Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered edition of the Pop/R&B vocalist's 1977 sophomore album. Deniece first made an impression as part of Stevie Wonder's back-up trio, Wonderlove, in the early '70s. In 1976, she released her debut album This Is Niecy, which featured the mega-hit 'Free', which topped the UK chart. Song Bird was produced by Earth, Wind & Fire's Maurice White. This edition features extensive liner notes, an interview with Deniece and a bonus track.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cd remastered beautifully November 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a gift for fans of Deniece Williams or quality music in general. Deniece Williams possesses the voice of an angel with an awe inspiring range and emotive vocal ability unsurpassed. I became a fan around the time of LET'S HEAR IT FOR THE BOY and purchased many back releases from her career. But there were many that I missed and this was one of them. This was her second release and it comes here with extensive liner notes that includes an indepth interview with Ms. Williams. The humility and sincerity she possesses gives the listener even more of an appreciation for her music. It comes from her heart and soul. Her first releases contained mostly songs she had written and she admits she was most comfortable with those for they were her words. She always saw herself as more of an artist than a singer.

The entire set here is a stage for Deniece to use her vocal prowess to explore many emotions with her artistry. The best tracks are indeed those she wrote. There have been many collections of Ms. Williams work and I am shocked that the amazing THE PAPER has not appeared on any before. It is an emotion of your sleeve self penned tune with raw and honest emotion about the divorce she was going through. And being a very spiritually based person her gospel and christian music has always been exemplary. Her self penned GOD IS AMAZING is worth the price of admission alone. Other standouts are TIME, THE BOY I LEFT BEHIND and SEASON.

The highest kudos must also be given to Big Break Records. They are taking classic r@b/soul albums and releasing them with the tenderest of care. The reMastering is exsquisite, liner notes very detailed and all presented in a royal package. They are truly paying homage to great music and great artists. I can't recommend this cd enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thanks Big Break Records for releasing Niecy's Song Bird! September 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD
For years I have been desperately trying to acquire a cd copy of Denice Williams' classic "Song Bird". Unfortunately, there was only a Japanese pressing available and it was selling for upwards of $150. So, needless to say, when I had read Big Break Records was remastering and releasing Song Bird, I was rejoicing!

Now that I have it, I would like to thank BBR for doing an exceptional job on the remastering. Also, great thanks for including the bonus track (promo single version of Baby, Baby My Love's All For You). I'm not sure why one reviewer trashed it. I've been playing it in the repeat mode (and full blast, I might add) and am thoroughly satisfied!

I'm hoping BBR won't stop with Song Bird...Bring on Niecy's other elusive CD.."I'm So Proud"!!!

After waiting years, also hitting every record store New York City has to offer it's fiinally, finally here, the haunting rendition of a couple awaiting divorce (The Paper) is still one of Neicey's true masterpieces, fans our time has come, Songbird has come home.

Not a moment to soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended Chicago Soul... September 8, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is Niecey was Deniece Williams' debut produced by Maurice White and Charles Stepney. After Stepney died, Williams and White followed it with this album in 1977. Despite not having huge hits like Free and That's What Friends Are For, the album is class from start to finish. Highlights include Baby Baby My Love's All For You, the Paper and The Boy I Left Behind. Get it now. Despite what the reviewer below says, I find the mastering to be excellent. The Japanese CD sounded flat.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm Glad I Lived Long Enough For This One February 12, 2011
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
Face it, Deniece's best work was during her Maurice White period. They were basically Earth, Wind & Fire albums with Deniece fronting the band instead of Maurice & Philip Bailey...like the latter day Emotions albums. What more pedigree does one need? Rich, tight production values... my cup runneth over. The next time we heard from her (other than a few elusive gospel tracks with Bailey) was "Let's Hear It For The Boy". WHAT???!!!???? Okay, and her cover of "Gonna Take A Miracle", but it pales by far in comparison to the music she did for Kalimba.

I'm ordering this tonight for "God Is Amazing", but I loved the entire album. Not as strong as "This Is Neicy"; slightly jazzier (the mighty mighty Maurice White is the drummer on "The Paper"), but infinitely more interesting and satisfying, to my ears at least, than whatever followed. I loved the LP, and I'm very happy to add this CD to my collection.
