4.0 out of 5 stars ...life after 20th Century Fox Records recordings!
While I thought at the time of each single release off this CD that perhaps they weren't as wonderful as earlier recordings from one of my all-time favorite artists (exception: "You're Puttin' A Rush On Me"...I've always loved that song), time has corrected my judgement and now I listen to this CD quite often. Revisiting songs such as "Something In The...

2.0 out of 5 stars A good collection from a very underrated Diva
Stephanie Mills is by far the greatest soul artist in the world. Why? must you ask because where can you find a soulful voice none other than Patti Labelle Aretha Franklin and Dionne Warwick. MCA now releases the first part of Stephanie Mills MCA years. Not only do you get the Angela Winbush produced I learned to respect{The power of love} from Stephanie's self-titled...

2.0 out of 5 stars A good collection from a very underrated Diva, Oct. 16 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Greatest Hits: 1985 to 1993 (Audio CD)
Stephanie Mills is by far the greatest soul artist in the world. Why? must you ask because where can you find a soulful voice none other than Patti Labelle Aretha Franklin and Dionne Warwick. MCA now releases the first part of Stephanie Mills MCA years. Not only do you get the Angela Winbush produced I learned to respect{The power of love} from Stephanie's self-titled 1985 MCA debut and the song Home from Stephanie's 1989 album of the same name. This cd also includes the fun Bit By Bit Stephanie's top hit and the theme song to the Chevy Chase comedy Fletch {This is a short remix of this song but if you want the extended version get the Fletch soundtrack which is now out of print} Get this collection if you can and see for yourself a diva with lots of soul. I would also recommend any cd by Cheryl "Pepsii" Riley especially her out of print Chapters if you want to hear a voice like Stephanie Mills and also Stephanie's recent gospel album...

This review is from: Greatest Hits: 1985 to 1993 (Audio CD)
While I thought at the time of each single release off this CD that perhaps they weren't as wonderful as earlier recordings from one of my all-time favorite artists (exception: "You're Puttin' A Rush On Me"...I've always loved that song), time has corrected my judgement and now I listen to this CD quite often. Revisiting songs such as "Something In The Way (You Make Me Feel) & "I Have Learned To Respect The Power Of Love" will give you, the listener, a sumptuous feeling. Some tunes such as "Stand Back" will make you nostalgic for the early to mid 80's while gems like "Never Do You Wrong" (an underappreciated track from the underapprecitated "Something Real" album) will help you revisit R&B and hip-hop of the late 80's into the early 90's. "Bit by Bit" the theme from Fletch, is good, uptempo fun. This is a strong, varied body of work from a fantastic vocalist.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Diva!, July 9 2002
By 
This review is from: Greatest Hits: 1985 to 1993 (Audio CD)
Recently, I attended the 2002 Hampton Jazz Festival. The shows included Patti Labelle, Tina Marie and of course Stephanie. Stephanie blew away everyone. Tina and Patti were excellent, but Stephanie was the one with the heavenly voice! I maintained that Patti was the best female singer of all time - until Ms. Stephanie graced us with hear blessed pipes. I take my hat off to Ms. Stephanie. Today with fabrcated music - here is what a True DIVA should sound like...... The CD is a must....

4.0 out of 5 stars Soulful, June 16 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Greatest Hits: 1985 to 1993 (Audio CD)
This album like each of her others is great. Stephanie has a voice that will send chills up your spine and send your mind into the words of the song. You wouldn't imagine such a big sound coming from such a small person (she's only as tall as prince maybe shorter) but with her music you will not be disappointed.
