||DYMAMIC DUO OF 80'S DANCE FLOOR MUSIC|
Having all of Zapp and Roger's music would be just the lick, but this compilation is nice. I had it once before and always jammed it in a multi-cd player along with other artists, mostly at parties or get-togethers.

||Do it! Do it, Roger, do it!|
This is the kind of CD that you can pop in at a party (assuming your people can enjoy some old-school flavor like Zapp and Roger) and it does the rest.

All the Greatest Hits album for sale (saxophone, keyboards, vocals); Abdul Raoof (trumpet, flugelhorn,
percussion); Jason "T.C." Bryant (keyboards, vocals); John Alexander
Simpson (bass, vocals); James Earl Jones III (drums, vocals); Jerome "JT"
All songs written by James Harris III and Terry Lewis except "Take Your Time (Do It Right)" (Harold Clayton/Sigidi) and "What's Wrong With Our Love Affair?" (Jason Bryant).
Like all greatest-hits or best-of compilations, this one is missing some key ingredients, namely "S.O.S. (Dit Dit Dit Dat Dat Dat Dit Dit Dit)" and "Just the Way You Like It." Since the band didn't record tons of material and was only active a short time, the omissions are hard to fathom. It's not like they didn't have room on the CD; only ten songs are compiled here. Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis are well represented with eight songs. Despite the omissions, this is still good listening. Mary Davis' vocals are irresistible; she can do it all. On "Take Your Time (Do It Right)," she shows her funk side, matching the driving, disco-like beat with some powerful vocals. On "Tell Me if You Still Care," she sings in a softer voice, similar to a Smokey Robinson production for Mary Wells. She sings "Just Be Good to Me" with so much conviction that you believe she wrote it. ~ Andrew Hamilton

Greatest Hits CD (2004) Top Seller
All the Greatest Hits buy CD music Representative of the transition between late-1970s funk and the smooth R&B that came to dominate '80s pop radio, Frankie Beverly's Maze is rightfully recognized as an important band in the genre. This 2004 compilation brings together 18 of Maze's finest moments, ranging from 1979's bass-popping jam "Workin' Together" to the silky, Quiet Storm vibe of 1993's "The Morning After." In between is more than a decade's worth of accessible soul, including lock-step funk ("Running Away"), slow-pulse love balladry ("Never Let You Down"), and lounge-ready mid-tempo grooves ("We Are One").
Leader, songwriter, and singer Frankie Beverly is the focus here, and his smooth-as-butter croon, complete with emotive R&B embellishments, shines throughout. Though influenced by such '70s acts as Funkadelic, Smokey Robinson, and Marvin Gaye (Gaye, incidentally, helped Maze get its professional start), the music of Beverly and company is undeniably '80s, dominated by synthesizer, polished production, and a post-disco dance sensibility (as on the strong cut "Back in Stride"). The two live tracks--the audience-participation number "Joy & Pain," and "Happy Feelin's," the band's signature tune--are a bonus to this definitive greatest-hits package.

12 Play CD (1993) Top Seller
All the Greatest Hits songs Raised in the projects of Chicago's South Side, the young R. Kelly displayed an uncanny natural aptitude for the piano, and cut his teeth as a performer by playing a portable electric keyboard and singing with his homies out on the mean streets of the Windy City. The sounds of gospel music and the great romantic balladeers suffuse R. Kelly's work, and on 12 PLAY, his libidinous follow-up to BORN INTO THE 90'S, this gifted singer, arranger and multi-instrumentalist draws upon all his formative experiences to create a sensual, evolutionary style of contemporary R&B.
Evolutionary in that Kelly's a classic heart-throb (with virtuoso chops the likes of Freddie Jackson and Luther Vandross) who walks that historical line between the sacred and secular streams of black music. By overlaying a street-smart contemporary sensibility, with a gangsta-style image and discrete hip hop punctuations, Kelly has transformed R&B into a music that can hold its own on the charts with today's rhythm heavy rappers.
Animated by Kelly's keyboard prowess and arranging skills, the R&B hybrids on 12 PLAY reach extraordinary sensual heights on such foreplay classics as "Bump N' Grind" and the title tune, a heat and serve, oven ready dish on how to do the nasty: and from all the evidence, one can only assume R. Kelly's 12-play is thrice as nice as your standard, garden variety lover's 4-play. "Your body is a playground, let me lick you up and down" he urges his partner on "It Seems Like You're Ready," growing more fervent with each chorus, as background singers coo away suggestively. On tunes such as "Freak Dat Body," "Homie Lover Friend" and "I Like The Crotch On You," Kelly alternates hip-hop choruses with his own yearning tenor to powerful effect.
Recorded at The Chicago Recording Company, Chicago, Illinois.
Personnel: R. Kelly (vocals, rap vocals); Carey Kelly, DeAndre Boykins, Casey Kelly (rap vocals); Keith Henderson, Michael J. Powell, Bobby Broom (guitar); Michael Logan, Mike Logan (piano, organ); Jim Slattery (keyboards); Peter Mokran (programming); Yvonne Gage, Robin Robinson (background vocals).

Best Of CD (2003) Top Seller
All the Greatest Hits album for sale The only U.S. chart hit not featured on the Best Of Loose Ends compilation from EMI U.K. is "You Can't Stop the Rain." Most of the other significant moments in Loose Ends' history are provided here, making it the one disc to snap up, since all of the group's albums were uneven affairs. The biggest singles -- "Hangin' on a String (Contemplating)," "Stay a Little While, Child," "Slow Down," "Watching You," "Don't Be a Fool" -- are included, but a couple key album tracks are missing in action. Even with the minor gaffes, this should be all the Loose Ends that you'll need. Unless a very similar compilation comes along someday to right the wrongs, look for this one. ~ Andy Kellman
Import only compilation from one of the top British Urban/dance acts of the early '80s. This trio (Carl McIntosh, Jane Eugene and Steve Nichol) began life as Loose End, but changed their name to Loose Ends right before fame came knocking on their door when they hit paydirt with the 'Hangin' On A String' single in 1985. Their hit streak continued up through the end of the decade with tracks like 'Golden Years', 'Slow Down', 'Watching You' and others. The group did continue in the early '90s, but only after Eugene and Nichol had been replaced and the magic had all but disappeared. 15 tracks. EMI.
Best of Cameo CD (1993) Top Seller
All the Greatest Hits CD music Cameo were, in their earliest days, heavily influenced by the mighty P-Funk empire, but unlike George Clinton, Larry Blackmon's sharp ear for a pop hook overruled his fondness for extended, open-ended funk jams. In other words, Cameo were a singles band, something that could never be said of Parliament or Funkadelic. All of the group's best singles are collected on 1993's THE BEST OF CAMEO, from crossover smashes like the immortal "Word Up!" (always and forever the group's best four minutes), "Candy," and "She's Strange" (here in the seven-minute 12" version with a hip-hop breakdown excised from the hit) to earlier, horn-driven R&B hits like "Rigor Mortis." The focus on singles does mean that the group's facility for soulful Quiet Storm ballads is downplayed, but overall, THE BEST OF CAMEO is a solidly listenable introduction to this often-underrated band.
Includes liner notes by Richard Torres.
Cameo: Larry Blackmon (vocals, bass, drums, percussion); Tomi Jenkins (vocals); Nathan Leftenant (background vocals, trumpet).
Additional personnel: Wayne Cooper, Stephen Moore, Kurt Jeter (vocals); Anthony Lockett, Charlie Singleton (guitar, vocals); Eric Durham (guitar); Arnett Leftenant (tenor saxophone, background vocals); Jeryl Bright (trombone, background vocals); Thomas "T.C."
