Long out-of-print, this sultry'n'sassy landmark recording by one of the pioneer do-it-all women in black popular music has been lovingly re-issued on CD. The package comes complete with copious liner notes, 12-inch dance mixes AND single versions of "Forget Me Nots," the Rushen/Brenda Russell duet "Breakout" and the instrumental smash "Number One."
Classy, jazz-informed disco with solid-rock bottom commingles with impossibly lush ballads as composer/arranger/multi-instrumentalist Rushen weaves it all together with her exquisite voice. Produced by Rushen with the aid of Charles Mims, Jr. and a bevy of studio aces, STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART gets a slight edge over the simultaneously re-issued BEST OF PATRICE RUSHEN for its organic continuity. A stone classic.
