All Music Guide - Rob Theakston
Without question, Jeffrey Osborne was one of the most polished and accomplished R&B vocalists of the '80s -- but his career also stretched back into the '70s, as he was the vocalist for the long-running funk ensemble L.T.D. This compilation includes those years, making it the most thorough greatest-hits survey of Osborne's career to date. Still, all of the great moments from his solo endeavors are what make this a truly worthwhile purchase. His biggest hits for A&M Records, like "On the Wings of Love" and "You Should Be Mine The Woo Woo Song," as well as "She's on the Left" and "Every Time I Turn Around Back in Love Again," are all included here.

But the truly amazing thing about Osborne's body of work is its timelessness. The production values are still crisp and sound surprisingly up-to-date compared to some of his peers. There are more succinct editions of Osborne's best material available, but nothing this thorough. For fans of R&B and quiet storm, this is an absolutely essential piece to add to a collection.

    Mr. Osbornes BIGGEST Fan

    The Ultimate Collection is just that, the best of the best,Jeffery had to offer us. This is a great collection of all his #1 hits and more. The CD starts with the Love Ballad and the new CD,''Thats For Sure,'' ends with a live version of that same song. All the songs have a special meaning, that touches on all levels of any relationship. On this CD, Jeffery Woo, Woo's you because he Really dont Need a Light To See Through YOu,because he goes All the Way, which keeps you Holding On, with The love Power he has. Jeffery is only Human as he sings the Love Ballad as we all fall Back In Love Again. This is a CD, you must hear, in order to appreciate the Man himself. I had the pleasure to travel 100 miles, from Santa Babara to LA, at a concert at the Universal Amp.,and it was worth it all over.This CD is the ''Ultimate''.

    memories from heaven

    This recording artist did not record enough albums. Where is he now? Is he still in the music field? I loved all his songs. I think he is a very talented individual.
