5.0 out of 5 stars The Teddy Bear lives on! November 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
To an earlier generation, if you mentioned the name "Teddy Bear", everyone who is an R&B fan would automatically know you were talking about Philadelphia's own Teddy Pendergrass, the powerhouse lead vocalist behind the huge hits of Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes in the `70s, and later on, a successful solo artist, and R&B sex symbol. But to my generation, if you're talking about the "Teddy Bear", then you're unquestionably referring to another powerhouse singer - the late son of the legendary O'Jays vocalist, Eddie Levert - Gerald Edward Levert. After his days as a New Jack Swing artist in Levert, the group he formed with his brother Sean (also deceased, March 2008), Gerald went on to become a sex symbol in his own right, which led to we female fans calling him OUR "Teddy Bear".

We lost this extraordinary icon of R&B on November 10, 2006, way, way too soon. Only 40 years young at the time of his passing, Gerald - or G. as so many called him - amassed millions of fans in his 20+ year career. I can recall the sadness and hurt I felt when I first heard that he was gone - I remember it because I still feel it today. I actually cried when he passed. He bridged the gap between the old school soul and R&B that his father's group became famous for with the R&B of today, and was successful at it. The fact is, real vocal talent like G's could never really go unnoticed by ANY generation. However, as contemporary as he might have tried to be, at heart, G was an old soul. He was truly his father's son, never hesitated to pay tribute to those who came before him, and it came through in his music.

When I heard that I could get just 'ONE MORE NEW G SONG' what's a gurl to do!?!?! I had no choice but to grab this. 'Casanova' will always be my favorite with it being my introduction to this man's fascinating voice!!! Takes me back to the days when life was more carefree ad music was filled with substance and tales of love, good loving, and not just raw freaking, although some of you know what I really wanna say. 'Baby Hold On To Me' still has its mesmeric hold with the endearing lyrics that make you wanna be with the one you love. It hasn't lost any of its lustre. 'Answering Service' and 'Private Line' brings their heat with the depth of his sexy baritone and the promise of what that lover has for the recipient. 'Taking Everything' still brings the visual of that captivating video with G and Kelly Price. I could go on and on because I can't sing this Musical Magicians praises long or loud enough. I liked the new song like I knew I would. There are many more 'G' hits missing such as 'She Done Been', 'Mr. Too Damn Good'...G, my G...music hasn't been the same since we lost our Illustrious Teddy Bear! I'll be a Gerald LeVert fan for life! For real, True Story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get it! September 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Love everything Gerald. Only let down on this CD is that it's not a double disc. Gerald was in the game for 20 years and there were so many more songs that could have been added to his Greatest Hits.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gerald at his best September 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I still remeber the day, I found out Gerald Levert died back in 2006. I've always been a fan of Mr. Levert and this album features some of his best known songs. However the clear standout is the sensual slow jam Can It Say. The linear notes of the album say that Gerald recorded this song back in 2003 and it clearly shows we lost a true ballader. All in all a fine album from an R&B icon.

I just wanted to hear the one song he does with his father. I got the single to it but I played it so much that I got a scratch on it. Love this CD and miss him so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a must have for any Gerald fan
I miss Gerald, and this album makes me miss him more. There are too few great R&B singers, and had he lived, he could have made the cross-over like Ne-yo.

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible.
Too droopy and draggy, too much begging, and whining. I would not recommend it. Perhaps one of his earlier albums would be better.

Gerald's Greatest Hits...
Nice, but I made a BETTER Gerald Levert anthology (2 CD Set) of my own at home, which includes a bunch of non-album tracks (including B-sides, movie soundtrack songs, and even a few remixes).
