One can't blame the folks at Motown for their constant repackaging of the company's classic catalog--after all, songs that are 30+ years old have sold better than much of what passes for R&B these days--but even with its mighty legacy, this collection comes perilously close to fast profit at little thought. Can the searing social commentary of the Supremes' "Love Child" really be considered a love song? And I thought Diana Ross's "It's My Turn" was more about leaving and growing than loving, and in "Touch Me in the Morning," aren't they breaking up? Oh well, clearly love is in the ears of the beholder. Some of the songs contained are more, well love-ly, notably the sumptuous "All This Love" by DeBarge and Smokey Robinson's ever-elegant "Being with You." One might have semantic quarrels with the selections, but sonically, it's all good and it's nothing but something close to love. --Amy Linden

I've Never Been To Me

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Like the others I couldn't find Charlene's song anywhere then I found it on The Adventures Of Pricilla Queen of the Desert soundtrack, but this cd is MUCH better, it has some real good songs. Highly recommended!"

"I've been looking for Charlene's "I've never been to me" for years. I started doubting that it ever existed. The rest of the CD is a wonderful bonus! Amazon's the best."
Great Collection.

"I love this album. It has so many great songs. I bought this as a cassette back in the 80's and would love to have it in a CD. I haven't been able to find "With You I'm Born Again" by Billy Preston and Syreeta on any other collection. The only other place I've seen Charlene's "I've Never Been to Me" is on Volume 2 of Ladies of the 80's. They are both super albums and very different in music. I'd recommend both of these albums."
