I truly enjoy this album. Frankly, I had forgotten about the Debarges until I gave their "Greatest Hits" another spin. If you can find this CD, you will pay ($20 U.S and UP!!!!). My only negative is that by the time the CD gets going...it's over...thank goodness for "Repeat all." If you can get a copy at domestic, by all means buy it and have fun with this 80's R&B/Pop/Soul/Dance collection.

One of their best and probably their most popular album. Hard to find on CD. More of an uptempo, commercial pop feel than their previous albums as Motown was looking to turn up the sales and tied this in with the Berry Gordy movie "The Last Dragon". Some big hits here including the title track, the ballad "Who's holding Donna Now" which shows El in top vocal form, the funky Chico DeBarge contribution "You wear it Well". Other good tracks are the sister song to the title track, latin fused "Heart is not so Smart", the uptempo "Prime Time", the soft duet classic "Share my World" with El and Bunny taking control and the offbeat "Walls (Come Tumbling Down) which has been a favorite of R&B acts looking to sample. The only down track is probably Marty's lead vocal "Give it Up" which shows he should have spent more time working on his trumpet than trying to contribute vocally. James and Bunny should have been given more vocal time based on their wonderful performances on the "In a Special Way" album. But this is a minor complaint for a fine all around album.

Most of DeBarges' greatest can be found on The Ultimate Collection, but this album works pretty well on its own, and the bouncy "Give It Up" is one of those great shoulda-beens that nobody really paid attention to.

With the major success of their second and third albums, the DeBarge family had officially overthrew the Jacksons as the top selling black family act in the country and Motown records had big plans for them. They were already doing several commercials like McDonalds, were the faces on many covers of Right On!, Jet, Teen Beat, and Black Beat Magazines, outstaged Luther Vandross on his national tour (they were only the opening acts), and now Motown wants them to be the biggest artists in the world. Although it seemed that Motown was totally rocking the boat for DeBarge by hiring outside producers and having the family sit out of most of the participation in writing the songs, the family (with the exception of the star, El) were deemed unreliable mainly due to their drug abuse. According to the Unsung series, James, Bunny, Marty, and Randy DeBarge were absent on nearly all of the songs, including the top 5 pop hit single, "Rhythm of the Night," (also turned out to be their second and last R&B #1 hit). On the same documentary, James DeBarge stated that he, Marty, Bunny, and Randy were not called in the studio to do the background sessions and did'nt know much about the production of the album. "Rhythm of the Night" was the group's best selling single, their first (and last) music video, and was included on the soundtrack of Berry Gordy's' The Last Dragon film (they made a cameo appearance on the film), however the song was written by Diane Warren and produced by Richard Perry (known for his work with the Pointer Sisters' hit songs like "Jump" and "Automatic"). I remember watching the video on WABC's New York Hot Tracks and their performances on Solid Gold and Motown Returns To The Apollo (it was the opening song on this TV special that celebrated 50 years of the Apollo Theatre in 1985).Read more ›
