"I have always liked the Teena Marie songs that pop up on the radio, like "Square Biz" and "I Need Your Lovin'". Based on those songs, I always assumed that she was just a "disco diva" with a great voice. Now that I have this CD, I realize that she is so much more than that! Her music runs the gamut from deep soul to funk to jazz and there is even a little bit of Latin influence on the JAZZY ballad "Portuguese Love". That song is probably the highlight of the CD, it is one of the most soulful songs I've ever heard. Her voice is unbelievable! And she also writes, arranges, produces, and plays multiple instruments on most of these songs! This CD has been remastered and includes the full long versions of all the songs (no radio edits!), so whether you are in the mood to dance or relax, this is the perfect CD."
Classic R&B from a classic artist

""Square Biz". "I Need Your Lovin". "Behind the Groove". "Deja Vu". "Ooh La La". "Lovergirl". (The last 2 can be found on "Lovergirl: The Teena Marie Story"). What do all of these songs have in common, besides being classics? They have all been sampled (or borrowed, whatever suits you best) for some of today's hits. This is a testament to Teena Marie's music. An incredible compilation of timeless hits, such as "Portugese Love" (get this CD if only for this song - the extended version is one of the best R&B ballads you'll ever hear), "Irons in the Fire", and, of course, "I Need Your Lovin'". The range of songs represented in this collection is no less than phenominal. This CD will become an instant classic in your collection if you're any fan of R&B, or of music, for that matter. This CD is one of my favorites, and when someone asks me to borrow it, it's like a Lay's commercial: "Get Your Own!!!!" So get this CD and allow Teena Marie to "lay the smack down" on your senses!"
