"IF YOU ARE A TRUE STEPHANIE MILLS FAN -I KNOW YOU HAVE THIS COLLECTION-IF YOU ARE NOT, I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS SMASH COLLECTION FEATURING EARLY RELEASES FROM THE NOW DEFUNCT 20TH CENTURY FOX RECORDS AND CASABLANCA RECORDS AND FILMWORKS.STEPHANIE WILL TRULY DAZZLE YOU WITH 12 INCH VERSIONS OF THE LUCAS/MTUME PRODUCED "WHATCHA GONNA DO WITH MY LOVIN" FEATURING A BEAUTIFUL VOCAL PERFORMANCE FROM MS.MILLS-DITTO FOR THE HEAVY BASS LOADED "PUT YOUR BODY IN IT" AND DON'T FORGET THE MIDTEMPO GROOVE "SWEET SENSATION" THESE 3 HITS ALONE SET THE TONE FOR THE ALBUM, HOWEVER MILLS IS KNOWN FOR HER LOVE SONGS AND SHE DELIVERS POWERHOUSE PERFORMANCES ON "STILL MINE" "YOU AND I" AND THE SPINE TINGLING "FEEL THE FIRE". THERE ARE OTHER GEMS SUCH AS HAWK WOLINSKI PRODUCED " THE MEDICINE SONG" AMAZING VOCAL PERFORMANCE ON TOP OF HEAVY SYNTHESIZERS ARE SHOWCASED, UNFORTUNATELY, THIS IS NOT THE 12INCH VERSION BECAUSE IT IS AWESOME WITH A WICKED DUB VERSION TO MATCH, BUT THIS ALBUM VERSION SHINES AS WELL-THE CLASSIC "NEVER KNEW LOVE LIKE THIS BEFORE" EARNED MILLS A GRAMMY FOR BEST FEMALE R&B PERFORMANCE. OTHER STANDOUTS "TWO HEARTS" W/TEDDY PENDERGRASS, STARLIGHT, THE PRINCE WRITTEN "HOW COME YOU DON'T CALL ME ANYMORE" COULN'T BE MORE SOULFUL-PUT THIS CD ON ...PRESS PLAY..AND LET IT RIDE!!!! ORDER IT TODAY...WHILE IT LASTS."

"After listening to the CD, I realized that most of the greatist hits are never really hits. I always manage to discover a gem on a album or cd. I originally purchased this CD for 'Feel the Fire' and 'Never Knew love like this' although another favorite song 'Learn to respect the power of love' was missing. Well, any I discovered to previously unknown Gems since Ms. Mills was singing way before my time. The first one was apparently very popular, 'Starlight.' A favorite rapper(NAS, 'Black Girl Lost' on the "It was written album" of mine sampled the beat.) so I immediately fell in love with that one. But accidently while trying to find 'Feel the fire' in the dark I discovered track 12, 'You and I.' Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful songs I've ever encountered in my 28 years on earth. It shows the full depth of Stephanie's skills and vocal range plus James Mtume's talents as a producer/arranger are showcased on this and most of the songs on the compilation. This CD is a must buy for any true R&B fan and Stephanie Mills fan"
Good old stephanie

"good selection on this cd, but I wished that "You can't run from my love" was included in the 12" version. Oh yeah, for Pierre:
the 12" version of "Medicine Song" is available on various compilation cd's."
