CD Reviews

Deb Gal Anthology Contains Every Chart Record Plus!!!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This long overdue Deborah Allen Anthology CD includes EVERY Country, Pop & AC charting single: the Jim Reeves duets, the RCA solo material, the Giant sides and MORE. The Anthology even contains the rare single version of the Artist Formerly Known As Prince-composed/produced TELEPATHY. Deborah Allen herself provided the liner notes and photos. The song sequence is rather confused and the CD booklet fails to list original release information and Billboard chart action. For complete track details (& a full Deborah Allen discography), see the Deborah Allen: BABY I LIED Home Page . The Anthology's Charles Calello-produced/arranged/conducted "Baby I Lied" shines. If only "You Can't Say No," "You Do It" or "When Two Worlds Collide" could have been included! But those cuts will certainly appear on Volume Two of the Deborah Allen Anthology. Watch for her new album on Curb, featuring "Is It Love Yet.""
Let me hype another one, please

"I love "Anthology", but I want to take this opportunity to remind readers of Deborah Allen's first and seminal album, "Delta Dreamland". I'm glad to see that Amazon is carrying it again, which it didn't for a while, and if it was ever, ever out of print, it surely didn't doesn't deserve to be. A few songs from "Delta" are on "Anthology", but they should all be, because it's a smoky, sensual, rocking and beautiful album that was heard by lots fewer people than should have. "Rock Me in the Cradle of Love" totally rocks, "Chain Lightning" is heartbreaking ... I just cannot and cannot and cannot understand why Deborah Allen is singing lounges and not stadiums - her voice is as magnificent as Reba's, only in a different way, and she has material that can make you melt into the ground."

"It's hard to describe a raging talent like Deborah Allen. Only in her early twenties, she snagged a contract with RCA dubbing duets with the deceased country great Jim Reeves. From there she went on to perform what was arguably the best crossover tune of the 80s--"Baby I Lied"--before jettisoning for New York and taking a shot at the pop music market with Prince as her writing bud ("Telepathy"). When that effort stalled, she jump-started her Nashville reputation with a couple of solid albums for Giant. Looking back, it rather seems she jinxed herself by trying to be a Sheena Easton clone. A shame, since she produced so much good stuff. Everything on "Anthology" is good, better than most of her country peers."
