4.0 out of 5 stars Lady T is "T"riffic! July 6, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I know, I know, really corny! Stumbled, is the word I'll use for finding out about Teena Marie. Sure I knew of the rockin' hit "Lovergirl" but I guess my navie self never thought to devulge deeper into Teena's music. So I did a little research, downloaded some tunes and I am now a fan of Teena Marie. I know this is the "Epic Era" Greatest Hits but The Ultimate Collection didn't hit on some of the songs I really dug that were on this album, such as "Out On A Limb" which I have to say is a beautiful song! Very sensual and pleading and worth one star alone. "Work It" is another one of my fave "T" songs. It's jazzy feel just flows and the lyrics are so damn catchy! "Ooh, La, La, La" is sweet and has a that Teena touch. And we all know "Lovergirl" so why should I waste time describing this excellent song? I thought this was missing the driving "Lips To Find You" which has the tightest beat of any Teena song and the coolest bassline ever. Personally this album whould have been better if it did include the "Motown Era" hits such as one of my faves "Square Biz" (I love that whole rapping thing that Teena did) and "Behind The Groove" which has another sharp bass line but I know that these are two separate great hits compliations. If you want to get into some Teena I suggest you listen to the songs I listed above and also "I Need Your Lovin", "Alladin's Lamp", "It Must Be Magic", the Rick James duets-"Fire & Desire" etc. Trust me you will be hooked by now. Teena is one of those artists (like Madonna) who reinvents herself, she went from disco to the 80's dance to heavy metal to jazz and still maintains a solid audience. If you don't know Lady T, get to know her, because her music moves your feet and your soul and you will not want to stop listening to her.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just A Touch June 22, 2004
By fathom
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album with the intent of capturing "Lovergirl" and "Ooh La La La" on disc, given my familiarity of their airplay on the radio. Without realizing the extent of this woman's depth, understanding, emotion and love for music, I never really listened to her lyrics with the same passion that Lady T delivers them. Thankfully, I made this purchase, which allowed me to begin to comprehend her artistry and skill, leaving me with a curiosity about her music.
Teena Marie is a sorely underrated and overly talented songstress with a great story to tell as she weaves her way through a web of songs like "Cassanova Brown" "Dear Lover" "If I Were a Bell" and "Out On a Limb." Although "I Got Yo Number" and "Here's Looking at You" didn't really strike me as great, I understand and appreciate Lady T's ability to deliver both uptempo dance tracks and soft, sultry ballads with finesse and craft.
This compilation expresses some of Teena's best balladeering, but does not fully reveal her depth as the legendary artist she is, as it only surfaces on her best work. Albeit, I guess that is what makes Teena Marie such an anomaly. I don't think there is one compilation disc that contains her best work, because she has created so much beautiful and adventurous music that she always leaves you hungry for more. In order to appreciate it, her music is the kind that must be listened to, not just heard. With that said, she is easily one of the greatest legendary R&B artists since the birth of the genre.
My advice to those who want to capture her best music is to create your own compilations. Even so, you will never capture the essence of Teena Marie. Everything she has done musically is worth your attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Epic Hits July 9, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Of the six Lady Tee greatest hits cds that I have, this ranks at the top as a good representation of a few of her really big hits from the mid-late '80s like: OOO LA LA LA, OUT ON A LIMB, LOVERGIRL, & CASANOVA BROWN. While also giving listeners a sample of the creativity this woman possesses by her mixture of funk/r&b/pop elements.

This disc has a good balance between music tempos - it's not as ballad heavy as some of the later greatest hits releases and is a really fun disc to just pop in and listen to.

I'd highly recommend it to Lady Tee fans as well as those who just want a sample of her earlier work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Lady T !!! January 18, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Wow! Where do I begin? I LOVE me some Teeena Marie! Her soulful style and classic love ballads resonate within my soul. This CD is a staple in my collection and will be for many, many years to come. The only songs missing from this greatest hits is "Fire And Desire" and "Square Biz". My personal favorites are "If I Were A Bell", "Dear Lover" and "Out On A Limb". My dream is to one day see her in concert. To any Teena Marie fan---get this CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars No one does it better than Lady T July 9, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Although this is missing some other greatest hits, I have to say that this album is wonderful! "Work It," and the dedication to Marvin Gaye, "My Dear Mr. Gaye," are just beautiful. Lady T writes and produces all of her songs and to sit and listen to this sultry, soulful voice is sure to put anyone at ease. I can play this CD over and over again, and believe me when I tell you that I do. I would recommend this album to anyone.
