The Sylvers Greatest Hits...

"I have a sentimental weakness for this group, as they made an impact upon my teenage soul, back in the early through mid 1970's. I play their music, look in the mirror and see what I was, what life was, and life to me was sound. The only reason why I won't give this collection 5 stars is simple. Where's the song "Keep on, Keeping on"? You can't find it anywhere. I can't be the only one waiting on the "Showcase" LP to be released to CD (hopefully re-mastered!). My favorite tunes on this collection are the following:
1. Through the love in my heart (Nice mid paced song!)
2. Fools Paradise (70's pop song with a message)
3. Wish that I could talk to you baby! (Nice pop ballad!)
4. Misdemeanor (Foster's hit - Need I say more!)
If you can get it at a good price, I say, buy it!"
Has the good stuff not found elsewhere

"While no cds currently exist of an actual Sylvers album (such as "Something Special" from 1976), this Cd is good as it contains the Sylvers tunes that people loved, but cannot find on most such compliations. Namely "Fools Paradise." the lovely 1973 summer hit "Misdemeanor" (credited to brother Foster, hiphop fans will recognize this as the sample for the DOC's "Getting Funky"), and one of their last hits, the wonderful chant "Don't Stop-Get Off", one of those seventies tunes known onkly to us who were there at the time. Most Sylvers cds contain the familiar stuff like "Hot Line, "Boogie Fever," and "Cotton Candy," etc. but this has what is usually left out. Get it while you can!"
The best Sylvers compilation

"the Sylvers were that Family Group that was somewhere between the Jackson five and Debarge. and just like those Groups they had a Soulful vibe about them that was felt and this compilation captures all of there many hits. this is by far the best overall compilation that has all of there hits. all of the jams and other cuts are on this set. the rich soulful harmonys and the tight Production that also captures there vocals are all here."
