5.0 out of 5 stars A truly unique voice,gorgeous songs !! You must have IT !!, 22 May 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Baby Come To Me: The Best Of Regina Belle (Audio CD)
Regina Belle is one of the most acclaimed vocalists in the world and she has been performing and regularly recording on the cutting edge since the late '80s.
This collection is an excellent introduction to this fantastic singer's catalogue, although a couple of her key singles, "Please Be Mine" and her first duet with Peabo Bryson, "Without You," were left off in favor of a few non-hits.
Regina is a superior vocalist of sophisticated,stylish jazz-tinged Soul/R&B music.
The highlights on this set include her signature song 'Baby Come To Me' and the haunting " Show Me The Way" , the gorgeous "If I Could" (which should have been a much bigger hit than it was, if we just compare it to the cover by Barbra Streisand on her album 'Higher Ground' and to the latest,terrible version by Celine Dion on her latest CD ' Miracle'), her take on Teddy Pendergrass' "Love TKO," the Dianne Warren-penned "All I Want Is Forever" (with James "J.T." Taylor), and her biggest hit to date, "A Whole New World (Aladdin's Theme)," again with Peabo Bryson.
' What Goes Around ' and the medley ' Someday We'll All Be Free/Save The Children ' are true jazz pearls.
There is not too much information on the singer or the songs in terms of liner notes, but at least the chart positions of her hits are included. Save for the two omissions, this set provides a good representation of the singer's best work, and it will have to do until the day when a more complete, two-disc retrospective is issued.
Some excellent songs from her last releases should be imperatively added : 'I Am The One ' ( the hidden track ) from ' Believe In Me ', ' Johnny's Back ' and ' From Now On ' from ' This Is Regina ' and the magnificent ' Just The Two Of Us ' from the tribute album ' To Grover With Love ',where she sings like a goddess the Grover Washington,jr- Donny Hathaway hit, with the help of gorgeous solos by jazz greats like George Duke and Steve Cole.
