Where is N'Dea When You Need Her?
(3 out of 5 stars)

"All but the most loyal fans of the British acid jazz group will be disappointed in this ten track set. This is largely due to the uninspired vocals found on several cuts.The CD starts off okay with the duet "Rest of Me," between Jay Ella Ruth and longtime Heavies band member Jan Kincaid. "Put Yourself in My Shoes" follows featuring the bland vocals of Linda Muriel. She also sings lead on the Heavies first UK single, "Got to Give" and the original version of "Dream Come True," which both pale in comparison to N'Dea Davenport's later versions. Fortunately, the album also features three instrumental cuts, which are all good.In short, ORIGINAL FLAVA is a so-so album. For individuals who aren't familiar with the group, they would be better served by checking out their other albums first. However, if you are already a Heavies fan (in particular, if you dig their instrumental tracks), this CD is definitely worth consideration."
An N'Dea-less, more laid back heavies cd!!!
(4 out of 5 stars)

"upon first listening, i was disappointed because i was use the n'dea davenport heavies. but after a couple of listens, it has become by second favorite--after remixes & rare grooves. it's a much more laid back cd, more for relaxin' at your house as opposed to the dance, high-energy bnh cd's. this cd puts more emphasis on the musicians, and is definitely worth collecting."
