Richie provides us with a skeletonized, distinctly-arranged yet lushly-produced re-recording of his great hits with, not to duplicate the known, current artists listed in the product description. Rejecting the techniques of his earlier overproduced and overtly multi-tracked recordings, Richie's remake is significantly cleaner, lusher, and less distorted, as he explores the essence and soul of his now-classic hits. The good thing is, Lionel has not lost his voice and conviction with advancing years. I think this can be a contender for one of the year's best recordings that newbies who are not familiar with Richie's career and time in place will enjoy as much as those of us who grew up in the earlier era when All Night Long was a daily practice, not just the title of a song. Richie just proved to old and new fans and those who will be both, that his music is ageless, and cannot - will not - be dated.
