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!

Format: Audio CD
Whitney Houston has suddenly passed away at the tender age of 48. She has led a tumultuous life, with drug abuse, resulting in the ultimate sacrifice: the loss of her golden voice and her life. According to Tommy Mottola, the boss at Sony, he rightly said that Whitney Houston's voice at the beginning of her career was considered the golden standard, to be imitated by other singers that follow.

To truly appreciate the raw talent of Whitney, a greatest hits album is simply not enough. She has 19 charted albums on Billboard 200 Album Chart. This first release is one of her best, when she first started with raw talent as a singer and supermodel. This album stayed at Number 1 for 14 weeks, and has sold over 13 million copies in US. And if you compare with the best selling album of 2011, Adele's 21 only sold over 5 million. So, go figure.

I remember this was one of two CDs that I bought, when I finally decided to convert from vinyl to digital in 1985. The other purchase was ABBA's Greatest Hits. (Now, my CD collection is near 18,000) Of course, I also have Whitney's original album. You cannot beat the much larger, more detailed front and back covers of the vinyl album covers and the analogue sound from my Oracle turntable.

I love this album. This was Whitney's first album, and her voice is absolutely angelic--just gorgeous. Too bad all of her lifestyle choices over the subsequent 15 years have resulted in the Whitney we have today. Instead of growing into the super-grand diva that this album certainly predicted, we are left with a cracked up, croaky-voiced freakfest.

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.
