5.0 out of 5 stars Gem of an Album, 30 Dec 2013

This review is from: Billy Preston & Syreeta (Audio CD)
Always had this on vinyl and but had to get the more convenient CD format. Excellent performances and beautiful songs from two of the most underrated singers of the last century both of whom are sadly no longer with us. Great album for any lover of quality soul music. The only disappointment is the inclusion of the shortened 7" version of "Please Stay" as a bonus track as opposed to the original longer album version. Also the inclusion of 2 versions of the bonus "Go For It" album and 12" versions next to each other on the track-listing is not very thoughtful. Who really wants to listen to a 9 minute dated disco mix version followed by the album version? Other than these two minor issues, an album really worth adding to your collectoin.

4.0 out of 5 stars A refreshing surprise from Motown's soft-voiced soul siren, 12 Jan 2014

This review is from: Billy Preston & Syreeta (Audio CD)
Although never a big seller when it was released, the Motown Syreeta greatest hits compilation fairing much better in the UK market in 1980 on the back of the smash hit ballad With You I'm Born Again, this album is suprisingly good and melodic, the tunes being well crafted, catchy, with highly proffessional instrumentation. The tww voices - Syreeta's delicate and soft contalto perfectly matches that of Billy Preston and amply demonstrates why he was such a sought after musician and singer and makes you wonder why Syreeta, once a candidate to lead the Supremes after the departure of Diana Ross in 1970, was so overlooked and had little sucess in the charts in the US in the 1970s. Motown and soul fans will find this album romantic but not slushy, fresh and worth listening to time and time again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Born Again in Remastered Bliss!, 7 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Billy Preston & Syreeta (Audio CD)
I'm overwhelmed by the joyful beauty of this wonderful CD, which, from start to finish, draws your heart into a warm embrace of compelling, heartfelt performances from Billy and Syreeta. There is a tangible magic in these tracks, and you will find yourself captured by it, as I have been. I was particularly engaged by Hey You, Someone Special, A New Way To Say I Love You, One More Time For Love, Please Stay, What We Did For Love, One More Try, Just For You, and of course, With You I'm Born Again - and Billy's glorious instrumental of the same title! If you like Roberta and Donny, or Lionel and Diana, then you will love this.

I feel like I've found a treasured old friend with this CD. Well done to SoulMusic.Com (David Nathan and co) for breathing new life into this masterpiece of musical art. My only disappointment is that music (and talent)this good had to end. Buy this truly sensational CD, yesterday!!
