The Very Best of Patti Austin: The Singles (1969-1986)

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Rhino's 2001 release The Very Best of Patti Austin: The Singles 1969-1986 lives up to the first part of its title, offering 17 songs, including all her big hits on both the pop and R&B charts. This means there's a heavy dose of her duets -- most notably two cuts with James Ingram "Baby, Come to Me," "How Do You Keep the Music Playing?", but also a pair of cuts with Quincy Jones and one with Narada Michael Walden, along with all of her solo signatures. This, combined with fine remastering and song-by-song annotation from Austin herself, makes this the definitive Austin collection.

    Patti Rules!!

    "The Very Best of Patti Austin" is exactly that!Patti is great. What a pleasure to hear all these wonderful songs by a wonderful artist. The chronology is fascinating, beginning with and especially "Family Tree", a lost treasure.

    "The very best"is an apt title.

    I've always been a Patti fan. Interesting to see how she evolves her style from early cuts. Never heard "The Family Tree" before (sort of evokes Aretha) but liked it a lot! Wish I could hear more of her younger years' product.

    Almost the very best of Patti Austin

    This album is a bit disappointing because she left two of my favorites off of it; "That's Enough for Me" and "Where were you when I needed you?" It's unfortunate that I can't find "Where were you when I needed you" on any of her available albums. It was a song originally written by Stevie Wonder called "Superwoman/Where were you when I needed you". Note to Ms Austin; Please include this song on your next "Greatest" CD, it's a terrific recording and you sounded fantastic. It's too bad I can't find it to enjoy it more.
