CD Reviews

Rare Gold Release from a Great Artist!
J. Thng | Singapore | 07/05/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Melissa's Gold album is now finally available on CD . The first reviewer complained about the poor sound quality which is not entirely untrue (the 1st track sounds pretty bad but the rest appears ok). Compared to the Japanese reissues and her recent definite collection from Arista, this CD has average quality but I wouldn't exactly call it poor. It is still digital recording and a classic collection. There are many great collaborations here with Melissa and her good friend Carol Bayer Sager - resulting in some beautiful songs such as the should-have-been-a-hit WE'VE GOT TIME, STEVE'S WONDER, THIS LADY'S NOT HOME TODAY and her big beautiful ballad hit, MIDNIGHT BLUE which was #1 on Adult Contemporary and #6 on Billboard pop. Also included here are some of my many MM's favourites - JUST TOO MANY PEOPLE (#2 AC and #30 POP), written by Melissa and producer Vinci Ponica (a protege of Richard Perry) and I GOT EYES (by Melissa Manchester). Others include the swingy PARTY MUSIC, LOVE HAVIN' YOU AROUND - a soulful Steve Wonder and Syreeta composition, and Randy Newman's I DON'T WANT HEAR IT ANYMORE and ITS GONNA BE ALRIGHT. This is Melissa's at her peak of song writing and a great debut for Arista. It's a pity none of her Arista albums are released in USA except for this."
Her Best Work!

"Her best album finally comes to CD. This is the first album I ever bought, originally for the hits 'Just Too Many People' and 'Midnight Blue' but I fell in love with all of the songs, especially Randy Newman's 'I Don't Want to Hear it Anymore' and Melissa's 'This Lady's Not Home Today' The quality of the CD is great and they also reprinted the liner notes. I can't wait for the rest of the early albums to be put on CD (finally!)"
Classic Melissa Manchester

"Arguably her finest album ever, this includes Melissa's remarkable version of Randy Newsman's "I Don't Want to Hear It Anymore," Stevie Wonder's "Love Having You Around" as well as Melissa's classic "Midnight Blue," "Just Too Many People," "Party Music," "This Lady's Not Home Today," "I Got Eyes" -- this is one of the singing-est, soulful-est white women ever!"
