This album is all you would ever want from an R&B singer. I have been listening to her albums for years and have never got tired of the joy of the lyrics and blues back beat, and this collection is just so good you have to join in. (I have had plenty of odd looks from other drivers.) If you want to find out what Denise LaSalle is about then this is the album to buy.

4.0 out of 5 starsWhat Soul Is All About16 Dec 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This cd is from Denise's mid to late 70's middle period. A talented songwriter and producer as well as heartfelt vocalist she penned 15 of the 17 tracks here. Most of them tell a story such as 'You oughta thank me' where she is telling another woman how she taught her husband everything 'a man should know'. There's country soul pain in 'Sit down and hurt' and dramatic southern soul in 'Too little in common to be lovers'. The sound is from real musicians so if you're tired of the computerised predictability of what passes for R'n'B today, do yourself a favour and pick this up. Denise is still recording and issued a superb cd 'This Real Woman' last year also available from Amazon. This lady has it all.

4.0 out of 5 starsDon't underrate her nice disco tunes11 Aug 2009
By Disco Buff - Published on Amazon.com
I admit her voice is highly suitable for soul ballads, but my quibble is that as her disco tunes such as ''Move Your Body'' and ''P.A.R.T.Y.'' during the same ABC & MCA years are also nice, I think they should have been included, too. This cd's line-up consists only of her slow tunes, which is a little boring.
