Distant Conversation - 5:17 Singer Adventure Home, a 1995 Sony Music movie soundtrack. like her siblings Janet, LaToya, and Randy, was out of the public eye when her brothers stormed the music world as the Jackson 5. Born Maureen Jackson in Gary, Indiana in 1950, Rebbie was taught clarinet and piano by her mother. It wasn't until 1976, after the Jackson 5 had left Motown and signed with CBS, that Rebbie began a professional After her brother Michael's success with the mega-selling Thriller, he was given the chance to write and produce. His first project was Rebbie's first single "Centipede," which hit number four R&B in fall 1984. The Centipede LP, released in October 1984, featured tracks produced by former Crusaders member Wayne Henderson. Her next album Reaction was issued October 1986 and included tracks produced by David "Pic" Conley and David Townsend of the group Surface, plus Rebbie's brother Tito Jackson. The title track single hit number 16 on the R&B charts in summer 1986. The follow-up was "You Send the Rain Away," a duet ballad with Cheap Trick lead singer Robin Zander that made it to number 50 R&B in late 1986. Another fine duet ballad, "Tonight I'm Yours" with Isaac Hayes, received substantial airplay as an album track but curiously was never released as a single. R U Tuff Enuff was the title of her third Columbia album, issued in February 1988, featuring one single ("Plaything") that reached the R&B Top Ten. Her popularity with devotees of Britain's rare groove scene prompted the release of The Rebbie Jackson Collection by Expansion in 1996. After a hiatus from show business in which she moved to Virginia, Rebbie signed with Michael Jackson's MJJ label in the late '90s. Her label debut Yours Faithfully was released in March 1998.

This is a strong set from Rebbie Jackson, the production was great, mid tempo R&B ('Perfect Combination','Read Between The Lines') and jazzy ballads,('This Love Is Forever' which is fantastic!, 'Sweetest Dreams')with great background vocals from the late Gwen Guthrie, 'Plaything' the first single got some good airplay, 'Distant Conversation' contains a sample of 'Reaction', 'Friendship Song' is a nice duet ballad with Bernard Jackson(lead singer of the 80's group Surface).

RU TUFF ENUFF was Rebbie's third lp and with better promotion it should've sold more.

I almost never heard of Rebbie's music when I stumbled upon this album at a used music store.I was delighted to learn, later, that not only Michael & Janet had had a career between the Jackson siblings. Of course, I was aware of Jermaine's career as well, but I never thought the others did something with their musical genes. Well, was I wrong! La-Toya had (and still have) a long solo career; Jackie have some solo albums to his name, Marlon made his one and only album in 1987, and Randy made one album with his own band, "The Gypsies".
Rebbie was one of the Jacksons that had a brief career, but that doesn't mean her music is bad. In fact, it's not bad at all - I just think it was unfortunate for her to be a part of the Jackson family because the music-buyers were fed-up with the Jacksons.
In the year when 'Centipede', Rebbie's first album, came out, The Jackson had their 'Victory' album out, Janet had her second album 'Dream Street', La-Toya had an album of her own as well. But still, If one chooses to listen to Rebbie's music, he will discover a quite talented singer with a good sense of rhythm (a natural thing for a Jackson).
This album, 'R U Tuff Enuff' was her third, and it was published in 1988. As such, the music is very eighties, yet there is this distinctive Jackson beat in all the upbeat songs. Rebbie have a good singing voice, and it showes especially on the ballads.
I love the fact that albums from the eighties are not long - up to ten songs, sometimes nine or even eight (like in this one), and the listener doesn't get tired of listening to an album that seems never-ending (like some of Celine Dion albums, for example).

I absolutely LOVE the vinyl album!!!!! I was thrilled to be able to get the music on the old 'hot wax' since it was not available on CD.
Rebbie was ahead of her time and a true credit to her multi-talented family - and I do mean ALL of them! I wish she had produced more albums but I truly understand some of the reasons this may not have been done - with the POLITICS of the music industry and all. You would think that whoever is hot would be a great commodity to the industry but unfortunately that is STILL not the case, even as we are fast approaching the year 2011.
I hope that her son Austin's album will be available SOON and I wish the whole Jackson family much success in all the endeavors they are pursuing.

Most of the tracks have aged well, with a few exceptions. The only sizable hit was "Plaything", and since its not available to download, buying this CD is your best option for adding it to your iPod.
The title track is good, but there's a remix out there on vinyl with a rap by Melle Mel that is way better.
