Great CD/Album
08/27/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great CD. I love ALL the songs. It gets you moving/dancing. I first bought this on cassette when it came out & doesn't play to well & had to have it again on a better recording media. I was so excited to find it on Amazon. I've called several music stores & they tell me they don't make it anymore. To make it better, it comes with 2 bonus tracks not found on the earlier tapes. Get it while you can cause it's hard to get it otherwise."
I still believe Brenda K Starr is terrific

"Brenda K Starr had a big hit in the late 80s with I Still Believe, but she captured my attention earlier with the song and video for Breakfast in Bed. It, like most of the songs on this album, is an upbeat, dance-inducing track that holds up quite well today. There is a definite 80s aura about this album, which I particularly love. The first five songs are stellar and bursting at the seams with energy and, in the case of the beautiful ballad I Still Believe, passion. Giving You All My Love is downright infectious in its appeal. Over and Over and Straight From the Heart are perfectly good songs, but they don't seem to match the drive infusing the rest of the album. I have always really enjoyed Drive Another Girl Home for its bouncing melody and what I consider golden oldies overtones; this song actually has a nice message to it, as well, as the boy Brenda is refusing to let drive her home has been drinking and/or doing drugs. The positive energy of this song is not in fact counteracted by the next track, as Brenda is All Tied Up "in your love" as opposed to anything else that might come to mind. I can't comment on the two bonus tracks because I have the original US version that is apparently impossible to find these days, but I can say that Brenda K Starr was a terrific singer who should have had a much more successful career than she seems to have enjoyed."
Fantastic

"I love this CD. I Don't have the Japanese import, I own the original US release - but the two bonus tracks on the Japanese one I have on 12" vinyl, so I know what these versions are like and they are fab.I can't believe how criminally over-looked Brenda K. Starr really is. Most of the people where I come from had never heard of her until I started playing her songs in my room on a daily basis. I own all of her 80's stuff, including 12" DJ promos of "Suspicion" and "Pickin' Up Pieces". I have the "I Want Your Love" LP, "By Heart" on CD and this one - my favorite. The best song on the album is "I Still Believe" - the way it was meant to be heard - sung by Brenda. Mariah Carey's rendition of the song wasn't as good as Brenda K. Starr's, but I don't want to be critical because Mariah covered it as a tribute to Brenda, and Mariah is infact doing the backing vocals in the original.All the songs on the album are fab - the other ones that stick out are "Over And Over", "What You See Is What You Get" and "Straight From The Heart" but that's me just naming a few; the whole album is fantastic.What the album is missing though is "Sweet Surrender" - a song Brenda K. Starr performed that was featured in the movie "License To Drive" and on the movie's soundtrack album (which is hard to find - but I have it). I personally think that would have been a delight for fans as a bonus track as well, because the album already features "You Should Be Loving Me" from the movie "She's Out Of Control" and "Sweet Surrender" is unavailable anywhere besides the "License To Drive" album, which is impossible to find these days. Nevertheless a fantastic album that proves Brenda K. Starr is a fine diva who we all should be listening to."
