Product Description

Product Description

When Whitney Houston arrived on the scene as a fresh-faced ing(nue in 1985, few could have predicted the level of superstardom she'd achieve or how fast she'd do it. Certainly the voice was there--supple, soulful, and when called upon, explosive. But the material on her debut album--and those that followed it, for that matter--was bland pop pap that mostly wasted her gift. Still there were numerous hits on Whitney Houston, including a trio of ballads: "You Give Good Love," "Saving All My Love for You," and the extraordinarily vapid "Greatest Love of All." The up-tempo "How Will I Know" was a mere trifle, perhaps, but it's one of her most winning performances. And that video. That dress. 'Nuff said. --Daniel Durchholz

I didn't get to hear this album until over a year after its release in spring 1986. It is a very fabulous album. Some of the songs are a little sappy in the lyrics, but Whitney overcomes that with her superb voice and range on all of them. There are two songs on here, Someone For Me and Thinkin' About You (the two dance numbers) that give How Will I Know some stiff competition! I have played those songs more than "How". Loved the duets she did with Jermaine Jackson and Teddy Pendergrass. And she sounds superb on the remake of George Benson's "The Greatest Love of All." I still think she sings a little too loud on "All At Once", especially "Though I must face it all alooooooooooone" singing it too loud. I go "Whitney! You sound too loud!" every time those parts come up! I still love "You Give Good Love"--that was the SONG! Whitney at her rawest form there! Although she moved on to pop-oriented stuff and soundtrack hits like "Bodyguard", this is such a unique debut, very R&B. I think they waited a year too late to release the later singles--they sounded better in '85 than '86. It still holds up today every time I hear one of that album's hits on the radio! Timeless songs!!!!!! Heavily imitated by wannabe singers to this day on talent shows, American Idol and the like!

When Whitney Houston released her debut album in 1985, things took off slowly; radio took a moment to realize how talented this lady was, and some critics had mixed feelings about the album's glossy production. But 25 million copies later, "Whitney Houston" proved the critics wrong.

This is a remastered edition of Whitney's legendary debut and the sound quality is amazing. It also includes five bonus tracks : hard to find remixes of "Someone for me" and "Thinking about you", two versions of "How will I know" (an acapella rendition and an extended dance mix) and a jaw-dropping live version of "Greatest love of all" that's worth the price of the album alone. As for the album's original songs, most of them are already classics, whether they're chart topping singles ("Saving all my love for you", "Greatest love of all", "How will I know", "You give good love", "Hold me") or songs that should have been singles ("All at once", "Nobody loves me like you do"). Best of all, "Greatest love of all" is finally released here in its original grand-piano form, something that fans have been wishing to get for ages (the original CD included the single remix instead). This music has stood the test of time, and has lost none of its timeless appeal.

There has obviously been a lot of thought behind the packaging, from extensive liner notes to rare photos from the early stages of Whitney's career. And though I would have much prefered an interview with the lady herself, Clive Davis' own observations about the album (detailed in a written interview inside the album's booklet) are certainly interesting. This package also includes a bonus DVD which features the four music videos for the album's official singles, a handful of live TV performances and an interview with Whitney and Clive.

By S. Quinto on Oct. 27 2003
Format: Audio CD
If there was only one word to explain Whitney Houston debut album, the word will be: POP. Her debut album was her most succesful selling LP ever, and the 10 tracks that were gathered here are just well crafted POP jewels. Pretty far from any early influence she had from New York street sounds or Baptist Church choir gospel music, Clive Davis decided to launch Whitney as a mega-POP artist that would appeal to a wider audience, specially adult contemporary, although was a smash POP hit that stand the title of classic like it or not, felt a little short to become an R&B classic, in fact it wasn't that well receive in urban radio airplay. But after all the music stand and the tracks say it all, "Saving All My Love" a rendition to love affair, "How Will I Know" the eternal question? of if somebody loves us?, "Greatest Love Of All" the most classical uplifting song ever perform by every American Idol fan, "Thinking About You" the R&B song of the album, "All At Once" a simply pleasure, and others, although sometimes sounds dated, this album stand up as a a classic.
