"I had this album on a cassette tape that I borrowed and it had been destroyed and I only remembered one song (which I had the title only half right). I loved the song 'Yo Mister' which I thought was Hey Mister. I didn't know the name of the tape or remember any of the other songs, but in any event, just getting the Mister right helped me to find this album that I had been searching for for two years. This song is so eerie, that only Prince could compose it and Patti could do justice in performing it. I love the whole album. It really gets me energized like a 20 year old, and I'm 57. Just get the album and see for yourself."
Patti and Prince -- Funk To The Highest Power

"So it's been ten years since this collection was released, and by no means has it collected any dust on my shelf. It is a constant in the CD rotation, most notably for the funk.When I first heard "Yo Mister", I almost shook my car silly rocking in the seat. This was Prince at some of his best funk, and Patti doing something quite different that we'd heard before. The combination of "Yo", and "Love 89" are enough to make this disc a must-have for you.Other hot tracks are "If You Asked Me To", which is good on CD, but SOOOOOO much better live in concert. Also, "Be Yourself" gets high marks. Again, the live performance will make you believe.In fact, the real joy of Patti can only be experienced live. Patti, by her own admission, feeds so much on the emotion of the crowd, and us to hers, that it's impossible to capture raw Patti on CD. Unless of course, you get 1992's Live! or 1998's "Live-One Night Only". If you get the latter, make sure it's the boxed set with the video....she sings with LUTHER VANDROSS on the video, but not on the CD."
Great work from patti and Prince

"This is a terrific CD. I bought it originally as a cassette when it first came out and have since replaced it as a CD amd bought the maxi-CD of Yo, Mister. Prince co-wrote that one and years later I would use it as a springboard for a script that i screen wrote and directed.
I'm now getting back into reassembling my entire Patti Collection. I've seen her in concert and this CD was one of her break out bests as it started a healthy collaborative effort with others. I highly suggest you buy it."
