"Although this movie came out in 1991, this is a classic. The movie introduced us to relative newcomer and now Oscar Winner Halle Berry. The soundtrack which will soon be a classic, introduced us to the vocal talents of a young unknown backup singer at Uptown Records named Mary J. Blige. The dance track on this album is by Jeff Redd who introduced Mary to Andre Harrell who was the head of Uptown records. Jeff Redd is also the individual who received the demo tape from Mary's stepfather on which Mary sang Anita Baker's "Caught up in the Rapture" at the Galleria Mall in White Plains, N.Y. The A&R person at Uptown who was assigned to work with Mary was Sean"P.Diddy" Combs. Its amazing how history interconnects. The other tracks on this album are average. LLCool J, Stephanie Mills, Grand Puba, Jodeci, and Heavy D are the next quality tracks after Mary and Jeff. This will be a collector's item soon."
