This was a bit of a sleeper-hit for Gwen Guthrie, but is was an important aspect of the late 80's/Early 90's R&B/Dance sound.

You can tell that Gwen, Benny Mendina and the other producers were striving to have the current sound. When you listen to the songs on "Hot Times" you can't help but remember this eras' sound. Artists such as Cherrelle, The Pointer Sisters, Phyllis Hyman, Evelyn King, and Melba Moore come to mind on many of the songs here.

Three songs in particular represent this time period well

6) Feel Good (111 BPM) Reminds me of the sound Blackbox was
introducing to the states around 1990 or 1991.

8) Our Love (104 BPM) This should have been a huge single. It has that
complete summertime "FM-friendly" vibe. Think One Way, Cherrelle,
SWV, SOS Band, Regina Belle, etc.

9) Same Ole Thang (109 BPM) This is easily the most searing track on the
whole disc. Cherrelle and Karyn White really come to mind on this
obviously commercial R&B funk attack. A floorpacker with plenty of
mainstream appeal. This would hold up well even today.

Gwen Guthrie has a wonderful ballad that closes out the set "Never
Knew Love Like This," (no, it's not a cover version) the song shows
her great range and maturity as a true artist.

In addition to picking up a used copy of this CD (Plenty currently
available @ Amazon right now, by the way) you should also investigate
Guthrie's back catalog. Big, better and richer than you probably had
imagined. This lady rocks, folks!!

I only recently discovered Gwen Guthrie's music this past summer, but I now have the majority of all of her albums. There is something captivating about nor only her smooth vocals, but her song writing as well. She had a vocal presence unlike few others, singing with true emotion, never having to throw off all the crazy vocal acrobatics because she was that good. This is a great album. I am a bit saddened by the fact that she is with the lord now but she has definitely got another fan in me. This music will definitely live on in my life! R.I.P.

GREAT CD...Too bad Gwen Guthrie is no longer with us, but her music lives on (amazon) and beyond. She is missed.
