The debut solo album from Basia (last name Trzetrzelewska) continues her collaboration with Danny White, the two of whom had previously worked together as members of the group Matt Bianco on the 1984 album "Who's Side Are You On". That album includes the popular "Half A Minute", which has Basia on lead vocals, and it clearly paved the way for this album. Basia has a somewhat muted presence on "Whose Side Are You On", not contributing to any of the songwriting, and contributing far less vocally than one, in hindsight, would expect. On one hand, this "Time And Tide" album is cut from a similar cloth as "Whose Side Are You On", but I find this disc to be a huge step forward. With better songwriting, a less gimmicky/ less 'dated' sound, and of course, Basia completely taking over the lead vocals, the pair struck gold here--this is a terrific album, simply put.

Basia is out of this world as a vocalist. She's got a total command of her huge, riveting voice, alternating brilliantly between tender, seductive passages and powerful, thrilling climaxes, and she does so without shipping over into show-biz schmaltz. She's got a huge vocal range that she gets a ton of mileage out of. Although the liner notes don't explicitly say so, I believe Basia also handles ALL of the harmony vocals on the entire CD, to glorious effect.

Basia and her "silent partner" Danny White produced the album, and they also handled all of the songwriting except for Peter Ross' lyrics on 5 of the 10 songs (including the US top 10 adult contemporary hits "Promises" and "New Day For You").

Inspiration and class run rampant here. There are loads of great instrumental flavorings such as the sudden blasts of 'xylophone' (synthesizer?

I have owned this album since 1988. I have recently rediscovered it and have not stopped playing it since. The contrast between 'How Dare You' (full of attitude and swing) and 'Miles Away'(ever sweet) is refreshing. The title song 'Time and Tide' will be familiar to anyone who owned a radio in the late '80's, however every song on this album is wonderful. Definitely one of those albums you will put on 'repeat'.

Neo-Bossa Nova and pre-Vida Loca jazz pop from the Euroangel Basia. It is simply brilliant. You will not get tired of it. My faves are the home and hearth cut "Miles Away", with its walking bassline, and "Primetime TV". We need more of her jams on the radio, because once the audience finds her, she will always please them.

That line I wrote at my title was in Polish, for any of you who are curious. I have great associations with this album. This was my introduction to Polish pop, and I have my first-generation maternal grandmother to thank for that. She wanted me to appreciate and have an awareness about my mother's cultural heritage, since that was all I knew about, not knowing my Venezuelan father. I was about five when she bought this for me, the year it came out in 1987. Even at that young age, this was one of my favorite cassettes to play. The combination of Basia's soothing, soaring and tender vocals, with backbeats and percussive rhythms borrowed from and inspired by Brazilian samba and bossa nova was immediately engaging, easy to listen to and very catchy. It did give me a sense of true cultural pride to hear our Polish Sade singing gorgeous songs that were getting considerable airplay on U.S. smooth jazz and pop stations!

I like all of the tracks on this CD, but some of my favorites, by far, are "Promises" (which warmly hooks us in with warm tropical rhythms and Basia's smooth and expressive crooning), "Astrud," (very reflective, expressive, melancholy and beautiful to listen to), and "Miles Away" (a more jazzy and bluesy number filled with wistfulness).

This is truly a timeless album and I hope that new generations are introduced to this wonderful singer and her great, innovative sound that is appealing to a great cross section of listeners, no matter their culture!

Basia's solo debut is simply a stunning album, and a worthy successor to the genre-blending harmonic bliss of Matt Bianco's "Whose Side are you on." The first time I ever heard the single "Time and Tide," I thought the clear, assured voice sounded like a young Linda Ronstadt, and I still think it's a brilliant single to kick off an amazing body of work. The songwriting (with Danny White) is sensitive and insightful, the melodies rich and full of Latin and jazz influences and textures. It is music too smart and sophisticated for the masses, and it's a credit to Basia that she doesn't strive to be more commercial. She's big in Brasil and many Latin countries, and I believe that attests to her appreciation of melody and Latin musical forms. Whether she is mining the melancholy of post-relationship emotion in "From Now on," tearing it up on "How Dare You," floating breezily through "Miles Away," or singing a glorious tribute (and repaying her debt of influence) to Brasilian superstar Astrud Gilberto on "Astrud," she always sounds elegant and intelligent. Matt Bianco fans might miss the zany genius of Mark Reilly, but Basia and Danny White prove with this CD that they are worthy colleagues of Mr. Reilly and his musical mayhem machine. You can't help but be excited about how to follow such a spectacular debut.
