Format: Audio CD
I was a big fan of Ray Parker Jr. back in the 80s, and only recently found some of his albums on CD; "A woman needs love", "The other woman", and "After dark". Most of the songs on this greatest hits are taken off his earlier albums; "Jack and Jill" and "You can't change that" (off the first Raydio albums), "Two places at the same time" (the title track, "For those who like to groove"), "A woman needs love" (the title track, "That old song"), and "The other woman" (the rock-ish title track, "Let me go").

A sprinkling of songs off later albums also appear, as well as his #1 smash "Ghostbusters" from the movie of the same name.

So why get this collection if one already owns the earlier albums? Well the Pop/Rock-tinged "Bad boy" (one of my favourites) never appeared on any studio album (it was a new track on his 1983 Greatest Hits collection. I wish the other new track "The people next door" was also included here), and there's also "Jamie", and "Christmas time is here" (the latter boring if you ask me) for the completists.

Aah, the memories.

Format: Audio CD
The Ghostbusters soundtrack, as I said long ago, was the first popular music album I ever bought, thanks to the movie and Ray Parker Jr.'s #1 title track. Hence, he was one of the artists I got into back in the 80's. In my CD days, I was hard-pressed to find a greatest hits compilation, then found this one awhile back. Parker embodies a more crossover pop sound than pure R&B, perhaps influenced by Lionel Richie. A funky synthesizer keyboard is accompanied by a blaring rock guitar.
Obviously, "Ghostbusters" is on there as the leading track. It was last year that I learned that he was sued by Huey Lewis for ripping off the riff to their "I Want A New Drug." While certain sounds are comparable, I see the lawsuit as unjustified, as there are discernible differences.
"The Other Woman" features a rock guitar set to a funking beat and details a one-night stand to hot romance. The protagonist has a lot of chutzpah, as he clearly relishes his actions: "Now I hate to have to cheat, but it feels better when I sneak." Say wha...? Such a nerve, but the song's got a great beat.
The skippy "You Can't Change That" has Arnell and Darren Carmichael, his usual backing vocalists, having some solo bits here. "A Woman Needs Love (Just Like You Do)" was one of my favourites by him, a mid-paced made lush by flute accompaniment. He's quite the progressive here, dismissing the double standards of women mostly gone, but the gist is, give her affection when she needs it. Giving that excuse "about being tired and working late" will result in the man's feelings being hurt.
"I Still Can't Get Over Loving You" is another favourite, the sole representative of his Woman Out Of Control album.

This CD is a definite addition to any soul music lover's collection. It includes material when Ray Parker, Jr. was with Raydio. My favorite songs on this album is "You Can't Change That", "A Woman Needs Love (Just Like You Do)", and "Jack and Jill". All of these songs sound so good and have that unforgettable sound of the late 70s and early 80s (old skool at its best)! Before hitting it big with Raydio, Ray Parker, Jr. appeared on other artists' albums playing guitar and played on my favorite soul singer's album, YOUNG HEARTS RUN FREE (1976) by the wonderful Candi Staton.
Surprisingly Ray Parker's biggest hit, "Ghostbusters" doesn't sound as good when compared to his earlier material. So if all you've ever heard from Ray Parker, Jr. is "Ghostbusters", then you are missing out on a lot of good tunes.

A nice collection of the good old music from Ray Parker Jr., yet some nice tracks are missing. Some listeners might recall songs which lyrics center about the aspects of an unsatisfying love life; "I don't think that man should sleep alone" and the one that gives the story about a girl showing up at the store complaining about her radio playing only sad love songs of which of course Ray has a fool-proof cure. The fifth star would be within reach by the two songs added to the album. It is a bit sad that Ray is "Ghostbusters" alone to many potential listeners. Explore and Enjoy!

Yes, all the hits are here and they are great. But Arista or somebody needs to upgrade this CD. Released in 1993, it includes no liner notes (except for song info). All of Ray's albums deserve to be on CD and a new compilation needs to be done. Black-pop doesn't get any better than this. Here's hoping the Ray Parker Jr. revival occurs soon.

....Jack and Jill, The Other Woman and Jamie? There is not a bad song on this CD. I suppose I'm a bit biased, because Jack and Jill has become one of my favourite songs of all time. (How many lyrics today ask...why do you think I cheat, I wasn't getting love from YOU). I've always been a huge fan of Ray Parker, but not only, because of the quality of the songs, but the all the lyrics seem to have a message that about loving relationships, that you didn't and still don't seem to hear everyday. You'll have to listen to see what I mean.
