DEEP CUTS: BEST OF BALLADS features 15 songs in the vein of the chart-topping power ballad "To Be With You".
In the early '90s it seemed the radio could not get enough of Mr.Big's power ballad "To Be With You." With the rise of rap and short-hair rock, Mr.Big eventually disappeared from the airwaves. It seems that their fan base has not, however, so they have released a collection of their ballads (complete with short hair), including the big radio hit that grabbed them a lot of attention from non-rock audiences. The rockin' ballads on Deep Cuts are best considered as an early-'90s phenomenon, intended mainly for die-hard Mr.Big fans who refuse to let the band fade into the "where are they now" netherworld. ~ Diana Potts
