not when you want to crank things up.
    5-0 out of 5 stars I know what I like
    A lot of the other reviewers have blasted this CD because it is not a true funk compilation.Well, maybe so.I don't know.I'm not a connoisseur of the art form.All I know is that I enjoyed the hell out of these songs (with the exception of Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust," which I could happily live the rest of my life without hearing again).I was exclusively into metal when these songs came around the first time, so it's a pleasure to be exposed to so many great pop songs that I was only dimly aware of, if I had heard them at all.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Soft and commercial
    Seems like they sold too many of the first volume, and have produced a second just to try to rake in a little more. Hardly any of the tracks on this album are funk, and as for Queen being the opener... it speaks for itself. To me, funk is typified by an active bass line, compelling beat and sharp guitar or brass; any or all of these are lacking on most of the tracks here. What you get instead is a collection of slothful, disparate songs, hardly conducive to dancing. Save your money. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Another one of those "ya had to have been there" albums!
    Though the movie from whence comes the music on the album is a classic in its own right, the soundtrack is more a time capsule of what we listened to and danced to in 1991.Most of the artists/groups found on the release have either moved on to bigger and better things (Ice-T, Gerald Levert, and multi-talented Queen Latifah), are still recording with lesser success (Johnny Gill with "New Edition" and Keith Sweat), or have faded into relative obscurity (Color Me Badd, Troop, Guy, and 2 Live Crew).
    3-0 out of 5 stars H-U-S-T-L-E-Rhustler.
    This is a soundtrack I've had for years but really rarely play. The truth is it's pretty good all the way through, but only 3-4 tracks stand-out to me. Obviously the Ice-T "New Jack Hustler (Nino's Theme)" is awesome, and was kind of the unofficial theme of the movie. "I Wanna Sex You Up" by Color Me Badd may seem cheesy now, but was huge at the time, and I actually still like it. Then there's "For The Love Of Money/Living For The City" with that unmistakeable opening, a good track for the film and greed in general. The rest is a mix of R&B/Soul and light rap, all decent, but nothing too amazing. Overall I guess this serves as a good time-capsule for 1991 if nothing else, in the genres anyway. Well worth the 94 cents it's currently going for used.

    5-0 out of 5 stars New Jack City is still going on?
    New Jack City is one of the movies that really made me realize what was going on out there in the streets. Another reality is that these things are still going on today as I am typing this review. There will always be a Nino Brown with a fly girlfriend on his side. All of this is simply life period and what more can I say besides the movie is great. I look at all the people who are now older and doing their thing. We really don't see Wesly Snipes like we used to. Ice T is doing his thing with "Law & Order", Vanessa Williams has finished her work on the "Soul Food Series", Christopher Williams is missing in action for whatever reason, but he is still a nice looking man, Allen Payne was really good in "Blue Hill", Michael Michelle is doing her thing. The movie has really shined the light on life in America along with how neighborhoods do in fact change. There will always be the "Pookies" too. Great movie, outstanding cast and script. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars oldschool must have
    If you came up in the mid 80's, I mean like in high school or something like that then you will know what I am talking about.This album and the series bring back so many memories.It was when rap was "happy" and the beats are what you paid attention to and you could actually rap the whole song with the MC.These tracks are oldschool and most younger people won't get the lyric's or beats.If you are over thirty then you have to get these and if you are younger you might learn some history.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Beginnings of Hip Hop
    A previous poster mad a really cruel review about this compilation series, and I've figured him all out. This individual is basically going on Amazon, and sampling soundbytes of certain albums, and just criticizing them just because he can. If you don't believe me, just check this person's listing of reviews. Every review is a "1 Star" Review, from Nine Inch Nails to The Killers. Please disregard his review, and listen to someone who actually "buys" and "listens" to music, and who was actually there during the beginnings of hip-hop. Many of these songs are still played at house parties, on mixshows, tv shows, and movies. The cool thing is that many jams of this era's hip hop was very lighthearted, fun, non-violent, and even downright silly, BUT they got the butts on the dancefloor, and that's what has been missing in hip hop and rap. This whole series I would recommend to anyone who is interested in historical origins of genres and sub-genres, or just want to relive a more innocent time. But like those kids on Reading Rainbow would say, "Don't Take MY Word For It"

    I had been searching high and low for a compilation of what some may consider "sappy love songs." Well, if you happen to love so-called "sappy love songs," as I do, then you've found a great CD! Almost all of the songs on this CD are great and received endless airplay in their day. My favorite selections are the duets - many of which are either no longer available on a regular CD or just were released as singles.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The First of the Series
    When I purchased this one I was happy to find that there were more to follow. I am not that old but this music takes you back to the times when music was music. I love these songs and I love listening to them over and over again. I bought this CD because of Double Dutch Bus and Square Bizz, but I like all the tracks now. A great buy and I highly recommend it.

    Listening to these songs reminds me of the days when music was enjoyable and fun to listen and dance to.Most of the music on the charts detail lewd sex and violence.Some of the artists even have no bones about being arrested and having criminal records.It's a shame we don't shun some of the conduct that is portrayed in their lyrics. ...
