This collection documents the two-decades-plus recording career of R&B icon Luther Vandross. Even before he started putting out records under his own name, he was a first-call session singer (he's the one who created and sang the chorus hook on David Bowie's "Young Americans," for just one example). Throughout the '80s and the '90s, he was (both commercially and aesthetically) one of the most consistently successful R&B singer/songwriter/producers. This healthy two-disc selection of highlights from the impressive Vandross catalogue moves deftly from heartfelt ballads ("A House is Not a Home") to percolating, poppy numbers ("Never Too Much"), spotlighting the man's mellifluous voice and tasteful phrasing at each turn. This is quite clearly the definitive career summary for this deeply influential R&B titan.

Rating 5.0 The Essentila Luther Vandross Music Lover: from Gainesville, FL US -- September, 21, 2007

We have lost a great singer/entertainer in Luther Vandross. He can take a plain song and make it great. He puts his "soul" into each and every song to make this truly a must have collection of his music for all R&B as well as Luther Vandross fans!!
