Biography

Biographyby Ron Wynn

The daughter of jazz and pop legend Nat King Cole, Natalie Cole has forged a successful career in two phases, doing R&B/urban contemporary and then jazz-based pop. She made her stage debut at age 11 and sang in college. Cole met the writing and producing team of Chuck Jackson and Marvin Yancey in 1973.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Natalie's best albums December 31, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The title song says it all--Natalie, it's good to have you back! All of the songs on this album are catchy and well produced. Natalie is at the top of her form. "Someone's Rockin' My Dreamboat" is my favorite, along with "I Do" and "Rest of the Night". A must have for any Natalie Cole fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars God! I love this album! March 21, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is excellent. I love listening to all of the songs in a row--listening to one at a time doesn't give you the ENTIRE Cole experience. My favorite song on the album is "Miss you like crazy." Natalie, we love you!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Natalie Cole Good To Be Back July 8, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Natalie Cole's 1989 Pop-Rock Album Good To Be Back was a perfect way for her to end the 1980's,because she ends it on a possitive note.The songs are Safe,As A Matter Of Fact,The Rest Of The Night,Miss You Like Crazy which sometimes makes me think of my grandmother's 1987 death,I Do her duet with Freddie Jackson,the title-cut Good To Be Back,Gonna Make You Mine,the remake of Dionne Warwick's Starting Over Again,Don't Mention My Heartache,the personal I Can't Cry,and the Remake of the late Dinah Washington's Someone's Rockin' My Dreamboat.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITE ALBUMS January 19, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This album never goes out of style. From "miss you like crazy" and "starting over again" to "gonna make you mine" and "good to be back" this album gives powerful ballads and upbeat adult contemporary. I always tell people I liked Natalie best when she worked with Michael Masser and when she was doing contemporay stuff, not old stuff like now. This album is 5 star.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps Natalie's best in the pop genre September 7, 2002
By libby
Format:Audio CD
Natalie Cole is now famous as being a jazz singer in the tradition of her late father, Nat "King" Cole. I have listened to her sing jazz, and even saw her in concert, and still believe that Natalie is NOT a jazz singer! I'm not saying that she sounds terrible or anything, I just think that her music was much stronger when she was not doing scat singing, working with a full orchestra, etc. Natalie Cole is a great artist, but I really miss the pop side of her music. This album is the strongest Natalie album I have heard, and should have done way better on the charts.
The album offers a mixture of styles that Natalie can sing really well. There are big ballads, danceable funky numbers, and relaxed soul songs. The album always has a cohesive sound to it, as if the first and the last songs ("Safe" and "Someone's Rockin' My Dreamboat"), although very different in style, could still belong on the same album. My favourite is easily "Miss You Like Crazy", a huge chart hit in 1989, and yet a song that seems to rarely gets radio play anymore. It's strong in that the whole song is a crescendo, complete with the classic Michael Masser key changes. Natalie's high range hits the notes perfectly, complete with the emotion that the song evokes. Another favourite is "Gonna Make You Mine", a mid-tempo number with simple lyrics and neat jazzy chord progressions, but could still be considered a pop song. "Rest Of The Night" is another good one, with soaring vocals and a neat key change. Other good songs are the dancy "Safe", the modern-sounding "I Can't Cry", and the 1980's R&B of "Good To Be Back".
The album does contain some weak spots.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love This!! December 28, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album, yes album, and converted this album to cd. Not one song is bad and I remember this album (cd) was re-issued a year later to include her hit "Wild Women Do " from the Julia Roberts film "The Lady In Red." With or without that song, this album (cd) is one of Natalie's best.

For collectors and die hard fans: The album version is the same featured on the "Miss You Like Crazy" cassette single.

I liked Miss You Like Crazy and Starting Over Again, both brilliant tracks. The duet with Freddie Jackson wasn't bad. Good to be Back is OK, but sort of cheesy. Read more
