"While the rules make this site work consistantly [sic], there are a few self appointed want to be cops here on discogs that if they had their way we would only have a few thousand entries. The adherence to rules over getting a complete catalog built and fixed along the way is annoying. Speaking of not being relevant, the video at [...]BAQX66w0WyI disproves the statement that no one owns a copy yet. And I am quite sure that Chad is not the only one with a copy already, so it could be listed here "by the first rule on discogs"." - foxweed

"Recipe for Happiness:
- 2 Heaping cups of Patience
- 1 Heartful of Love
- 2 Handfuls for generosity
- A dash of laughter
- 1 Headful of understanding

Sprinkle generously with kindness, add plenty of faith with hope, and mix well. Then spread over a period of a lifetime, and serve generously to everyone you meet.
" (Karen Williams, 1988)


Ratings (*I rarely rate this lowly; **I'm 99.9% sure I can still like this/the release)
★★★★★ - perfect; [probably] the best
★★★★☆ - it's good, near perfect; not necessarily anything to drool over
★★★☆☆ - mediocre, amateur, and or purely average**
★★☆☆☆ - terrible; not the worst, but worse than 3 stars...*/**
★☆☆☆☆ - just...the worst, I guess? (I'm not very sure what to say*)

I don't think I've ever heard "Look Into My Eyes" until now. It actually ties with the other one in terms of goodness, but "Express" is more exciting. More mellow and laidback.

Listening to the instrumentation of "Heaven Knows," that actually makes sense; it'd personally be a bit awkward to convert that to live instruments and live/FOH engineering. At least she beautifully sung the other single from that album, "Somethin'."
