CD Reviews

If you R&B and hip-hop
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you love R&B and recent hip-hop samples make you long for the original versions, this CD is for you. It has a very mellow groove, undisturbed except for the more raucous Ohio Players track (Fopp). The 15-song collection contains certain classics that can never be overplayed: Sweet Thing by Chaka Khan & Rufus, Cruisin by Smokey Robinson, and For the Love of You by the Isley Brothers; but also the rarer Riding High by Faze-O and Be Thankful for What You've Got by William DeVaughn. The CD is great to listen to on a sunny afternoon at home or behind the wheel. The Al Green track's intricate opening beat was sampled by Notorious BIG. Other songs have been sampled and re-made, but these are the ORIGINALS. You won't be disappointed!"

"I love this CD. I never knew how much I had missed this music until I held these butter smooth grooves all togther on the same CD. With the exception of that track from the Ohio Players, All you need to do, is play this CD and drive, relax, meditate or do whatever and this well put together gelled together tracks will keep you floating forward. I have these songs on other CD's but it's the culmination of these master pieces back to back that makes this CD a true work of art"

"Can't say enuff 'bout this. I kinda heard alot of songs being samples off this compilations incl. "Riding High" by Faze-O (once sampled by my fav. rap group EPMD), "Mister Magic" by Grover Washington Jr. (R.I.P.) (sampled by the group Soul 4 Real for a rmx of "Candy Rain") Playing Your Game, Baby by Barry White (R.I.P.) (sampled by that hip-hop group Black Moon for "Got Cha Open"), etc. I mean alot of artists sample those songs together everybody from Mary J., Aaries, Common, Will Smith, DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, D'Angelo, among others. I wish they had available anywhere by goin to,, or any other used music store to see if this available or not. They pull it up one day on this website. But good compiliation and definitely a must to include along w/ sum ol' school R&B and jazz."
