This fine compilation is, in a way, a perfect introduction to the soulful vocal stylings of Regina Belle. Intimate, sensual, and expressive, Belle's voice sounds as if it was created to sing love songs, as these 15 tracks attest. Whether putting her distinctive stamp on standards ("Make It Like It Was") or duetting with first-string bedroom crooners Johnny Mathis ("Better Together") and Barry White ("Quiet Time"), Belle proves perfectly suited to communicating matters of the heart. This is a fine sampling of her seductive brand of romantic soul.
