This 1983 release was Phyllis' final Arista album and is now (thankfully) available on CD. Of course, this album includes the horrific and blatantly commercial Disco hit "Riding The Tiger" (which Phyllis herself hated so much she ultimately refused to perform it live) but the ballads which Arista's then-president Clive Davis deemed too inferior to release as singles are the album's crown jewels. Sparsely-produced yet lush romantic ballads like "Falling Star", "Just Me And You", "Let Somebody Love You", "We Should Be Lovers" and the minor hit "Why Did You Turn Me On?" are just as good as anything Phyllis recorded for her "Living All Alone" and "Prime Of My Life" CDs and should make this CD a must-have for anyone who loves passionate and romantic music. On a personal note, I want to thank the people at Reel Music for not only reissuing this album on CD but also for the obvious cre they took in properly remastering it. Enjoy!

"Goddess Of Love" would turn out to be the final Lp that would issued on The Arista Label. Lead by the Lame single "Riding The Tiger" (phyllis's dislike of this song has already been mentioned). How Clive Davis thought this was a Hit is beyond me and most of the Phyllis Hyman fan base, but there was no love lost at this point in the Clive Davis/Phylis Hyman relatonship so who knows, maybe he set her up.
The GOOD news was after you get past the first two tracks (the title track "Goddess of Love" being the other) the Lp REALLY becomes Classic Phyllis Hyman. The 2nd single "Why Did you Turn You me" (#74 R&B) right through to "25 miles to anywhere" are among the best songs Phyllis had in her recording career.
With the Stunning album art, it is nice to have the complete Lp at long last (all but "25" could ve found on some compilation) but very pleased we have the lp on Cd.

For those who have collected Phyllis Hyman over the years on CD knows that this album was the "missing link". Granted, all tracks popped up sporadically on various compilations, but not the complete album as its own. Reel Music really took care in remastering GODDESS OF LOVE and present it as it should be heard. Even if not a personal favorite, glad that the album and extended dance versions of "Riding The Tiger" are here. My favorites from this set, "Let Somebody Love You", "We Should Be Lovers", and "25 Miles To Anywhere" sound superb. Very lengthy liner notes in booklet. An absolute "must" for every Phyllis fan.

This is an album that has forced strong reaction from Phyllis Hyman fans from its release till now. The first and major single used for this album GODDESS OF LOVE was RIDING THE TIGER and is considered by many to be awful, a true insult to Phyllis and her artistry and a move that caused future trouble with her career. I remember when I bought this album 1n 1983. I was 22 and I also was let down by the gimmicky, lackluster songs GODDESS OF LOVE and RIDING THE TIGER. But things were different at that time. With albums you had to flip it over for side two and the first half of the first side being these gimmicky disco castoffs didn't give listeners much motivation. This was sad for the rest of the album was indeed classic Hyman and on this reissued cd which is remastered beautifully it shines like a new found gem.

Phyllis Hymnan was not the only artist that was hindered by the disco era. It was so strong and permeated the airwaves so strongly that practically every artist had to show their over the top disco side. The sad fate that would befall Phyllis is another reason people look so badly at this release. To read in the extensive liner notes how they were trying to create a new image for Phyllis and these two songs were indeed part of it is very interesting. Phyllis Hyman was a true vocal stylist with a range and power to her voice combined with an emotive delivery that far surpassed most singers of any style of that period. She was a great jazz, r@b and soul singer. Her vocals effortlessly flowed and caressed each song she tackled.

I agree that the two disco tracks here were a misstep but hearing them here I still hear the strong presence that is Phyllis rising above the material and though true camp I truly enjoy them.

Why did it take so long to make this CD? Do I have to wait another 27 years for the next one to be made?

This was one of Ms. Hyman's finest recordings of her career. The album cover is one helluva eye candy as well. She still to me today is one of the most underrated talents of the last four decades. This is a woman who never really got her just due as an vocalist. She is still missed in the world of music today. I hope that some company comes along one day soon and re-release this recording as well as some of her others onto compact disc real soon.

Despite turmoil with Arista Records during the recording and release of what would be her final LP for the label, Goddess Of Love remains an enjoyable Pop/R&B album. The first two tracks "Riding The Tiger" and "Goddess Of Love" are festive forays into disco-styled dance music that show Phyllis in "diva" mode with commanding vocals and frisky lyrics. Perhaps these more lavishly-produced tracks do not reflect the sound most Phyllis Hyman listeners would expect, but if taken at surface value they are uptempo jams with vocal thrills to spare. "Why Did You Turn Me On" slows the tempo a tad and gives Phyllis a lush orchestral landscape for flexing her capable pipes, and is followed by the dramatic "Your Move, My Heart" before turning to the smoothly alluring "Let Somebody Love You." The ballads "Falling Star" and "Just 25 Miles To Anywhere" are classic Phyllis torch tear-jerkers that sound as fresh today as they did back in 1983, while the funky "We Should Be Lovers" and the understated groove of "Just Me And You" nicely round out the set. The remastering is nicely done, although the title track appears to have a somewhat premature fade (though the average ear likely wouldn't notice the few missing seconds of music). The extended dance version of "Riding The Tiger" appears as a bonus track, and it easily outperforms the album cut with an additional two minutes of vocal ad libs, jungle-styled rhythms, and pure fun!Read more ›
