My only disappointment was discovering that the c.d version of this album has a few seconds of the cool intro on Baby Come to Me lopped off (radio edit?) as opposed to the l.p. Also, a few of the tracks have been re-mastered or "enhanced" with additional instruments not on the regular l.p. (no-it's not because it's on c.d. and sounds clearer than an l.p.-- a trained ear knows these little sonic differences).
Aside from the technical or engineering sonic differences, every track is beautifully crafted and sung by Ms. Austin. You can hear it in her vocal talent and ability that she has a lifetime of natural skill and professional training behind her; What extraordinary finesse and style !
The producing and arranging from Quincy Jones has that familiar Michael Jackson-Off The Wall sound as well (which he also produced for Michael with Patti Austin singing background vocals).
The collaboration of Jones and Austin have given the world an example of what it is to produce an album (regardless of the genre) with equal amounts of excellent crafstmanship and talent from the producer and artist !!! 5 STARS ALL THE WAY!!!
I first heard Austin work with Quincy Jones on his 1978 album Sounds...And Stuff Like That!!, where she performed the stunning tunes "Love Me By Name", "Superwoman (Where Were You When I Needed You)" and the beautiful duet with Luther Vandross, "I'm Gonna Miss You In The Morning". Then there was "It's The Falling In Love", her duet with Michael Jackson on his 1979 album Off the Wall, and the brilliant Grammy Award-winning "Moody's Mood", her duet with George Benson on his 1980 album Give Me the Night, both Quincy Jones productions, of course.
But it was on Q's 1981 album ...Read more ›
"Do You Love Me" is a mildly new wave synthesizer charged adult contemporary dance number-whose strong guitar groove and well crafted melody made it a strong contender for all around success. "Love Me To Death" is one of my personal favorites here.Read more ›
