5.0 out of 5 stars Loleatta Holloway - A Vocal Sensation, 25 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Anthology (Audio CD)
Loleatta sadly passed away this week and will be missed by soul and disco fans alike. Whilst this fantastic double CD collection does not include Cry To Me, Loleatta's pre-disco heart-wrenching ballad, there are plenty of knockout performances of the smooching or dancing kind to keep you engaged throughout this truly awesome Anthology. It captures the essence of this formidable, gospel-tinged singer, who put more life into a single song than most singers do in their entire catalogue. Highlights include, We're Getting Stronger, which was recently sampled by Whitney Houston on her Million Dollar Bill hit, Worn Out Broken Heart, the amazing Hit and Run, Runaway, Good Good Feeling, the gigantic Love Sensation - notoriously sampled and taken to the top of the UK charts by Black Box, My Way, Dreamin, and What Now. Frankly, there isn't a bad song in this collection, including Loleatta's gob-smacking version of I've Been Loving You Too Long. This astounding anthology is worth every pound in your pocket. Buy this Anthology today, your ears, heart and feet will appreciate it. There are many singers, but there is only one Loleatta Holloway. Grace Jones once said, "I can sing, but I'm no Loleatta Holloway". Rest in peace, dear lady of song and dance, and thank you for the music and the kiss... You're now an amazing angel.
