Excellent, but...

""Compassion" is one of Gary Taylor's most popular albums, but also one of the hardest to find. Originally a commercial hit when released on Virgin Records in 1988, "Compassion" was discontinued in the early '90s (after the inital enthusiasm waned and Taylor left Virgin) and brought back to print after numerous fan requests by Taylor's own record company, Morning Crew.Each song from the smart opening title track to the wonderful "My Heart Your Heart" merits a listen, especially the radio hit "Tease Me" (with sublime background vocals from R&B legends The Whispers) which appears twice, once in a remix (with more vocal improvisation) featuring Gerald Albright on saxophone. I have to give a fair warning to casual listeners. This may not be an album for everyone. It's a little repetitive, with an overabundance of synth-heavy mid-tempo tracks that tend to blend into each other. The nature of Mr. Taylor's production (he's everywhere on these tracks; from vocals to keys) may turn off those interested in a less singular vision of R&B. In additon, the keyboard reliance makes this album sound very dated (circa 1985)in spots. A little more natural instrumentation (which shows up in later Gary Taylor albums) would have turned this from excellent to classic."
YES! YES! YES!

"This was one of my favorite. This album was what made me a Gary Taylor fan! Tease Me, put me in the Mood for Love show the styling of a pure genius at work. Being a musician myself, I know real music from fake! This brother's music comes from the heart. One can become intoxicated from the smooth , quiet storm sounds of Gary Taylor. His uptempo songs are good, but Gary give me the ballards brother. As long as he keeps it real, Gary Taylor always have a true fan in me. You major record companies don't know what you're missing."

"I bought this on a cassette tape, and unfortunately when I went to cd's, the cassette somehow got into a box that I was giving away!!! I have been looking for this for some time. This was an incredible cassette!!!! My favorite is "Tease Me, as I heard the Whispers sing this, and found out that Gary Taylor wrote material for them!!!! I have all of Mr. Taylor's music on CD, and Compassion will complete my set!!! He has been a favorite of mine, and I wish that he would get the air play more often!!!!Thank you to Amazon for allowing me to purchase this jewel!!!"
