"This is the most complete anthology released on Melba Moore to date. Just about every major hit of her career is represented here. This CD represents Melba in her finest hour.The 80's were especially kind to Melba. She had 2 number one songs and a slew of Top 20 hits during her stint at Capitol Records. Being all of the albums these songs were culled from are currently Out of Print, this is a real collector's item. The only disappointment was the total disregard for Melba's last Capitol recording "Soul Exposed". Nothing from that album is included on this CD. And I was really disappointed "When You Love Me Like This" from the "Read My Lips" LP was also passed over. Although it was only a minor hit for Moore, it was still important enough for them to have included here.If you are an 80's R&B connoisseur, this CD is a must for your collection."
Melba is a true diva!

"This compilation of Melba Moore's greatest hits is truely a work of art. Her vocals are impeccably strong and soothing. My favorites are "Falling" and "A Little Bit More", a duet with soulful singer Freddie Jackson. She will go down in history as one of the greatest black songtresses of all time. Where are you Melba? I have truly missed you; but until I hear from you again I will have this album close to my heart and in my CD changer!"
I still love this album 8 years since I bought the CD!

"Melba Moore is still one of my favorite singers. I loved that 1982 to 1990 period of hits that she had! This album has her best music! I had never heard the first hits from 1975, but they were quite impressive, the starting point to a successful music career. I think that the trio of albums she did in '85, '86 and '88 are her best and it's well represented on this album. The rocking Read My Lips, the nice It's Been So Long, A Little Bit More, I Can't Complain, Love the One I'm With and others. One song I never heard that was a hit was Living For Your Love and she sounds fabulous vocally on that one. The first Melba song I ever heard was You Stepped Into My Life, that Bee Gees remake, and I still love that song. She could do disco quite good on that one, even though her forte is midtempo to slow ballads. The songs are well assembled here to show her many vocal styles on them. They're not in chronological order, but they sound good together. Perhaps her best performance is Lean on Me, where she holds that note for 22 seconds or so! She has a way with that voice of hers! The same way with Falling. Last year, I saw her sing on Beyonce's movie The Fighting Temptations. She still has it today with her singing and I hope that her venture into gospel goes well too. This album covers her music career very strongly and it's just a true representation of her talent."
