Editorial Reviews

Melissa Manchester is one of the premier female vocalists of the last three decades! She has had loads of charting albums over that time. Surprisingly very few of them have ever been issued on CD. Hey Ricky reached # 19 on the Billboard charts in 1982. It was her second highest charting album. 2006.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hey Ricky by Melissa Manchester August 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Finally managed to get this out of print CD! Great songs, especially the duet with David Gates, titled "Wish We Were Heroes". A truly 80s classic!

1.0 out of 5 stars Arista Contemporary should be shot September 29, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Melissa Manchester is a wonderful singer. Her progression from earth mother to Europop princess to Broadway style chanteuse is wonderful. Because the breadth of her work spans so large, you'll naturally prefer some styles of her albums over and above others.

Hey Ricky was a very good, very modern for 1982, album. Featuring production by Arif Mardin, photography by Helmut Newton, and songs by Melissa, the Gershwins, and others... it came together as a terrific package.

The 2006 re-release by Wounded Bird Records is, as always, most welcome. They offer fine reproductions for a good price... sleek looking and good sounding. You can never go wrong.

But for some reason (money) they lost the rights to that re-release, and now you can find this fine release withering away on "Arista Contemporary". The sound is good. But the package would be embarrassing, at best, by anyone's standards. The fine cover picture is now "framed" (read, smaller) in blue. There is no mention of producer, songwriters, recording location, date of recording, or even the date of the re-release. Most egregious of all, the entire song selection listed on the back is 100% erroneous.

Some fool re-released this good album, and didn't even listen to it!

It's the only production of this album we now have available to us, so purchase it if you must. But the good people at Arista Contemporary should be ashamed of themselves.

4.0 out of 5 stars You should hear! November 7, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Of course, this CD contains "You Should Hear how He Talks About you", a song that got me through some rough spots in the 1980s. I love the overdubbed vocals. Such a great pop song. My other favorite on this one is "Hey your place or Mine" such a great R&B spot. "Come in From the Rain" is classic Melissa, a kind of singing I wish she had stuck with on her latest (2005) CD where she sings through a frog. I love her belted vocals - they push past clouds and move my personal mountains.

Once called by one publication "Pop's Classiest Voice," that may be a tall title to give to one person, but Melissa Manchester is certainly a person of worthy consideration for the title. An amazingly versatile singer, she threw a bit of everything into this album, and no matter what she's doing, she does it all in good taste. This album spawned the Grammy-winning smash hit "You Should Hear How She Talks About You," a bouncy piece of pop perfection. Her versatility is well showcased on the cheerful, upbeat "Looking For The Perfect Ahh," the beautiful pop ballad "Come In From The Rain," the soul-tinged ballad "Your Place Or Mine," and the jazz chanteuse styled "Someone To Watch Over Me."
