An underrated debut album by Tina B., which includes the #80s electro classic Honey to a Bee - the album is produced/co-written by her husband, mighty producer Arthur Baker - sadly, this album has never been released on CD - long overdue!

Agreed - long overdue for a CD reissue - I've been waiting for year - sophisticated sexy disco boogie cuts with Luther's rich vocals on top - pure bliss

The rhythm track of Shake It Right reminds me of Cabaret Voltaire's "Sensoria," which makes sense, since they co-produced this song.

What a tragedy that Donna's "I'm a Rainbow" was shelved and not released in 1981 as originally planned, not being commercially released 15 years later (!) in 1996. Donna + Moroder still had the magic touch and were looking forward, not looking back.... See full review

What with the amazing MURK mixes (especially the Murk Extended Ride), I'm utterly baffled why the label never released this as a commercial remixes CD single? Would have been a hit and I would have bought it to complete my collection. Oh well.

The label really missed a major opportunity in 2017: They should have reissued a 30th anniversary expanded deluxe 2-CD version of 1987's "Whitney" (just like they did for her 1985 s/t debut in 2010 for its 25th anniv. deluxe edition) and include 12"... See full review

Agreed - worth the price of admission for Kerri Chandler's overlooked remix in his signature "Kaoz 6;23" style = deep, dark, and dirty house at best!

Great deluxe edition, BUT a missed opportunity to include some U.S. 12" remixes, such as the David Morales-Frank Knuckles (RIP) remix of "Breathe Life into Me" and the Bruce Forest club mix of "My One Temptation," my fave mix of the song - too bad,... See full review

The description should mention that the music of this track is lifted from Malcolm X "No Sell Out" 1983 Tommy Boy 12" (produced by Keith LeBlanc) - a stone-cold hip-hop/electro classic.

I don't understand all the "EDM" comments here - this is NOT EDM - this is Kevin Saunderson's 2020 update of his classic Inner City tech-house sound - the DNA and blue print of Inner City are found in these tracks. A solid comeback, considering that... See full review
