4.0 out of 5 stars A Treasure Entitled to Rescue from Obscurity! February 14, 2004
Format:Audio CD
With songs penned by Prince, accompaniment by the likes of Stevie Wonder, the late Miles Davis, and George Benson, the one-and-only Chaka Khan displays her magnificent range and emotion on this eclectic blend of various styles, from funk to jazz to pop standards.
The best cuts are a cover of Wonder's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered", an obvious attempt to recycle the sales of her earlier "I Feel For You", and the two jazzier numbers "End of a Love Affair" and "I'll Be Around".
One of life's (or at least the music industry's) "mysteries" is why this was not a bigger seller for the singer. Her label just didn't appreciate the talent that it had, obviously opting to push younger, and, without a doubt, less-talented artists.
She, and all of her fans, deserved better.
Track listing and times:
1. Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours - 4:48
2. Soul Talkin' - 4:18
3. It's My Party - 5:12
4. Eternity - 4:03
5. Sticky Wicked - 6:57
6. The End of a Love Affair - 5:12
7. Baby Me - 4:06
8. Make It Last - 4:47
9. Where Are You Tonite - 4:56
10. I'll Be Around - 5:20

5.0 out of 5 stars Chaka! June 9, 2003
Format:Audio CD
What does a 16 year old know anyway? Well, what my dad told me about Chaka Khan and Rufus...so deal okay? :) I liked this album, personally I thought it was a teensy bit better than "I Feel For You". "CK" ushers in some huge talent like Prince, Miles Davis, Brenda Russell, Stevie Wonder & George Benson among others to contribute to this underrated album. My favorite track off of this album will have to be "End Of A Love Affair" Chaka belts this one out beautifully and George Benson backs up wonderfully. "It's My Party" is well.."party like" while Stevie's "Sign, Sealed, Delivered" is fresh and witty. The Purple One, Prince makes two "guest" apperances on "Sticky Wicked" and "Eternity" (which I liked- I also heard Sheena Easton did it before Chaka). "Soul Talkin'" is soul driven with some scat by Bobby McFerren (I liked this one as well). "Where Are You Tonite?" has a jazzy feel to it with a soul twist and "Baby Me" has a rock vibe to it with some sultry lyrics attached. This is a good album to own and to listen to any old time, Chaka never dissapoints me and this little number didn't dissapoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album, Underrated February 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Its a shame this album didn't catch on in 1988 because it has some great tracks and great musicians. In 1988 the New Jack Swing era had just begun and this album got lost in the shuffle. Notable guest appearances from Stevie Wonder (on harmonica), Bobby Womack, Bobby McFerrin, Prince, and Miles Davis. The killer tracks are Its My Party, Sticky Wicked, Soul Talkin', and Baby Me. The album's centerpiece is the haunting Prince tune Sticky Wicked which features Miles Davis on trumpet. This song tells the tale of a drug addicted mother who is so strung out she doesn't recognize her own daughter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for Filling the 'Khan Jones', pt ll.. July 6, 2000
Format:Audio CD
...I must be a true Chakaholic. Want evidence? Well, I can tell you how great this album is not just 'cause of yvette stevens' background overdubs, but it's the only thing I know of with both Prince and the late great Miles Davis on one track--"Sticky Wicked(t)"; the songtress extraordinaire Brenda Russell lends a hand in penning "Baby Me", the Isleys w/ Angela Winbush does a Rufus-ish "Make It Last", there's Stevie's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" where it's eerily like the original (Khan on background when Stevie originally did it...? If she was there, she ain't tellin'..), and the top 20 hit "It's My Party"--no, not like the Leslie Gore one. Then, last but not least, the Paisley One joins our heroine Chaka again for "Eternity". At the risk of sounding like a cyberstalker, suffice it to say I love the woman. She's simply addictive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Under Appreciated May 10, 2004
Format:Audio CD
After the overkill production of 'Destiny' Chaka Khan knuckles down with a leaner,smoother and therefore funkier set
of songs.On the Prince pend horn funk of "Sticky Wicked" Khan tries her expert hand at rap and on a cover of "End Of A Love Affair" she tries to pull off Billie Holiday's beaten,defeated
vocal style yet comes off much nicer.And on cuts like "Soul
Talkin'","Make It Last" and the grooving "It's my Party" she
shows as savvy that proves even during Chaka's own personal
crisis with coming off of drugs and dealing with a teenage daughter her independant flair still comes off nicely.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really 4.5 stars January 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is a very, very good cd. Chaka has some heavy weights guest starring on this one. George Benson, Prince, Miles Davis, Brenda Russell and Bobby McFerron. She covered two jazz standards and they are very nice, especially I'll Be Around, which I believe is a dedication to Billie Holiday. Chaka's grandmother listened to that song when Chaka was a lil' Chaka. What a beautiful interpretation she does! I also like Soul Talkin' and Where are You Tonite-it showcases Chaka's ability to sing in a lower register than she normally sings. I don't think this cd sold well, but trust me, it is worth purchasing and it stands the test of time.
