Excellent Overview Of Jennifer

"I was truly excited when this cd first came out in 1996, I had to have it and purchased it the day it came out. For years all I had from Jennifer is the soundtrack to "Dreamgirls" and the album (cd) "Get Close To My Love" which I found at a record store in the cut-out bin selling for around four dollars. This cd of her work has been in demand from the fans for years, I'm glad Geffen gave in. "The Best Of Jennifer Holliday" samples work from her soundtrack work with "Dreamgirls" and her three solo studio albums with Geffen and a track from her only album with Arista, "I'm On Yor Side," which was the album's title also. After this track the cd is filled with remixes which aren't bad, there was a cd single released from this album, the radio remix of "No Frills Love" with a previously unreleased song made "b" side, "Up Jumped Love," a mid-tempo ditty produced by Mtume. The cd could have been filled out with longer remixes or full-length original remixes in the like of "No Frills Love," the original 12" mix is an amazing display of synths and vocal tricks. Be that as it may, Geffen did release radio remixes to update this collection, they could have simply made this a collection in the way of "20th Century Masters," a much shorter collection featuring album cuts not found here. The bottom line here is Jennifer is not much represented by studio work, to say the performances here are all stellular would be redundant, this is a great representation of her work."
The best female vocalist of all time!

"It's unfortunate that Jennifer Holliday never attained the attention she really deserves. In MY eyes, she is one of the best singers that ever lived! Due to the lack of material, perhaps, is why Jennifer never got as big as Whitney Houston or Aretha Franklin. But when it comes to VOCAL QUALITY, she's better than the two I mentioned COMBINED :-)But listen to "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going", "Come Sunday", or "I'm On Your Side" and you'll be convinced that this woman has the most beautiful and powerful vocals ever heard! Gosh, she could move MOUNTAINS with her vocals!"
Calling the album "The Best" is an understatement!

"I've been a fan of Jennifer Holliday since the debut of the phenomenal single "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" from the "Dreamgirls" soundtrack. There was (and still is) something about that song that just cuts deep into your soul; the passion she puts into that song lets even the most casual of Holliday listeners know that this lady means business! "I Am Changing", another "Dreamgirls" track is a glorious song of self-empowerment, affirming the indomitable will of the human spirit. "I Am Love", from the "Feel My Soul" album is simply a revelation; listen to that song and you can just TELL that Jennifer's soaring.Beautiful ballads aside, Jennifer also let's her legions of fans know that she can also rock the house with the best of them. Dance tracks like "Just Let Me Wait", "No Frills Love", and my personal favorite, "Early Warning" (from the Love to Infinity Sessions) can make you work up a sweat just standing (or sitting) still! This can't be Jennifer's "best", because I know that there is still more to come from this talented and formidable singer, and I for one eagerly look forward what's ahead!"
