The pinnacle of the 70's sound is here. The man does it all, ballads, funk, dance. All of these songs bring back memories, especially the few from "The Mack" I jst wish Motown would release his "The mark of the beast" and "Ode To my lady"
from 74 and 75

"SLICK" will probably be one of his biggest songs, Willie Hutch will be most remembered for, along with "BROTHER'S GONNA WORK IT OUT", "IN & OUT", "LOVE POWER", and "PARTY DOWN". Let's not forget he wrote "I'LL BE THERE" for the Jackson 5. He will be sadly missed . I'm sure he's in Motown Heaven !!

More 70's music. You should have been there. I can still see Willie performing his interpretation of The Way We Were on American Bandstand. Outstanding! And what a response he got. I'm sure the off-camera stage crew were holding up applause signs, but the applause for Willie went beyond that. Possessing a distinctive, emotive, melodic voice, he didn't just sing to you, he told you a story, and more often than not, had a way of making you feel what he was feeling. One of Motown's most under-rated performers, it's a shame his only big individual success came with the release of the super soundtrack "The Mack". Make no mistake about it though, the songs on this "best of" are vintage Hutch, the aforementioned The Way We Were, Party Down, Love Power, Sunshine Lady, I Choose You (one of my all-time favorite slow jams), and What You Gonna Do After The Party, being the best of a solid bunch. A welcome addition to my collection. Thank you Motown.

Willie Hutch passed in 2005 - - a unique figure in soul music, because like Bunny Siegler, he wrote the songs people sang, could have been a hit maker himself, but spent most his time behind the scenes. Oddly, his strongest works in my mind were the stuff he did for soundtracks like THE MACK and FOXY BROWN - - albums who's soundtracks may not not be as famous as SHAFT and SUPERFLY but are pretty much as funky, bad*ass yet mellow and groovy as you get - - and strangely enough, track by track very hit oriented. (Songs, not just orchestrations!)

Sadly, Hutch never became the superstar he deserved (though its great to see him on some of those old Soul Train episodes floating around!) I think its really sad - - He reminds me a lot of yet another "in the shadows" soul singer: Leroy Hutson - - both had very strong songwriting and orchestrating skills, distinct *driving* styles, yet are not as well known as they should be. - - And if you're not sold on what I'm saying yet, hopefully this great compilation will serve as THE PROOF - - My strong advice however is to get MACK and FOXY instead... great albums listenable straight through!!!

Willie Hutch may not be as familiar a name as other Motown Stars, but simply do a search on the internet and you will realize that Willie was right beside most everyone of any fame from the 60s & 70s. The Very Best of Willie Hutch is a must have and also be sure to check out his brand new release "Sexalicious"...it's awesome! 15 songs guarenteed to put you in the mood..GET IT!!!

I discovered Willie Hutch when my mom was listening to him and listening to his music on the Mack Soundtrack he really and truly delivers on this cd every song on here is good especially my all-time favorite" I choose you" he did a remake of Barbara Streisand's "The Way We Were" he did a remarkable job of that remake he did the remake to "I'll Be There which he had wrote for the Jackson 5 he has written songs for Smokey Robinson and many other people he is very underrated and very overlooked he is a great singer he has such good songs such as The Foxy Brown theme, Slick, Brotha's Gonna Work It Out, Sunshine Lady and Many great others I would truly reccommend anyone who likes Willie Hutch to buy this album!!!!!
