CD Reviews

Start of A Romance was actually my "start" with Skyy
J. Batchelor | Memphis, TN USA | 05/29/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this CD, 'cause beyond their hit "Call Me" and one of their last CDs released in the late '80's, "Start of A Romance", I really didn't know much about Skyy and hadn't heard of them before then.

After listening to their "best", I see why that song and last album were my only introductions to the group. Not saying that they weren't good in their own right, it's just that their "best" failed to move me or get me into them as a now "legendary" act who's music has lived on beyond them.

Like most acts of the '70's and '80's, I was too young and wasn't allowed to buy or listen to allot of secular music in my household growing up, but had heard of or briefly enjoyed certain artists thru MTV and BET's Video Gold via video/TV and now that I'm older, I'm exploring allot of the great songs and "retired" artists of those time who aren't on the scene much these days, however their music lives on thru radio, classic videos, vinyl, cassettes and now CD and MP3.

In short I'll say, Skyy's "best" didn't live up to or surpass any expectations and unfortunately songs from their best and last commercial LP, Start of A Romance, wasn't included here. That's a shame."
Everybody Wants 'Real Love' & More from Skyy!!
chakasworld | Atlanta, GA United States | 01/19/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Skyy was no joke, and they had quite a few jams from 1979 to 1992, but the various compilations (including THIS 'Greatest Hits' CD) don't cover all the bases. IMO, Skyy's 'Greatest Hits' is merely a good compilation for novice Skyy fans, and for some reason, it's out of print!! Like many serious fans, I agree that the classic slow jam 'Real Love' should've been included here, so I had to do it myself. Here's the tracklisting of my personal 'Ultimate Skyy' CD, which should've been released by the record company...

Call Me -- First Song I Ever Did the Dog To with A Girl
Mista3rdLeg | NYC | 05/09/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I'll never forget the song, Call Me. I was in middle school probably 5th or 6th grade. Around that time I was allowed to attend the gym jams on Friday nights in my little hick town. I remember doing the dog with the cutest girl in the whole school, Natasha Cherry. Every time I hear this song it brings back memories of a simpler time in the early 80s - musty gym, acting grown, foggy schoolbus windows, tight Jordache jeans, and puberty. Long story short. I have one of their greatest hits CD's but only listened to Call Me. One Saturday night while home with nothing to do I checked out the remaining tracks. Man did I sleep on them. About 80% of the tracks are first rate but I just don't remember them getting much airplay on AM or FM stations back in the day."
