Response to Chakasworld's review:
You know, you're absolutely right. I wish they had've done the same thing, but for both of those albums we as Americans have to suffer because the label's divisions here at home are too lazy and too cheap to do it! Sweet Sensation is also on CD for the first time, but costs an arm and leg. To top that off, not released by Universal, could possibly be recorded from a vinyl source (VinylMasterpiece?) It's an excellent recording, so it's cool, plus it has a 12" version of the title track (which was better than what the actual label did for Whatcha Gonna Do...) It's amazing, 30 years later for both these releases at 30 bucks a piece. It's becoming a standard in the recording industry for reprints to be imported. I'm sick of it, that's why I give a shout out to Mr. Paul Williams at Reel Music in Boston for releasing what he has and I look forward to more of this to be done here at home.
Overall, it is a classic album by Stephanie Mills and it should have been printed to CD waaaay before now. Sweet Sensation is another, but it remains a mystery why Universal released the entire Barry White 20th Century/ Casablanca collection years ago and not Stephanie's! I found one of her Casablanca albums on CD, which I believe is the only one, and it was a German import. The MCA catalog was all printed in America (most are out of print) and by the time of those releases, CDs were pretty much the norm. I love these albums, and I wish they would stop the BS on the CD availability and print these more domestically. Hey, hit up Hip-O Select and request Stephanie Mills' entire catalog be reprinted to CD (I just picked up Rare Earth's 3 CD collector set which includes ALL of their studio albums - go pick it up!)
Shout to PTG/ VinylMasterpiece for at least finding pristine resources for their reprints. Shows some integrity and empathy for the listeners of good soul music (and linear notes are in english, plus this release includes some history of the artist) Thank You.
