I bought the original version of the CD when it first came out, and I played it over and over again in my car for weeks, singing along and enjoying the fantastic duets and harmonies. When I saw that there was a Deluxe Version which included a DVD, I jumped at it. Knowing that it was coming in the mail, I gifted my original purchase to my brother who lives 350 miles away while I was on a business trip. Upon returning home, I opened my new package from Amazon and initially noticed that there was an additional track on the Deluxe Version, a song I'd never heard of called "Angel," which is a duet with Lionel and a singer I'd never heard of named Pixie Lott. I figured, "what the heck, it's an extra," and besides I didn't know the song "Just For You" (with Billy Currington) from the initial album, and it's quickly become a favorite. I popped the CD in the car stereo and went for a drive. On the second song, I immediately noticed something wrong. Jason Aldean wasn't singing on "Say You, Say Me." Turns out to be some guy named Rasmus Seebach. Glancing at the track list I realized that Tim McGraw was dumped from "Sail On" in favor of someone named Jill Johnson. I'm not saying that Seebach, Johnson, or Lott are bad singers. But if you wanted Aldean and McGraw, DO NOT BUY THE DELUXE EDITION! And the DVD portion doesn't contain music videos or anything. They're brief vignettes with Lionel and the artists who appear on the original disk. Nothing particularly special that you'll watch over and over. Thanks to Wikipedia I learned that Jill Johnson is a Swedish country/pop singer, Rasmus Seebach is a Danish singer/songwriter, and Pixie Lott is an English singer/songwriter. If you're European, this might rock your world!Read more ›

I have never had a reaction like this to an album- it is like reuniting a long lost friend. The combination of songs with specific artists is nothing short of genius, the harmonies are breathtaking, the memories it brings back.....This is by far my favorite album of all time. I have waited impatiently for this to be released and have not been disappointed.

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.

The past few years have really been very hard to hit in the soul with R&B music. Especially for Lionel Richie with the past several years with the tragic deaths of Don Cornelius from Soul Train whom tragically committed suicide, Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston each losing their lives due to extreme heartbreak and vices. But for Lionel, he has not really made a good album in quite awhile and just enjoying rolling out and performing the classics he has made with The Commodores and his solo works. His last albums 2006's Coming Home 2009's Just Go really was not very strong, but his songs have always came around for new generations to come and go. But when I heard that he was going to rework his classics to a whole new era with a twist, Country twang into it, I was very skeptical about it. To be honest with you, it actually works very well in his latest album, Tuskegee. Does it show with a new generation, yes it does.

Lionel Richie's latest album Tuskegee, is a twist of country music into his classics from his solo days and his era with The Commodores. Unlike the remake albums from the past several years from other artists, this one works absolutely well for Lionel Richie. The mixture of country artists bring new life into his classics work absolutely well including Dancing On The Ceiling with Rascal Flatts, Shania Twain and him on Endless Love, where Shania makes it her own in place of what Lionel already did with Diana Ross, Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles on Hello works like a charm and keeps it simple with guitar and heart and You Are with Blake Shelton work absolutely well. The other songs here don't feel overpowering, but maintain and showcase a strong and simple class of what made Lionel's music for over 40 years so special to so many generations by keeping it elequent and simple.

I'm 68 years old. Five decades ago I was a disc jockey on Top 40 radio, where we played lots of "one-hit wonders"--performers who got a hit record by luck or by fluke. It was the rare singer who could assemble enough hit songs to make a career of performing them. Even rarer were artists who could sustain their talent not just for a few years, but for decades.

And then there is Lionel Richie. The word "amazing" is ridiculously over-used today, but I am genuinely amazed that an artist who is just five years less-old than me has given the world an album that offers his hit songs performed BETTER than the original versions. In part, that is because they were great songs to begin with, but the other part is that Richie was glad to share the spotlight with some of the best Country (and Pop) artists of today. The result is music that is literally "timeless"--in many cases, better than his own original versions. How generous is that--to team up with other stars, in order to showcase the music at its best.

There is not a bad track on the album. It is worth Amazon's price just for "Deep River Woman" with Little Big Town, "Dancing on the Ceiling" with Rascal Flatts, and "All Night Long" with the perennial party animal Jimmy Buffett. This isn't just a "My Greatest Hits" album. This is an "Even Better Than My Hits" Album. If you like music with soul and heart and loving attention to getting it right, download this one and enjoy the goosebumps.
