This review is from: Love & Desire: Patrice Holloway Anthology (Audio CD)Patrice was the younger sister of Brenda Holloway. This collection pulls together all Patrice's Capitol sides, the handful of Motown tracks that had been released and 10 previously unissued Motown songs from the vaults. I love everything about this album. As usual Ace have produced a first class booklet which is stuffed with info about Patrice much of which was news to me and came as something of a shock. There's some lovely pix that I'd never seen before and the music of course is marvellous.
The Capitol singles comes first and it's so nice to have them altogether with my favourite being 'Stay With Your Own Kind' which was really ahead of it's time. Track 10 sees the start of the Motown songs the first four of which are well known. Her cover of Mary Well's 'My 2 Arms - You = Tears' is the first vaulted track. For a girl who at that time was only about 12-13 she does an amazing version. Another song that she covered was the Miracles 'All That's Good' which I knew better by Barbara McNair. The rest of the 'new' tracks are just as enjoyable especially 'Flippitty Flop', 'Crying' & 'Face In The Crowd'. My overall favourite track is 'Love Walked Right In' which to me is worth the price of the album. It's sad that Patrice did not live to see herself finally receive the recognition she deserved.
Thanks to Keith, Mick and all who helped make this dream come true.
