Thelma Houston's "Don't Leave Me This Way" is one of my all-time favorite songs-- a true Soul classic. Now, 17 years since her last album, Thelma is back with a superb collection of new tracks.

First, the cover photo. At 61, Thelma Houston looks fantastic. And as for the music, my "first listen" random streaming thoughts: the voice is strong, rich, soulful, powerful, glorious. Back-up singers: awesome. Stand-out gems: a slowed-down, funked-up version of Marvin Gaye's "Aint That Peculiar" that is a bluesy, gospel-influenced gem. Top-quality recording, great instrumentation, hot brass. Her take on Sting's "Brand New Day" is wonderful. Thelma's voice rips into the song, and the sublime back-up singing is a joy. If anything, Thelma's voice seems to have gotten richer and more expressive over the years.

I recommend this album without reservation. If you appreciate soul, R&B, Motown, or outstanding female vocalists, Thelma will fill you with love and happiness!

Five SOULFUL Stars!! WOW! Thelma Houston has produced a HUGE performance after more than a decade's absence! What a great concept: taking songs associated with great male soul performers, Ms Houston takes command and does each one her way. Long thought of as one of the major 'Disco Divas' and famous for her awesome disco anthem "Don't Leave Me This Way", she proves she's ready for the next phase of her career beyond the earlier singing days and her acting and stage careers. Using great arrangements, a hip enthusiastic chorus, a hot band, and her own huge beautiful soulful voice, this is a clear 'grand slam home run' of a CD.

From Teddy Pendergrass ("Wake Up Everybody") to Marvin Gaye ("Distant Lover") to Sting ("Brand New Day") to Al Green ("Love and Happiness") to her update on Isaac Hayes' version of Glen Campbell's "By The Time I Get to Phoenix" to Luther's "Never Too Much", she comes up with winner after winner, redefining each song into a new diamond-like personal performance. Each song carefully crafted to be a winner and stand on it's own. She 'talks' her way into many of the songs, in the R&B/soul tradition of 'setting up a song with a story', established by singers like Mr Hot Buttered Soul, Lou Rawls, Barbara Mason, and Linda Clifford. She does major musical surgery on both Marvin Gaye songs: a gospel-influenced "Ain't That Peculiar" and a sizzling "Distant Lover". The icing on the cake: the Percy Mayfield blues classic going all the way back to 1950, a dynamic "Please Send Me Someone to Love" that begins with a four note quote from Gaye's "Let's Get It On". Spread the word, Thelma's back and she's on fire with a fabulous voice. The sound is clean and clear. My Highest Recommendation. Five HUGE Stars!!

It's been far too long since Thelma Houston made a cd, and while I would like to see a collection of NEW songs, I know that is not happening much with classic arists.
However, any time Thelma makes a new cd it is a welcome return. A nice thread of songs made famous by male singers now get "Thelma's" touch. and while you here at Thelma's page, if you have not heard her 1970 "Sunshower" lp produced by Jimmy webb this is a great time to pick up that gem as well before it's gone.

OMG!! Thelma it is about time! This is one GREAT CD. The song selections couldn't be better. It is everything that is good about classic R & B. But doen't expect retro. Thelma doesn't just cover the songs SHE OWNS THEM! Move over Isaac, Thelma's By The Time I Get To Phoenix sets a standard in a new light. Wake Up Everybody addresses 2007 without being preachy. Sting's Brand New Day is a brand new song.....a better song. You MUST BUY this CD. Crank it up and drive until it has played through a few times. You won't stop smiling.

It might seem like an insignificant moment to you, but it hit me hard with the first note I heard Thelma sing on her new CD, A Woman's Touch. It wasn't the song I was listening to that gave me the flashback, no, the song on my soundtrack memory was Thelma's 1977 hit "Don't Leave Me This Way", and it pierced my mind's ear in stereo. It was my 18th birthday, disco was living, and I had the rest of my life to make a mark on the world. I was learning to be a disc jockey and working at a local dance club spinning records. Because I was suddenly deemed legal, I was promoted from "teen" nights to "adult" nights. Being 18 meant I could stand behind the turntable until 2 AM as well as sip on a 3.2% beer. I had planned my play list for this historic night in advance and Thelma's was the first song I laid the needle on. All was well.

All is great with Thelma Houston's new CD! I shook myself from my memory flashback and listened in the present as Thelma sang. This is her first studio release in 17 years and as I listened, I wondered about the memories it might have evoked in her.

Making A Connection
Thelma Houston's new work is a collection of her favorite songs from some of the greatest male singers. She truly redefines the work of such legends as Luther Vandross, Rev. Al Green, and Sting, as well as Marvin Gaye. She doesn't just cover them; she makes these songs her own.

Now, I really want to put this in the right words; her presentation of these seasoned hits was done in such a unique style. Wait, that's too vague. What I'm trying to say is that Thelma seemed to be talking as well as singing the lyrics. She knew the ideal each song held and she conveyed it with her own message. There were actually times on the CD that it seemed she was talking to me.
