CD Reviews

Never thought I'd hear an album like this
David Spanswick | Brighton United Kingdom | 06/26/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this, unheard, as the combination of these artists seemed so perfect and I was so right. The CD has hardly been off my machine since it arrived. A true little prize.
I have always loved Valerie Simpson since I heard her solo album a gazillion years ago and now totally unavailable(unless there is somebody out there knows different?!) Maya Angelou's voice is one of planet Earth's most prized possessions I would listen to her reading the telephone directory. This combination which probably should not work, so works. The counterpoint between Maya's spoken words and A&S soulful vocals must find its way into your collection. This is a true must-have album"

"I purchased the CD in 1997 and played it so much, it wore out. I am desperately looking for another copy. I can't understand why it didn't get any airtime on R& B stations. Ashford and Simpson are one of the premier songwriting teams of all times. With Maya thrown into the mix, this CD was something special. This one should have "Been Found" by a wider audience."
Melodious Poetry of the First Order

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Legendary songwriting team of Ashford and Simpson and literary luminary Maya Angelou have woven a seamless blend of lyric and music in this most satisfying release. From the opening strains of the title cut to the last beat, "Been Found" makes the listener experience every carefully crafted nuance, every soulful phrase, and every stimulating word that borders on the uplifting and the sensuous. Ms. Angelou's distinctive voice is complemented by the passionate vocals of the husband and wife team who always sound as if they are really soulmates for life. I cannot believe that this four-year-old composition did not spawn a follow up. It certainly deserved Grammy recognition upon its initial release. Although all tracks are suberb, the cuts "Where We Come From," "What If," and the final "Why Shouldn't It Be Me" are reminiscent of the classic tunes penned by the couple for themselves and many other artists. Why they aren't being utilized by contemporary singers is one mystery to me. I guess there isn't "Nothing Like the Real Thing.""
