4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By M. Fyffe on December 16, 2007
Format: Audio CD
To do this review, I decided to start with a heads up on each song on the album and then go into this collection's specific flaws.

The album kicks off with Anita Baker's "Giving You The Best That I've Got." The song and corresponding album cleaned up at the Grammy's, winning Best R&B Vocal Performance, Female in 1988 as well as Best R&B Song. In addition, the album of the same name won Best R&B Vocal Performance, Female in 1989. These awards were fitting as Anita Baker has such a strong sweet voice. She really delivers her all on the track as she sings about treating a lover right and giving them your all. The song is a nice start to the album and a reflection on how 90s R&B really began in the late 1980s with artists like Anita Baker. (4.5/5)

Following the track is the soulful "Wishing Well" by Terence Trent D'Arby. The album the track was from, Introducing the Hardline According to Terence TrenT D'Arby, won Best R&B Vocal Performance, Male in 1988. The song has a nice funky sound to it and has some fun musical interludes. I couldn't really tell you what the song means or is about but it is entertaining nonetheless. (4/5)

The third track on the album is Soul II Soul's "Back To Life." The track features Caron Wheeler and is most well-known for its catchy chorus. However, while the chorus is catchy, it is catchy because it is repetitive and redundant. I personally think the song is rather mediocre but it was able to win Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal in 1989. (3/5)

The album really hits a sweet spot on the fourth track with Luther Vandross's "Here And Now." Listening to the sweet vocals throughout, I've already decided that if I ever get married, this must be my wedding song.

I purchased this one for the Ray Charles song. The rest is just a bonus. Glad it was available. I had a very hard time replacing the one album that had "A Song for You" on it I used to own.
