1988's Best New Artist Debut
on March 14, 2003
First off, let me just say that it's ridiculous that this album is out of print. Jody Watley was huge in the late 80's and even into the early 90's with a string of dance pop hits, but now, it seems that she's been completely forgotten which is a huge injustice.
This being her platinum debut brought her onto the pop scene with her huge hit "Looking For A New Love" which hit #2 on the pop charts in 1987. Other top 10 hits followed including "Some Kind of Lover" and "Don't You Want Me." My favorite Jody Watley song is included on here also being the catchy and melodic "Most of All" which really shows off her beautiful voice. "Still A Thrill" is another highlight. It almost sounds like a different singer all together with jody singing in a deep, sultry voice. There's even a duet "Learn To Say No" with George Michael who was just about to take off himself with his solo career.
I can't help but notice that almost all of Jody's albums are out of print including her successful sophomore album "Larger Than Life" which would yield her several more hits and her "Greatest Hits" which is ridiculous. It's virtually impossible for newer music fans to experience her awesome dance pop. I think her record company needs to get on the ball. Buy this even if it used.
