Editorial Reviews

Product Description

There's already at least one collection of Lionel's danceable hits, but this is the first compilation to highlight his romantic side. From his Commodores days through his amazing solo career, this retrospective includes six (count 'em) #1 pop hits: Hello; Truly; Say You, Say Me; Three Times a Lady; Still, and Endless Love . 14 tracks in all, including more big Commodores and solo hits. Outstanding!

Amazon.com

Since it contains six tunes that Richie wrote and performed as lead singer of the Commodores, the title for this collection may be technically a little misleading. That said, those who appreciate Richie's instantly recognizable vocal style are unlikely to complain about the inclusion of such pop standards as "Three Times a Lady," "Still," and "Easy." Maybe it's the passage of time, but Richie's solo work sounds more emotionally satisfying than the hits he had with the group: "Hello" is still eminently soulful and "Penny Lover" has a warm and cozy feel. "Endless Love," Richie's memorable duet with Diana Ross, shows that both singers can truly deliver powerhouse vocal performances, while the oft-overlooked Commodores hit "Sweet Love" is a welcome addition to this collection. Richie may not have been in favor chart-wise for a while, but this package is a reminder of the contribution he's made as a contemporary writer of classic love songs. --David Nathan

This is a consummate collection of ballads and slow jams from the heyday of the Lionel Richie's 1980's solo output, featuring 5 classic songs from the Commodores, when they were the reigning r&b group in the 1970's. It is an essential landmark collection of classic romantic recordings that inspire the listener to feel, to dream, and to love. Of the 14 tracks, 13 were bonafide top 10 hits including six number one singles, that dominated the charts for well over a decade!
The collection includes the #1 ballad of all-time, the ultimate love theme to the movie "Endless Love," sung with superstar, Diana Ross. This epic beautifully blends the powerhouse vocals of these two consummate singers. The song spent a phenomenal nine weeks at the top of the charts! Richie who also penned the song was going to give the song to Stevie Wonder originally, but passed on the this, when he decided to leave the Commodores and persue a prosperous solo career in 1981!
From his 1982 self titled debut comes the classic "Truly," which shines as a memorable track that showcases Richie's tender and soaring vocals.
By 1983, everything that Richie touched automatically turned to gold, or should I say platinum. His second solo outing "Can't Slow Down" displayed great stamina (more than half of the tracks on the album were top 10 hits/5 songs in total released) and remains Richie's finest original solo album. Featured from that set is the tender love ballad "Hello," the smoldering "Penny Lover," and the country/folk tinged "Stuck On You.

How could you give this anything less than a 5? I'm a 23 year old college student who listens to all types of music, but this is a classic that transcends age. Every track on this CD is awesome and relaxing, that is rare now days. You can just put the CD in and hit play, lay back an enjoy a one of a kind album. Do your self a favor and buy this, you'll love it.

Lionel Richie is one of the most gifted writers I've ever heard. This collection blends his signature sound of his own songs, and his work with The Commodores. The songs range elegantly from Endless Love, to Hello, all the way back to Truly. This is a great album to help fall in love with their soulmate. I truly find Lionel Richie to be amazing.

For those looking to get the best of Lionel Richie, with and without the Commodores, I would recommend buying this album. It is very rare nowadays where you can buy a CD that has top to bottom great songs...this CD does. This is the perfect album for the couple in love, the beautiful Sunday morning drives, or any time you need to kick back and relax. This album covers all of Richie's greatest love songs, my favorite being "Easy." I definitely recommend this as a buy.

What could you say about Lionel Richie when he started his career with The Commodores and later solo. All fourteen songs were written by him which were all chart toppers of its time. Let alone his music crossed genres over to country from pop / R&B tunes. Only those in relationships that's worth fighting for will find this LP of all love songs pleasurable. This has feelings and depths with the arrangements and vocal range of Lionel.

LIONEL is L-O-V-E! No one writes love songs like Mr. Richie! He's simply gifted! This collection of songs will have you mellowed out in no time. If you've had a hard day and want to relax, pop in this CD and it will make you melt and wash all the dirt of the day away! Exceptional collection!

Having "Stuck On You" on this album (my all-time Lionel Richie song) is worth the price of this album alone, there are 13 other great tracks by this amazing artist. A MUST OWN if your a sucker for love songs like I am.
