Baby Come to Me: The Best of Regina Belle

( 3 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jose F. Promis
Regina Belle stands as one of the most underrated R&B singers to emerge in the late '80s. This collection is an adequate retrospective of the singer, although a couple of her key singles, "Please Be Mine" and her first duet with Peabo Bryson, "Without You," were left off in favor of a few non-hits. However, the collection clocks in at nearly 74 minutes, and the songs are featured in their full-length versions most of them averaging five minutes in length, two over seven, so therefore this CD is nearly filled to capacity. Belle is a singer of sophisticated, jazz-infused quiet storm R&B, similar at times to Anita Baker, Oleta Adams, and Phyllis Hyman. She shines ...

Belle is a singer of sophisticated, jazz-infused quiet storm R&B, similar at times to Anita Baker, Oleta Adams, and Phyllis Hyman. She shines brightest on her signature song "Baby Come to Me." Other highlights on this set include the equally satisfying "So Many Tears" complete with exquisite saxophone solos, the gorgeous "If I Could" which should have been a much bigger hit than it was, her take on Teddy Pendergrass' "Love TKO," the Dianne Warren-penned "All I Want Is Forever" with James "J.T." Taylor, and her biggest hit to date, "A Whole New World Aladdin's Theme," again with Peabo Bryson. There is not too much information on the singer or the songs in terms of liner notes, but at least the chart positions of her hits are included. Save for the two omissions, this set provides a good representation of the singer's best work, and it will have to do until the day when a more complete, two-disc retrospective is issued.

    She has won my heart with this one !

    Regina Belle shot to fame in 1989 with her single, 'Baby Come To Me' -- from her album "Stay With Me" -- which was a perfect example of the jazz-tinged soul-pop balladry which she had been recording since the mid 1980's.
    The title of this 'best of ' collection was also Belle's worldwide hit single. The material featured here has been selected from her Columbia/Sony four studio albums which were recorded between 1987 and 1995.
    With her own sophisticated brand of romantic soul, the acclaimed vocalist was one of the most popular contemporary singers of the eighties and nineties.
    Once hailed as a female Luther Vandross, or as the less commercial side of Anita Baker, besides soul, her singing has roots in jazz and classic pop and she has Oscar and Grammy awards to her name.
    This 'Best of' features a collection of the finest songs from all her albums including the platinum award winning smash 'A Whole New World'.
    When Regina Belle wraps her velvety voice around a love song, the embrace is everlasting.
    From a jazz whisper to a soulful serenade to a gospel shout, the gentle comforts of hope and faith are never far away.
    Regina has soothed us with such standards as " Baby Come To Me" and " Make It Like It Was" and "If I Could".
    Her dynamic duets with Peabo Bryson, Barry White and James "J.T." Taylor are also featured here.
    They are stirring reminders that Regina has always been consistent, engaging, stylish and innovative.
    Never boring or derivative.
    Please, listen also to her latest, unmissable masterpiece "LAZY AFTERNOON".

    Regina Belle has a great song

    This is one of the prettiest and heaart warming songs I have heard in a long time. Every night that I can I listen to Deliliah and love hearing the stories from the people who call in. My daughter lost her fiance on March 23 and is really having a rough time in accepting it. Feeling that life is unfair in taking him when she only had 2 years with him and wanted a life time. A Mother phoned in to have the song I Wish I Could played for her son who was also going through some rough times. When I listened to it I cried all the way through it but it fits the situation because if I could take all the pain away from my daughter and her little girl I would do it instantly and carry it with me. I Have ask for this song in several music stores without success. Now that I know the title I will definitely find it. Thanks to you and this web site I have found the song that says it all and I can let my daughter listen to it.
