It's not quite the ultimate, but it's close. A Teena Marie album that doesn't include "Déjà Vu (I've Been Here Before)," "Dear Lover," and "Out on a Limb" doesn't merit the ultimate tag, but still, there are plenty of goodies. The soulful Lady T will bring you to tears on "Young Love," "My Dear Mr. Gaye," and "Irons in the Fire"; she remains as effective on upbeat

Overview

It's not quite the ultimate, but it's close. A Teena Marie album that doesn't include "Déjà Vu (I've Been Here Before)," "Dear Lover," and "Out on a Limb" doesn't merit the ultimate tag, but still, there are plenty of goodies. The soulful Lady T will bring you to tears on "Young Love," "My Dear Mr. Gaye," and "Irons in the Fire"; she remains as effective on upbeat rockers like "I Need Your Lovin'," "Work It," and "Square Biz." The album also includes her biggest charting single "Lovergirl," the exotic "Portuguese Love," and her career-blossoming hit with Rick James, "I'm a Sucker for Your Love."

The talented artist, Miss. Teena Marie has not received the credit or recognition that she deserves as a gifted songtress. Although not credited with having a string of #1 Hits under her belt, she is truly a great and ''must listen to'' singer of our times. This Lady can hypnotically deliver a tune so smooth, so tantalizing that a Janet, Whitney, or Madonna can only dream about. Her vocal range and deliverance are evident on my favorite songs of all times such as ''If I Were A Bell,'' ''Portuguese Love,'' and ''Out On A Limb.'' Teena's duo talent can also be heard on the R&B favorite ''Fire and Desire'' with R&B ole' school Bad Boy, Rick James. I look forward to hearing more great music by this talented artist.
