Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rob Theakston
Both bands are revered for their releases during Motown's second coming, both bands had massive hits, and both bands are largely comprised of the DeBarge family.

One half of the release focuses on the powerhouse DeBarge crusade of the '80s, and the other half concentrates on the uptempo disco-soul and quiet storm of Switch. The only noticeable omission is DeBarge's "Who's Johnny?" from the Short Circuit movie soundtrack, but other than that, it's rock-solid and a worthy investment for a new listener or ...

    Just a taste

    I recently received this cd as I was excited to find Calling All Girls by Switch on it. My version is lovingly scratched up on an lp. This cd is for anyone who has heard of the two groups and may be familiar with their songs. For example, All This Love by Debarge or There'll Never Be by Switch. It gives just a sample of how terrific these groups were. However, this cd is not for a fan. The editing of songs leaves a lot to be desired. For example, I Call Your Name sung by the great Bobby Debarge is cut by half. To hear the sheer beauty of this song, you must hear it in its entirety. I would recommend this cd as a quick listen in your car, or at work. To hear what these groups were really capable of, check out the following: Debarge- the millenium collection or ultimate collection. Switch -the millenium collection (this gives you full length versions of songs) or try browsing through old record stores for the original lp's. I rated this cd as three stars because of the bad editing and not because of the groups.
