Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

One of the most consistently enjoyable and successful of '80s dance-pop acts, Shalamar still sounds fabulous on this hour-plus set of classic singles. From the late-disco era "Take That to the Bank" and "Second Time Around" to the New Wave-like "Dead Giveaway," Greatest Hits is a stellar listen and a reminder of the days when Solar Records was in the forefront of modern R&B. Only the empty-calories Motown medley "Uptown Festival" and the movie theme "Don't Get Stopped in Beverly Hills" slow the flow. --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a superb album! Had it for a few years August 28, 2004
By Preston
Format:Audio CD
I recently got their just released double CD anthology. But this single CD really covered that 10-year period of hits that Shalamar had. They really created that classic slow Jam For the Lover in You that's still played to this day. I still like Second time Around, Take that to The Bank, Dancing in the Sheets, Games and others. But one of my favorites is I Can Make You Feel Good and its many bridges and peaks swinging all across the song. I can't believe that it peaked at no. 33--should have gone top 5 to me. Maybe they're not into those kinds of songs for radio. But this album was a benchmark to the successful future solo careers of Jody Watley (whom I still love) and Howard Hewitt (one of the best male R&B singers of the '80s). I remember when Solar Records had hits left and right with some 3 or 4 artists--were the Bad Boy and Motown of its time. They could still be doing it now if they had to. But Shalamar was a major part of that period with their different lineups. They made quality songs and hits and this album proves that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Perfect, But Pretty Darn Close February 18, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The lovely and funky pop Shalamar produced in the early '80s still holds up amazingly well, and it's great to see a compilation that finally does them justice -- I can finally put to rest the original Solar compilation on cassette (taped from LP) that I used to play endlessly. Though a number of import compilations have popped up over the years, I usually found they omitted key songs and had too much of the group's later music, when the group essentially lost all its talent and reason for being.
The pop Shalamar produced at first sounds catchy but frothy, but listening to their entire string of hits and the transcendent voices of Hewett, Watley and Daniels, all driven by the propulsive, sexy Solar sound, make it clear this is music for the ages. Fans will quibble with a choice or omission (I wish "Full of Fire" and "Go For It" had been included, I prefer the mix of "Second Time Around" included on other compilations, and the last two songs don't mean much to me), but this pretty much includes almost all of the highlights. I'm especially happy with the choices from the group's last good album, "The Look", when they moved away from their traditional sound toward one more influenced by rock and synthesizers, and which tends to be overlooked by some traditional fans -- "You Can Count On Me", with its falsetto harmonies, is one of their best songs, an unbelievably beautiful ballad.
As a former DJ, I continue to listen to (and enjoy) tons of current music, from rap to techno to rock to jazz to R&B...Beasties, Beck, Moby, Slick Rick, R Kelly, Coltrane, etc etc But this music has a special place in my heart, and makes me very happy every time I listen to it, no matter what my mood. I'm thrilled such a sublime collection is on CD at last.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not true to form August 20, 2001
By Ann
Format:Audio CD
I was a little disappointed with this compilation. True Shalamar was Jodi Whatley, Jeffrey Daniels, and Howard Hewitt. I guess I'm going to have to buy Three For Love. I was looking for the CD that was out in 1981 when I graduated from high school. That was all that we pumped at all the summer parties that year. The first song, I have no idea why it's even on here (and I read the inside jacket) and the last five songs mean nothing to me. It was okay. I just have always associated their sound with the first three memebers. Anything after that just didn't sound right to me.

3.0 out of 5 stars FEEL CHEATED WITH SHORT VERSIONS May 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Thanks to another reviewer [B.C.] for the heads-up regarding the fact that the songs collected here are the short single versions, rather than the album or extended 12" cuts. A major part of the greatness of the SOLAR label's output is the awesomeness, fun, and inventiveness of the fuller or extended club versions of their productions. This is especially true for Shalamar. To be fair, the number of selections here is generous; still, I would have prefered the 10 best-of-the-best in all their full-length glory. Truth be told, also, this is a greatest hits collection and just fine for those who are content with more selections in their shorter versions, and there is a SHALAMAR, THE 12" COLLECTION for those like me who prefer the full and extended versions. That set features 13 tracks.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very good, but read this first ... September 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The music deserves five stars & this collection contains all major & minor hits that the great group had, but the reason for the 3 stars is that all songs are in their 45 rpm versions! This may not bother some, but for the TRUE fan (like me), this will be very annoying.
For those of us who need something more, buy the 12" collection here on Amazon. This is an import from Canada & a little more expensive (about $$$), but MUCH better. This one also collects all the hits & all of the long versions at that. To have Uptown Festival in its' complete form after all these years is great!
See what kind of a fan you are & make your decision off of that. Hopefully you will make the 12" choice ...

5.0 out of 5 stars IM BACK IN GRAMMAR SCHOOL February 28, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I HAVE TO SAY THAT EVERY TIME I HEAR "SECOND TIME AROUND", I GET ALL GIDDY INSIDE. I ADORE SHALAMAR, WHENEVER I HEAR THEIR MUSIC, I AM BACK IN THE 6TH GRADE. THERE ISN'T MUCH MUSIC THAT CAN TAKE ME BACK TO A PLACE IN MY CHILDHOOD, BUT THIS SONG DOES THAT FOR ME. I REMEMBER LISTENING TO THEM, AND EVELYN CHAMPAGNE KING OVER, AND OVER, NO MATTER WHAT MOOD, I AM IN, I CHEER UP WHENEVER I HEAR 2ND TIME AROUND, AND "YOU MAKE MY LOVE COME DOWN" WORDS CAN'T EVEN EXPRESS MY JOY:o)

4.0 out of 5 stars Album Good But Not Complete
Not sure why they omitted "Full of Fire", my favorite of all their many songs. It would be great if they ever toured again as a group with a disco show.
