Platinum & Gold Collection

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
The Phyllis Hyman entry in the Platinum & Gold Collection series concentrates on the singer's most commercially successful years, from the late '70s through the early '80s also her Buddah and Arista years, while including a stray pick from later recordings. As with most of the other discs in this midline series, it's short and sweet, but it's rather peculiar in that it sacrifices a few chart entries -- "Can't We Fall in Love Again," "Riding the Tiger," and "No One Can Love You More" are absent -- for album cuts and a small clutch of obscurities.
