5.0 out of 5 stars UK Gold 9 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD
Short and sweet for this CD. "Livin' in the light" for me is the peak of this CD . However, the rest is just pure soul sung beautifly. I can listen to this over & over again. Its 24 years since I first heard this CD and its still being played. Enjoy....

5.0 out of 5 stars Rare Gold 6 Feb 2005
By OmarZahirO. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It's a shame for some people to have what they have and not kno how precious it is. It's also a blessing to others that these people exist. I found this rare piece at a used CD store for under 10.00 and had to get it. She came before Erykah Badu and was involved with drawing up the bluprints for what is labeled NEO SOUL. Caron Wheler with Soul II Soul danced to a beat of their own drum and we all danced with them. Soul II Soul continued to dance after her departure and they still remain in contact. It took me a good three months after getting this CD to listen past track three. The whole CD is well worth listening to but i was just taken way back when i got it by "Living In The Light" and "Blu (Is The Colour Of Pain)". If you get a chance get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soul, Stagger & Shine 17 Oct 2007
By David Avender - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In 1990, when my needle hit vinyl for the last time in my spirit world, UK BLAK knocked the brown socks off of my skinny white feet. I could not be still; and from that point on, ROCK bands with their awful-long screeching guitar solos (with or without bloody violin bows), & long-haired, head-bobbin' heavy metal bands were all dead to me. My sound was now BLAK.

If the task of music is to inspire movement and dance, Caron Wheeler's first independent CD - outside of her most gratifying work with the SOUL II SOUL project - became the primer sound for all to follow. As Don Cornelius shall be my witness, I will find not a single mislaid note on this UK BLAK for there is not a flaw to be found.

The beats thunder from track to track with the smooth seducing voice that is Caron's alone. While produced with extroverted self-assurance, the beats are, to a song, beautifully tight and clean. They never combine to create that miserable cacophonic mess where lesser musicians find cover to hide their feeble-fingered elementary musicianship. The live instrumentation is up to the high standards of Caron Wheeler's voice.

But all of this authentic beauty is mere bedding for one of the most precious sounds I've ever heard in my life. Caron Wheeler elevates this album to a masterpiece; and as such, it is as fresh this moment as it when near 20 odd past. Her voice is rock solid as it rings out those sweet words. Her voice is the principal element that give UK BLAK its seamless consistency and perfected, unblemished beauty.

Come to the party well-rested and bare-footed. You WILL DANCE, for I have heard nothing to top the sound of Caron Wheeler's UK BLAK.

5.0 out of 5 stars REAL MUZIK HEADZ KNOW!!...This CD Is Classic!! 3 Nov 2006
By HE WHO FUNKS BEHIND THE ROWS!! - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Though it's rare to be able to find this CD now,

because it's (stupidly!) out of print...

(Capitol / EMI are you listening?)

You will discover a rare treasure here for those

of you who were either not around or who slept

on this CD when it first came out in May of 1990.

"UK BLAK", as one of the other reviewers said,

was one of the prototypical albums for what would

later become neo-soul and is filled with some great

vocal performances by Caron Wheeler, who is one of the great

song stylists of the last 15 yrs., but who absolutely

gets no props at all!

The stand-outs that still hold up today are

"Livin' In The Light", "Blue Is The Colour Of Pain",

"Somewhere" and "Don't Quit".

The other songs are still listenable today but the

production is very late 80's / early 90's.

I used to bang this joint big-time back then,

but a lot of people weren't feeling it

and it kinda got lost-in-the sauce!

But make no errors!...This album is a classic

and a lot of people have re-discovered it in recent years.

It's a keeper if you're lucky enough to find it.

I hope Capitol / EMI re-releases a remastered version

with the new 24-bit technology and maybe some bonus tracks.

Caron Wheeler gave birth to Erykah Badu, N'Dea Davenport, Floetry,

Zhane, India Arie, Laylah Hathway, Angie Stone and countless

others who came later in her wake and borrowed her

vocal licks and riffs.

This album is a testimony to her soulfulness,

rich fluidity and creativity!!---Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard-to-Find Masterpiece 9 Dec 2009
By C. Allison - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Luckily ran across this CD during its original release; it's the bomb, bottom line. If you like that Soul II Soul sound & vibe, Caron's album is more of the same, just with her own touch.
