This review is from: Baby Come to Me: Best of (Audio CD)
Ah yes the soulful, jazzy sounds of Regina Belle

I happened to come across this cd on Amazon.com quite by accident. Having never heard of Regina Belle i did play some of the sound samples and loved everyone of them. After that I decided to purchase the CD. Every time I play it I like it just that much more.

Her voice reminds me a little of Billie Holiday with a helping of Dinah Washington, Roberta Flack, Gladys Knight and Patti La belle thrown in. Soulful, powerful and beautiful vocal styling's all in one voice, amazing. It is very easy to get caught up in the emotion of the song that she is singing because she makes the songs so personal.

"Didn't I blow your mind". This is one of my favorite songs by the Stylistics and I didn't think that anyone could do it better and then I heard Regina Belle sing it and I was totally blown away, what an incredible voice and style.

Another one of my favorite songs is "Baby come to me" that is every bit as good as the Patti Austin/James Ingram version.

"Love TKO", Originally a Tedd Pendegrass composition, truly brought to life by Regina with the amazing power in her sweet voice.

My Favorite Aladdins Theme with Peabo Bryson, What a song what a voice what a duet. Absolutely astounding and beautiful.

Every song on this cd is a great listen. Both the production and engineering are done very well and serve to highlight Regina's style.

What we have here is fourteen great songs made better by the fact that Regina Belle is singing them. If you like the sound of a stunning female voice singing then this is for you.

I totally agree, Ms. Belle has one of the most beautiful, authentic, distinctive, stylish, brilliant and most recognizable voices of our times along with Anita Baker and Luther Vandross.
Her take of "Love T.K.O." is by far the best version. Michael McDonald's new version (from "Soul Speak") pales in comparison.
The version of "Baby Come To Me" by Patti Austin/James Ingram that you mention is just a different song. It's a beautiful one and Patti's signature.

Why to pay 20 bucks or 10 buck at amazon, when you can have it for 6.99 at Barnes&nobles?

My review was based on the music not on the price tag. It was bought a few years ago when I payed ten dollars or so. Not sure what the cost was at Barns and knoble was at that time.
