Product Description

Product Description

* STEPHANIE MILLS first came to prominence in 1975 with her performance as Dorothy in the stage version of THE WIZ on Broadway. Although she had released two albums in the mid-70s it was the teaming of Mills with JAMES MTUME and REGGIE LUCAS that made her a bonafide R&B star.

* The team's first release on 20th Century was WHAT CHA GONNA DO WITH MY LOVIN' in 1979. The title track reached the R&B Top 10 and became an instant classic. In addition, the album also spawned two massive club hits in the form of PUT YOUR BODY IN IT and YOU CAN GET OVER.

* WHAT CHA GONNA DO WITH MY LOVIN' also featured Stephanie's reading of PEABO BRYSON's FEEL THE FIRE which to this day is on heavy rotation on the Quiet Storm radio format in the US.

* This expanded reissue features six bonus tracks, including three original Disco 12" remixes and BETTER THAN EVER, Stephanie's single release from the soundtrack of the 1979 comedy STARTING OVER.

* BBR is very proud to present WHAT CHA GONNA DO WITH MY LOVIN', in full, expanded form, complete with extensive liner notes that feature interviews along with added bonus material.

5.0 out of 5 stars A CLASSIC! 7 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is Stephanie's first lp recorded for 20th Century way back in 1979,and since that date has become the soul album that i have listened to the most..MY ALL-TIME FAVOURITE SOUL ALBUM.
It's 8 original tracks were nearly all written by (at the time)hot team of Mtume and Lucas who also produced the lp.Amongst it's delights are the soul classic title track which was thrown away in the UK as the B-Side to the great uptempo "Put Your Body In It.this magical coupling inexplicably not charting,the same fate shared by the second single,the storming 'You Can Get Over',all three tracks represented by their brilliant 12" versions also, on this excellent BBR reissue.
Ballad lovers are catered for by an amazing version of Peabo Bryson's 'Feel The Fire' and the beautiful 'You and I' and for the midtempo crowd there are the lovely 'Deeper Inside Your Soul' and my personal fave 'Starlight'.
The Great British public may have ignored the lp and singles at the time but it's stature has grown over the decades and i am ecstatic that this BRILLIANT lp is finally available (at a reasonable price;it's only been released as a wallet busting Japaenese issue)for the masses to savour.GIVE YOUR EARS A TREAT.

4.0 out of 5 stars been waiting too long! 28 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD
this has been out of print for way too long. a great soul/disco album that holds up. most of it (including those knock out classic singles) still bring a joy and shivers up the spine. her voice is in top form. the extra tracks add to the package!

1.0 out of 5 stars Edited version, once again 21 July 2012
Format:Audio CD
Once again, BBR provides us here with an edited, early-fade-out version.
While "Don't Stop Dancin'" runs a full 3:45 on the vinyl LP, it was cropped to 3:33 on this CD release.
Stay away from these unfinished products!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful remastering of this classic album 9 Jan 2012
By barry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It has been hard to get Stephanie Mill's early albums on cd remastered with worthy sound. There have been other releases of this album and the sound quality has just always been off. But leave it to BBR. They are taking all the classic 70s and early 80s soul albums and remastering them with exsquisite detail. This first solo album by Stephanie is a true classic and it sounds as crisp and clear now as when I heard the original vinyl. The songs are amazing from the title track WHAT CHA GONNA DO to the tour de force sensual FEEL THE FIRE and dance tracks YOU CAN GET OVER and PUT YOUR BODY IN IT. Each track here is a hit. There is no filler. Stephanie Mills possesses a rare gift in her vocal ability. She has a strong powerful voice that can belt strong or intimately caress each note gently. Her octave range is amazing and whatever style of song from ballad to disco there is always a strong emotional intensity in each song. YOU AND I is another splendid song that is a slow and romantic torch song.

BBR delivers this superb album with the excellent remastering as well as extensive liner notes and 6 bonus tracks. There are dance versions of the hits as well as BETTER THAN EVER from the film STARTING OVER. The bonus tracks themselves are worth a purchase here. The 12" remixes show just how superb the remastering is. Each instrument is heard separately for pure instrumental magic. The sound is crisp, clean and intimate. And Stephanie's voice comes through so crystal clear that it sends shivers. These songs have never sounded so good. It's great to see that BBR has not lessened the high caliber of the quality of their cd releases in any way. This cd gets my highest recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent soul/disco CD 27 Dec 2012
By Jeff Pearlman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This 1979 CD contains three great hits, which thanks to the generous bonus tracks appear here in multiple versions: the #22 pop breakthrough "Whatcha Gonna Do With My Lovin'" and the Top Ten disco hits "You Can Get Over" and "Put Your Body In It". The sizzling "You Can Get Over" sounds especially great on this disc in its 12" and 7" versions. Original LP closer "Don't Stop Dancin'" is another fine disco song. The rest of the songs are ballads with which Mills does a fine job. There is not a weak cut on this CD.

The record was also a launching pad for producers James Mtume and Reggie Lucas, the latter of whom is quoted extensively in the liner notes by Christian John Wikane. Wikane has done the liner notes in other CDs I've bought on the BBR label and have never disappointed. Photos and original trade paper ads in the booklet are also nice additions.

I really love the fact that classic disco-era CDs are being reissued by BBR and hope this keeps going. I recommend this highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Shines Like A Precious Jewel 20 Dec 2011
By Alex Litvak - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
How do you review a masterpiece? Stephanie Mills' 1979 release "WHAT CHA GONNA DO WITH MY LOVIN?" is a musical marvel. Combining the elements of funk, Disco, R&B and Quiet Storm ballads, the album embraces the very best the aforementioned genres have to offer. Benefitting greatly from the crisp production work and rich songwriting skills of James Mtume and Reggie Lucas, the stage is set for La Mills to demonstrate her brilliant singing talents and the Diva comes through with show stopping results. The title track is marvel, a perfect slice of 1979 Disco with Ms. Mills' voice having the goose bumps effect here. The haunting background vocals are just as effective, as is the perfect musical arrangement here. YOU CAN GET OVER, PUT YOUR BODY IN IT and DON'T STOP DANCING are all great dance songs with a high funk element added to all of them. While these tracks are perfect dance floor anthems, they are in no way just disco numbers. Take a closer listen to PUT YOR BODY IN IT and YOU CAN GET OVER-both are funky and hard hitting!

Ms. Mills is also an effective balladeer as evidenced by richly melodic and romantic DEEPER INSIDE YOURLOVE, FEEL THE FIRE, STARLIGHT and YOU AND I. Every note in these ballads is perfectly sung. There is no filler on this album. A must for every Stephanie Mills fan and for fans of R&B.

As is the case with every BBR re-master, this was a job exceptionally well done. The sound quality in this re-master is amazing. Included here are the 12" Remixes of YOU CAN GET OVER, PUT YOUR BODY IN IT and WHAT CHA GONNA DO WITH MY LOVIN. Added as a bonus here also is the rare BETTER THEN EVER from the 1979 film Starting Over, a great track that fits in perfectly with the rest of the album. Special mention must also be made of the excellent, informative liner notes by Christian John Wilkane, which include a great interview with Reggie Lucas. This one is a winner all around, 32 years after its initial release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! 23 Jan 2013
By G. D Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I bought this some time ago. It's good to take something that you're used to hearing on a record player and pump it in your car. Stephanie is just a good, solid, clean singer. Very few of her type left today.
