If you are going to call yourself a "hits" album and forget perhaps Sylvester's biggest hit (outside of the double A-side of "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)" and "Dance (Disco Heat)), where is your thematic cohesion? It's an album chock full of great songs, but more a scattershot collection of good moments rather than a unified "hits" album.
This CD, if you ever see him in person, will bring you back. If you never saw him perform, you'll get a hint of what the energy was like.
'Do You Wanna Funk?' and some other songs.
1. Dance (Disco Heat)
An excellent dance hit. With the blend of Sylvester and his Two Tons o' Fun, this makes you wanna dance.
2, You Make me Feel (Mighty Real)
This is the first song that I ever heard Sylvester's voice and it's still great! One of his great hits!
3. Down, Down, Down
Sort of funky energetic beat to this one. It's just a song about dancing out on the dance floor and grooving to
Composed by Patrick Cowley (a musical genius that collaborated with Sylvester), Sylvester and the music are the
stars in this place as he tells the listener that 'you are a star'. A good feel good song.
5. Body Strong
An electronic funky dance number.
6. I need you
Sylvester simply telling his lover in the song that he needs him.
7. Sell My Soul
A R & B and Gospel blend I think. The person will do anything for their lover even sell their soul.
8. Cry Me A River
A Gospel sounding song. Sylvester and his band really jam on this one.
9. Ooo Baby Baby
A soulful rendition of this song. It is beautiful sung by Sylvester and Two Tons o' Fun
10. Can't Stop Dancing
This song is what it says.
11. You are my friend
This sounds live. A soulful R & B tune.
This is a good album and you will enjoy the blending of voices of Sylvester and Two Tons, later to be
known as The Weather Girls - Martha Wash and Izora Armstead. Buy this if you love Sylvester!
