Dear Reader, I kid you not, I got a little teary-eyed when I saw that this album was finally being released domestically and remastered on CD. I paid a small fortune for the Japanese Import years ago without giving the price a second thought as this is (IMO)Deniece Williams' most fully realized work to date. Honestly, there is not one bad track on this CD and believe me, there's something for everyone here (R&B, Pop and Inspirational). For those of you who are unfamiliar with the "Niecy" Lp, it contains the #1 R&B/top 10 pop cover smash "Its Gonna Take A Miracle" as well as the classics "Waiting", "How Does It Feel?" and the heart-wrenching "A Part of Love". The sound quality of the remastered CD is crisp and clear. Don't think twice ORDER THIS CD NOW!!!!!

I had the misfortune of being a teenager during the "dark ages of Black music" of the 1980s when synthesizer banging high tech drek, jerry curled junk, and computerized crap junktified the airwaves. During that putrid era, Deniece Williams was a welcome breath of fresh air that served as a musical oasis in a barren climate with her angelic tunes.

This album was a fine example of this. "Waiting on the Hotline" is one of the great underrated tunes of all time. The piano intro leads lovingly into Miss Williams' sweet and sassy vocals as her multioctave pipes pound plentifully (I've often wondered why rappers never sampled this catchy beat). "How Does It Feel" is a really sweet tune to a catchy pseudo-reggae beat and the part where she shouts "grab your self-control" sends me into sheer bliss. "I'm Still Waiting" is also rather mellow and relaxing after a hard day.

Sadly, because she happened to come out during a time of such otherwise rotten "music," she did not get the recognition she deserved and a lot of her lovely songs were unheard outside of Black American radio stations and dancehalls in Merrie Olde England. Rectify this situation, rediscover Niecy, and buy this CD!

They finally released this as an Import, another cd if Niecy's, I've wait for decades. This was a great! cd, I have a last up to date cd. Which came out in 2010 and the woman, still has that songbird voice.

Deniece Williams' "Niecy", released in 1982, was the Diva's fifth studio album and is perfection from beginning to end. Williams teams up with maestro Thom Bell to co-produce this solid effort and the results are magic. Williams scored her biggest solo hit to date with her take on "It's Gonna Take A Miracle", which went Top 10. Williams' rendition of the Royalettes classic is that rare instance when the re-make is an improvement on the original. But the game doesn't end there. "Love Notes" is a gorgeous breezy R&B song, as is "Waiting By The Hotline", and "How Does It Feel" grooves along in similar vein. "I Believe In Miracles", "Now Is The Time For Love" and "A Part Of Love" all slow down the pace and foreshadow Williams' eventual move into Gospel. Williams shines on these ballads. But the defining moment of "Niecy" is without a doubt the moody, haunting "Waiting". How "Waiting" did not become an across the board smash defies explanation since the song has that effect when you get the shivers listening to it. "Waiting" is a gorgeous example of a song that will linger in your mind for ever once you heard it and is perfectly sung by Williams. "Niecy" is an over all shining example of the perfection that was early 80's R&B.

Major Shout Outs and Thanks to Big Break Records for re-mastering this long out of print masterpiece. As is always the case with a BBR re-master, the sound is great, the liner notes are informative and the beautiful original album cover art front and back is preserved. There are also 3 bonus tracks here, with "It's Gonna Take A Miracle", "Waiting" and "How Does It Feel" all presented in their single versions. A must have for any R&B collector.

I first heard it in 1982. A low profile album with the best soul sound. it would be a viable project to the relavant companies to make this album to a CD. It's a must have album.

I have had this on CD for many years now from Japan, but this Reel Music release just blows that one away! Of course, this album is a classic -- and while it is short, there is not one single minute wasted during its' 33 minute playing time. Reel Music should be applauded for the TLC they have given to this release (and really every one of their releases): the sound quality is excellent, the booklet has intelligent and lengthy liner notes including new interviews with Niecy and Thom Bell, and the lyrics are included, as they were in the original LP. I can't recommend this or any of the other Reel Music releases enough! Be sure to check out the others by Esther Phillips, Cheryl Lynn, Phyllis Hyman, Gloria Jones, Yvonne Fair, and Chris Clark.
